We all know that good oral hygiene has your teeth looking sparkling and gleaming, but did you know that it’s also crucial to your general health? It’s factual, poor oral hygiene can cause an arena of dental and medical problems such as gum disease, infection, heart disease, stroke, and even diabetes. That’s why dentists recommend that teeth be cleaned professionally twice a year.
At your regular appointment every six months, Dr. Sokhi will examine your mouth for signs of tooth decay or gum disease. Consistent and systematic checkups permit us to catch dental problems timely, or sometimes even prior to their development. Our specialized dental hygienists will use special instruments to remove the plaque and calculus from your teeth. During the check-up, Dr. Sokhi will also screen for oral cancer, assess your supporting bone structure, and assess your existing dental work. We offer a simple fluoride treatment that will efficiently strengthen your enamel and protect your teeth against decay and sensitivity. Your fluoride treatment will be personalized to meet your unique needs and circumstances. A fluoride treatment will intensely reduce your risk for tooth decay.
Your dental team will be able to detect oral health problems earlier than you can. Early treatment will reduce your potential for serious health problems down the road. When you combine consistent at-home oral hygiene combined with regular care at Davisville Family Dentistry, you’ll maintain a winning smile for life!
