The American Dental Association recommends that most people schedule an appointment for a check up and professional dental cleaningevery six months in order to prevent or lower the risk of common problems like tooth decay and gum (periodontal) disease. But despite heightened awareness of the dangers of gum disease and the risks of tooth loss, many adults struggle to get to the dentist until something goes wrong. But if an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure as the old saying goes, taking the time to schedule regular dental appointments can save a significant amount of time and money in the long run in additional dental work. Dr. Reina Garcia, a family dentist in Sudbury, MA, offers general and cosmetic dentistry services for the entire family.
Preventive Dentistry in Sudbury, MA
Even if you brush and floss regularly, regular professional dental care is still an important part of a comprehensive oral healthcare routine. During your appointment, the dentist will check your gums for pockets, gum recession, screen for oral cancer and tooth decay, and perform a deep clean between the teeth to eliminate the plaque and tartar buildup that your toothbrush may leave behind.
