Are You Behind On Regular Dental Checkups?

If you consistently schedule and attend routine dental exams, you stay safe against tartar buildup, gum disease, and issues with dental decay. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office is ready to see patients and help them stay on top of their dental health needs. To stay safe from the threat of coronavirus, we understand that you may have reduced activity out of the home. We have followed CDC and ADA guidelines to ensure that our practice remains a safe place to visit, so you can still see us for your regular dental checkups safely. To ensure our patients and team members are safe, we have updated how we greet and schedule our appointments, and we have introduced new tools and technology, including advanced air filters, to protect against infection risks.

Our Office Is Ready To Help You Maintain Your Oral Health

By adjusting our office policies and introducing new technology, we are able to keep a safe environment for those who need help with active oral health issues and those who are due for their routine checkups. We have adjusted our scheduling to reduce how likely you are to be around other patients, we have brought in more stations for sanitizing, and we have removed items from our waiting area that people tend to handle. Special air filtration systems take particles out of the air so that they cannot recirculate and put others at risk. Because of this, we are able to continue welcoming people who are due for dental care!

Problems You Can Experience When You Stop Scheduling Checkups

Staying consistent with your checkups will help you avoid problems like tooth decay and gum disease, issues that will worsen over time and cause discomfort as well as infection risks. If you go without these exams, you can let a cavity continue growing until root canal therapy is needed to address an actively painful tooth infection. If you show signs of gingivitis, we can provide services to address the responsible bacteria and stop the problem from becoming more advanced. Thanks to your scheduled cleanings, we are also ready to help you deal with the problem of tartar buildup. When tartar deposits gather on your teeth, they require treatment from your hygienist to remove.

Dealing With Oral Health Issues Identified During A Checkup

What will happen if your dentist finds something wrong with your smile at your next exam? It may be unwelcome news to hear that you have a cavity, or a problem with gum disease, but identifying the problem gives us the chance to address it before it worsens. For problems with gum disease, we can target periodontal bacteria when cleaning your smile to stop a problem from worsening. If you have a cavity, we can address it with a dental filling and keep it from spreading further.
