Regular dental exams and cleanings are the best way to protect your oral health as well as that of your entire family. Finding and diagnosing problems early can prevent loss of teeth, pain, bad breath, and many other issues that can affect both the health of your mouth and the rest of your body. When you visit our dental office in Vinton, we make sure that you receive the best dental health care possible. We want you to enjoy great oral health that helps you keep your teeth in great shape for life.
We make it easy for you to keep up with regular dental exams and cleanings by scheduling appointments that are convenient for you and your family. Dr. Law and our staff will even work around your schedule to make appointments that allow your whole family to have all your exams done at the same visit.
Regular Dental Exams Protect Your Family’s Oral Health
During your regular exams, we will check your teeth carefully to find problems that you may not be aware of. At this time we will also make a note of any changes to your teeth since your last check-up. We use modern digital x-rays that let us see what’s going on inside your teeth and find problems that may not show up when we do a visual exam. This is also a good time to answer any questions you have and evaluate any problems you may be having.
Remember that it’s important for your children to see the dentist regularly. It’s the best way to make sure that their teeth stay strong and healthy. Our staff enjoys treating kids and works hard to make sure that they feel safe and comfortable when they visit our office. We recommend that your kids start seeing the dentist as early as age three. Early problem detection and prevention education can go a long way in getting children on the path to long-term oral health.
Why Professional Dental Cleanings Are Important
A regular brushing and flossing routine at home is one of the best ways to keep your teeth healthy. Our dental hygienist will educate you on proper home care. But no matter how well you take care of your teeth, you still need regular dental cleanings. Only a trained dental hygienist can clear away the dental plaque and tartar that causes cavities and gum disease.
If you don’t keep up with regular dental cleanings, you can develop gum disease (periodontal disease). Gum disease can easily become a serious problem, and you may not even know it’s there. It can lead to tooth loss and other complicated problems that become expensive to fix. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the U.S.
