At Epic Family Dentistry, we strongly encourage all of our patients to visit us at least twice a year for a dental checkup and cleaning. Why? We firmly believe in taking a proactive approach to oral health, and these preventive checkups and cleanings are critical for maintaining your smile in the long term. At these appointments, we can make a significant difference in how your smile looks and feels now and for many years to come.
During your dental checkup, Dr. Azmoodeh will visually check your gums, teeth, tongue, cheeks, and mouth for any indications of serious conditions, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Using advanced technology, such as digital X-rays and intraoral cameras, Dr. Azmoodeh can find issues under the surface or between teeth, where diagnosis can be harder with the naked eye alone.
If you wait to see us until you notice a problem on your own, you may experience severe pain or already have suffered significant damage to your oral health. Our team has the knowledge and experience to catch and treat these problems even in their early stages of development—before they have a chance to cause you and your smile significant harm or pain. By conducting this exam twice a year, we can make sure you get the care you need to keep your oral health in good order.
At Epic Family Dentistry, we do more than just treat existing oral problems. We also actively help you prevent future ones by providing a thorough dental cleaning every six months. Even with daily brushing and flossing, plaque can remain in your mouth and slowly build up. Over time, it hardens into tartar, which is much more difficult to remove, and can cause all sorts of trouble for your teeth and gums. For example, gum disease is caused by the bacteria in plaque and can have serious consequences for your oral and overall health.
Luckily, we have the training and tools to remove this buildup for you. Plus, we can remove many surface stains through your dental cleaning, helping you feel more confident in your smile. Coming to your routine appointment every six months helps to stop oral problems before they even have the opportunity to start.
As small as these appointments may seem, your dental checkups and cleanings play an important part in protecting your oral health. Our compassionate, experienced team is committed to helping you keep your mouth happy and healthy in the long run. Contact us to schedule an appointment with us today!
