Dental checkups are very important for your oral health and smile, and the more you know about them, the better. Today, our dentist, Dr. Aaron Wilkins, would like to tell you all about dental checkups so you can better understand them, which might help you make them a top priority. To do so, he is happy to share some dental checkup facts, which are:

-Dental checkups include two major parts: Your dental cleaning and dental exam. The dental cleaning will thoroughly clean your teeth, gums and mouth and the dental exam will allow our dentist to make sure your teeth are in top-notch condition.

-Dental checkups can help you prevent tooth decay and gum disease, which are two very dangerous and serious dental issues, because they remove the plaque and tartar from the teeth and gumline.

-Dental checkups can also help you have a top-notch smile because they oftentimes involve a professional fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that dives into your tooth enamel and strengthens it, making it a tough shell.

-It’s strongly recommended to attend your checkups every six months.

-Dental checkups will include dental X-rays to ensure that your teeth, tooth roots and underlying bone are strong and healthy. The dental X-rays are safe for you and your body.
