There’s no question that healthy teeth are a part of overall health. At Royal Palm Dental Associates, we recommend that all our patients have regular teeth cleanings and check-ups twice a year to remove plaque and check for cavities. The build-up of plaque, a sticky, soft, film of bacteria, can lead to more serious health problems, including tooth decay, cavities and periodontal disease.
Our dental hygienists instruct each patient on proper brushing and flossing techniques for the best routine care between visits. If tooth sensitivity is a problem, we’ll ensure that you’re comfortable throughout your cleaning. Don’t put your general health at risk by foregoing the basics.
At each regular visit, your dentist will take the time for a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, allowing you time to discuss any problems or concerns you may have. If a cavity or other problem is detected, your dentist will discuss options for treatment. In some cases, your dentist may recommend sealants to prevent a potential cavity from worsening or prevent cavity formation in a cavity-prone location.
If you have crowns or dental implants, it is especially important that your dentist evaluate them regularly to ensure that they’re in good shape. Your dentist will instruct you on proper care of your crown or implant as well.
