The Importance of Routine Dental Exams and Cleanings
When it comes to achieving optimal oral health, regular visits to the dentist in Brooklyn are vital. However, many patients today overlook checkups and exams, leading to more serious dental complications down the line. Today, the team at Advanced Dental Care of NYC is going to explore why routine dental exams are so important.
Why Routine Exams Matter
Dental exams give your dentist a chance to spot minor oral health complications before they become more serious. Not only does this save your smile, but it makes dental exams far more economic than waiting for more serious complications to emerge. Additionally, routine exams can be very educational. They give you the opportunity to ask your dentist about your oral hygiene habits, as well as how they can be improved!
See Your Dentist Every 6 Months
At Advanced Dental Care, our dentists recommend a professional oral health care schedule based on your individual needs. Most patients simply need to visit every 6 months, though, some patients benefit from more frequent visits. Our dental care team provides comprehensive dental cleanings.
Our patients often comment on how comprehensive our oral examinations are and how thorough our teeth cleanings are. Our oral exam includes bi-yearly bite-wing x-rays and yearly periodontal screening to look for gum disease, as well as a physical inspection of the teeth, gums, jaw joints and muscles. Our dental hygienists perform teeth cleanings which involve gently scraping the teeth and gums to remove plaque and tartar build up and flossing.
