Our dentists here at Dental Care of Beverly Hills recommend that you have at least two checkups a year to make sure that your teeth and gums are in perfect condition. Getting checkups can help dentists prevent, treat and avoid dental issues that may arise in the future.
Many people think that professional cleanings and checkups are not necessary when they have a good oral hygiene routine at home. Brushing and flossing is very important; however, there are hard to reach areas that can often become problematic. Most caries and cavities appear in the teeth that are hardest to reach most of the time, which is why cleanings can help further protect your teeth.
Having a professional cleaning done will help protect your teeth with the use of sealants and fluoride treatment and also make sure that the areas and cavities that might buildup bacteria are clean and free of damage. Your dentist or dental hygienist will thoroughly clean each tooth making sure that they are smooth and free of tartar and plaque. Special tools will be used to reach between the teeth.
A complete checkup will allow the dentist to check for unusual formations and tissue in your mouth, sores and abnormalities that might be signs of cancer. During your complete checkup, you will also have digital X-rays taken of your mouth. Here at Dental Care of Beverly Hills we care about our patients, so we opt for digital X-rays, which have been proven to reduce radiation by 60%.
