Spring Cleaning Your Teeth – The Importance Of Regular Dental Care
Although Cincinnati had one of the warmest winters to date, we could not be happier that spring has arrived. Many people love the spring because they take advantage of the popular term “spring cleaning” and make an attempt to refresh the inside and outside of their home. Several in-depth and lengthy cleaning and organization tasks are added to the list to be sure that your home is ready to enjoy this summer. Your home is not the only area in your life that can benefit from “spring cleaning”. Your teeth can benefit as well. Regular dental care is a must to ensure that your oral health is in the best possible shape.
Importance of Regular Oral Hygiene Examinations
Regular dental visits are a necessity. Even if you are diligent with your oral hygiene routine and have excellent oral health, regular visits to our office are a must. Similar to deep cleaning your house during “spring cleaning”, we thoroughly clean the teeth, removing any lingering plaque and bacteria from between the teeth, on the surface of the teeth, and along the gumline. We also inspect the teeth and mouth for signs of decay, gum disease, and oral cancer.
Be Proactive, Not Reactive
Unfortunately, some people are of the opinion that they only need to visit the dentist when they are experiencing a problem. That is the worst thing you can do! Avoiding routine dental care allows problems in the mouth to continue to progress and worsen. Dental problems do not heal on their own and will continue to worsen until you receive dental intervention. When regular dental care is a priority, we are able to be proactive, spot any problem areas in the mouth in the early stages, and treat the problem immediately before a more involved treatment is needed.
If it has been some time since your last oral hygiene examination and cleaning, we would love to see you! As mentioned above, now is a great time to schedule your appointment so you can enjoy the upcoming summer worry free! Be sure to contact our office, which is located in Cincinnati, OH, to schedule an appointment. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
