Understanding the importance of routine dental examinations and cleanings
- Posted on: Feb 15 2019
The team of Golden Dental Solutions in Golden, Colorado works with patients on a routine basis to provide preventative care. Preventative dental care is at the forefront of oral health and wellness. Without daily care and routine visits to the dentist, patients are putting their smiles at risk for a myriad of concerns including the development of periodontal disease and tooth decay. This is why having regular visits and diagnostic examinations with Drs. Nancy E. Gill and Dallas D. Kenson are so important.
Why visit the dentist regularly?
Many patients take a more “reactive” approach to their dental care. They may not visit their dentist for many years, but when a problem arises, they make the call and schedule their appointment. This is not the best way to go about maintaining oral health and wellness. Instead, patients should be visiting their dentist every six months for a routine evaluation. Routine evaluations include not only an examination which may include x-rays, but a deep cleaning of the smile. During this time, patients can target areas of the smile that may not have been properly cleaned at home and ask their dentist questions about how to care for their smile. With x-rays and an evaluation, the dentist will also have the opportunity to check for the early signs of damaging conditions such as periodontal disease and tooth decay. These can impact the smile, and if left untreated in the earlier stages, can become extremely detrimental to the smile—while also costing patients much more in the long run to treat than regular visits to the dental chair.
