Your dental cleaning and exam appointments are very important for a top-notch oral health and smile. If you don’t attend your checkup every six months, your teeth and gums could be in danger. Your dentist, Dr. Denver Palmer, strongly encourages attending your checkups because they can help you in a myriad of ways, like:

-They can prevent cavities. Cavities are very big enemies for the teeth, especially because they cause severe dental pain and discomfort and the treatment isn’t always the most convenient. The cleanings can prevent cavities because they remove the harmful plaque that attacks the chompers. They also strengthen the smile with a fluoride treatment, which can help the enamel resist cavity threats.

-They can stop tooth loss. This is because the cleaning helps prevent gum disease, and gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss. The cleaning removes the tartar (hardened plaque) from the teeth and gums before it can deteriorate the underlying bone and loosen the teeth.

-They can brighten your smile. After the cleaning techniques, our dental team will polish the front surfaces of your teeth to make them brighter. The treatment will remove the surface stains that take the whiteness out of your teeth.
