Why Your Family Dentist Recommends Regular Checkups

Do you know why your dentist at Horizon Family Dentistry asks you to schedule a regular checkup and dental cleaning every six months? Keeping your teeth and gums healthy and clean depends on consistent dental care, even at home between dental exams. If you have dental problems, your dentist may recommend you visit more often.

What Happens during Your Regular Dentist’s Visit?

Your dentist will look for more than tooth decay during a complete dental checkup. In addition to checking for unhealthy gums or periodontal disease, a thorough oral exam looks for signs of vitamin deficiencies, oral cancer and diabetes.

Even your bite and movement of your lower jaw (the TMJ) are important in preserving your teeth and avoiding pain. All in all, oral health is directly related to our overall well-being.

As part of our dental services in Lindsay, your dentist at Horizon Family Dentistry will perform a thorough dental examination, including:

  • Checking for loose or broken teeth
  • Looking for damaged fillings or evidence of tooth decay
  • Examining the gums for signs of gum disease or tissue loss
  • Examining your tongue and tissues inside your mouth
  • Checking your bite and contact between your teeth
  • Evaluating any dental appliance you might have
  • Taking X-rays
  • Evaluating your oral health and planning dental care

Dental Cleanings in Lindsay & Havelock

During the final part of your routine visit to Horizon Family Dentistry, our registered dental hygienist cleans your teeth and gums using these methods:

  • Checking the cleanliness of your teeth and gums
  • Removing any plaque and tartar
  • Polishing your teeth
  • Flossing between your teeth
  • Reviewing recommended brushing and flossing techniques

We will pay special attention to plaque and tartar. This is because plaque and tartar can build up in a very short time if you don’t brush and floss between dental visits. If not removed, soft plaque can harden on the teeth and irritate the gum tissue, which can lead to gum disease and tooth loss.

When scheduling your semi-annual dental services in Lindsay at Horizon Family Dentistry, remember that regular dental cleaning and professional tooth polishing also help fight stains from food, coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco.
