Having regular visits to the dentist are essential for maintaining overall good oral health. Part of the preventive dental services we offer, in order to prevent cavities and keep your teeth and gums healthy, are routine cleanings, X-rays, and exams. This source of care, involving the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of dental conditions, is typically what patients require for their dental needs. It is recommended you should see your dentist every six months, in order to prevent tooth loss, freshen your breath, and sustain proper oral hygiene. Attending checkups will help prevent problems from developing in the future and will improve your oral health.
