Dental check-ups are very important and must be a part of your oral hygiene routine. Brushing and flossing are a must, and this will help you maintain healthy teeth and gums, but visits to Cygnet Dental are equally as important because they have the knowledge to detect problems that are not visible to the naked eye. They will monitor the health of your mouth to help you maintain your beautiful smile.
Contrary to what many people believe, dental check-ups are not just about getting your teeth cleaned, and there are so many other important aspects involved. We will polish and clean your teeth, and we will also:
Our dentist will examine your entire mouth and will check every tooth to make sure there are no cavities. If cavities are present, their professional examination methods will allow them to detect it early on, which will make them a lot easier to treat.
Detect Gum Disease
Many people do not realize they have gum disease, and if left untreated, this can become a very serious problem. Our dentist will look out for signs and will be able to catch it early so that they can treat the problem if detected.
Check On Your Fillings
Fillings can become loose over time, but our dentist will examine them to make sure they are secure. They will also ensure that your fillings are not defective and that there is no decay.
Detect Early Signs Of Oral Cancer
Our dentist will check your mouth for signs of oral cancer, and this is especially important in patients who smoke or use tobacco because they are more prone to it.
Assess Your Oral Hygiene
There are proper ways of brushing and flossing, and our dentist will ensure you are doing these tasks correctly. They will help you maintain good dental hygiene habits, which is very important because oral health is directly linked to your overall health, so it must be in good condition.
Two of the most common types of dental problems include tooth decay and gum disease, and our dentist can help you fight both. Tooth decay occurs whenever your tooth’s enamel is destroyed because of food being left on your teeth. The bacteria in your mouth will thrive on these foods and will produce acids, which will destroy the enamel and cause tooth decay. Gum disease, on the other hand, is a chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums as well as the bone supporting your teeth. Gingivitis affects only the gums and is a mild form of gum disease but if left untreated, it can lead to a more serious disease called periodontitis, which is far more destructive.
