Providing Top-Notch Preventative Care in Florence
You may think that brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once each day is enough to keep your teeth in great condition. While your home care routine is incredibly important to the health of your teeth and mouth, there is no replacement for professional dental care. If it’s been more than six months since your last dental cleaning and exam, call Heiden Dental Office today.
The Keys to Preventative Care
When you visit us for the very first time and then during every following checkup, we’ll take X-rays of your teeth to identify any current or future dental problems. From there we’ll be able to create a custom treatment plan for keeping your teeth as healthy as possible. Our hygienists will clean your teeth, ridding them of tartar, which is hardened plaque that builds up on the teeth. Only professional cleanings can remove tartar. Everyone deals with plaque and tartar, though thorough and correct brushing and flossing at home will make removing the tartar even easier.
Throughout your whole checkup, we’ll be examining your teeth and gums for cavities, signs of infection and the early symptoms gum disease. Many oral health issues, if caught early, can be treated very easily. However, if left untreated, issues like gum disease will continue to grow and spread, ultimately threatening your overall health and not just your teeth and gums.
The checks done during preventative care visits will ultimately save you a lot of time and money when it comes to your oral health. Don’t put off visiting the dentist for any reason!
