Why You Shouldn't Skip Your Dental Checkups

Regular checkups allow our dentist at Dental Aesthetic, to identify early signs of disease or infection or to catch problems like tooth decay before they require more extensive treatment. For example, if your gums bleed when you brush and floss your teeth, this could indicate gum disease. The sooner this condition is diagnosed, the sooner you can begin to treat it.

Regular cleanings also allow our dentist to remove plaque buildup from your smile and prevent tartar from forming on your teeth. This can help to prevent tooth decay from occurring in the first place. In addition to preventing tooth decay, regular professional cleanings can also help brighten your smile and keep your mouth feeling fresh.

Preventing and Treating Dental Issues

Skipping your checkups can result in serious, painful, and costly dental problems down the road. One of the most common side effects of missing appointments is tooth damage, such as decay, gum disease, or tooth loss. When left untreated, these issues can lead to other health issues, such as heart disease and diabetes.

If you skip out on your regular cleanings to prevent cavities, you’re opening yourself up to even more tooth decay in the future. That’s because plaque buildup, bacteria, and tartar can all lead to oral health issues like gingivitis, an infection of the gums that can cause bleeding, receding gums, and even loss of teeth.

By avoiding the dentist, you risk more severe dental issues than a simple cavity. Neglected and ignored tooth pain can turn into painful abscesses and infections that can even cause death if not treated properly. On the other hand, with early intervention from your dentist, you can prevent these issues altogether.

Maintaining Your Oral Health

Just because you brush and floss your teeth every day doesn’t mean you can skip your biannual checkups. These appointments can ensure that you maintain excellent oral health and prevent tooth decay and other issues before they cause severe damage to your smile.

During your visit, we will perform an oral exam to check for any signs of decay or gum disease. We will also check for oral cancer and other conditions affecting your health. Our hygienist will also professionally clean your teeth to remove plaque buildup that brushing alone can’t eliminate.

In addition to these services, our dentist will take the time to discuss your oral hygiene habits and answer any questions you may have about your oral health. We can help you feel confident in your at-home care routine and keep your mouth healthy for a lifetime by addressing your concerns at each checkup.

During your regular checkup, your dentist will also examine your teeth and gums for any problems. Get in touch with Dental Aesthetic at 10220 W Bell Rd Suite 104, Sun City, AZ 85351, or call 623-300-5432 to schedule an appointment.
