Returning To Preventive Dental Care

What can happen if you spend too much time away from the dentist’s office? Problems that we can identify and treat in their early stages can worsen if you do not have your smile evaluated by a professional. By the time you realize that something is wrong, you can find that you need more involved restorative work, or that you have several teeth that are now in poor health. Because you lose out on teeth cleanings when you skip your regular appointments, you are vulnerable to tartar accumulation, something that can make you more likely to develop new problems with your teeth and gums, too. Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office is here to support you in your return to routine services. We provide preventive care for adults as well as kids, which means that we are here to help households address their dental concerns.

When Did Your Last Dental Exam Occur?

If your last dental exam took place more than six months ago, you should take care to set up your next appointment. When you do so, you can enjoy a detailed teeth cleaning as well as an evaluation that will alert you to any oral health issues. Unless told otherwise by your dentist, you should aim to have another appointment every six months. A semiannual preventive visit lowers your risk for dental problems, and it keeps you safe from problems that can worsen and ultimately require more involved services at a later date.

What To Look Forward To At Your Next Checkup

At your next dental exam, your teeth and gums will be closely checked for any issues that might need to be addressed. That means we can look out for cavities and gum disease, but we can also look for evidence of poor bite function or any other issue that might impact your well-being. You will also receive a thorough teeth cleaning to remove plaque and tartar, something that will make your smile easier to maintain. In addition to listening to your dentist discuss your current oral health concerns, you can ask any questions that you have about your oral health, or about procedures that focus on improving your smile.

Our Office Is Here To Help Kids And Adults With Preventive Care

We provide preventive and restorative services to kids and adults. This makes dental work easier for families to access, as they can find one location prepared to serve all of them. At our office, we can provide your kids with an important introduction to oral health care, something that will help them protect their teeth and gums as they age, as well as something that helps them learn good hygiene habits to practice at home.
