When you visit the dentist for a checkup, you know that you’re not just there to have your teeth cleaned.
You also get an oral exam and sometimes dental X-rays so we can detect issues with your teeth and gums because treating problems like tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease is more successful in the early stages.
But that doesn’t mean you won’t experience dental problems in between your routine hygiene appointments. When you do, it’s important to call us for the soonest available appointment so we can keep your smile in great shape.
