Checkup and Cleaning
Ideally, you should have your teeth cleaned and examined every six months. If you haven’t done so, now is the time to turn things around. Get your teeth examined and x-ray completed. The dentist can identify trouble areas by looking in your mouth and looking at the x-ray. They can also clean your teeth to reduce plaque and to reduce the risk of gum disease. Checkups help to reduce the risk of dental problems as issues can be addressed before they get worse.
If you have amazing teeth, you may be able to leave that appointment and schedule for six months down the road. If you have dental concerns, a treatment plan will be created for you. This includes what they feel needs to be done to get your teeth looking their very best. Tell them what you feel are your concerns as well. If you are worried about the color of your teeth or the way they, feel you need to say something.
The treatment plan includes one-time treatments including teeth whitening or a root canal. Dentists can also help you to understand the process for more in-depth treatment such as for periodontal disease or if you need your teeth to be straightened.
