One of the best ways to prevent larger dental issues is through regularly scheduled dental exams. By consistently checking the progression of your oral health, your dentist can see if there are any concerning changes and recommend treatments to make sure a small issue doesn’t progress and worsen.
Your dentist will examine all areas of your mouth including the teeth, tongue, gums, and lips. Your dentist will check for problems that may require more attention and can also screen for oral cancer.
Think you may need a tooth cleaning in Saskatoon? Even the most diligent person cannot remove the plaque and tartar that can build up on your teeth. A dental professional with the necessary tools conducting a teeth cleaning is necessary to clean your teeth properly.
The most commonly recommended time frame for dental checkups is every six months. However, some patients may require an exam and cleaning every four months instead. Patients with gum disease, a history of cavities, having a large amount of dental work, or with a sweet tooth should consider increasing the number of exams they get.
