Keeping your teeth and gums healthy requires proper brushing and flossing habits. Dentists and the American Dental Association recommend having regular dental exams in order to maintain and help prevent any serious oral health issues. Not only should you be visiting your dentist every six months, you should follow the advice of your health care administrator. Everyone has different oral health needs. Also, if you have children, it is important to have them visit the dentist regularly as well as teaching them smart and important oral health habits.
If you have not visited a dentist in more than six months, the following are a few processes that will take place when you visit your dentist. Your dentist will conduct a routine dental exam. This means that the dentist will inspect and assess the condition of your teeth and gums. They will also look for any sings of gum disease, inflammation, tooth decay, cracked or chipped teeth, cavities and bite alignment as well as any other oral health aliments that might show up during the exam. Along with the examination, your teeth will be cleaned by removing excess plaque and tartar buildup. Flossing and polishing are the finishing touches at the completion of the exam that will give you a refreshed and healthy clean smile.
