The Importance of Dental Checkups

Did you know that the American Dental Association suggests visiting the dentist twice a year for teeth cleaning and a checkup on your oral health? Many people cast aside the importance of getting their regular cleaning due to busy schedule or lifestyle. However, if you ignore your oral health, you could be heading for an oral disaster.

During your dental checkup, your dentist will check your teeth for any cavities. This is important because if left untreated, cavities can lead to tooth loss. Your dentist will also check your teeth and gums for any signs of gum disease or any oral cancer.

However, going into your dental office for a six month check up will also help because your dentist will provide a deeper cleaning that will last until your next six month check up. With the deeper cleaning treatment a dentist can give, your teeth will be cleaner and fresher.

Don’t postpone your dental treatment anymore and come in and talk to your dentist today. Your dentist can assist you with any questions or concerns you have pertaining to your oral care. So, schedule your appointment today by calling 703-385-3800 and keep your smile clean and fresh.
