The music swells as you pedal faster on the stationary bike. As the sweat drips into your eyes, you stand up along with the entire class. Three days on the bake can go a long way in keeping you healthy and trim. It’s much easier to keep your weight down than it is to lose it. The same logic can also work for your teeth’s health. Your dentist in Weymouth, MA from Columbian Square Dental let you to know what regular visits to their office can do for you.
Dental Cleanings and You
You probably first started going to the dentist when you were very young. You knew it was good for you, and very similar to seeing your pediatrician. As you’ve gotten older, you inevitably got busier. More and more time starts to slip by between visits to your dentist. You start to ask why you even need to go at all. You brush your teeth every day and you aren’t feeling any discomfort. Isn’t that enough? Unfortunately, your home dental care routine is not enough to keep your teeth completely healthy. Your teeth are very complex structures that have many tiny services on them to facilitate chewing. This is especially true when talking about the back teeth. You simply are not able to clean every area of your mouth with your brush and floss. These problem areas are often where tooth decay can start unnoticed. The tools the team at Columbian Square Dental use enable them to clean these areas and leave you in good shape between visits. This is also when they provide you with a complete fluoride treatment that helps protect your teeth from the buildup of plaque and bacteria.
If you were to look inside your mouth using a mirror right now, do you think you would see everything a dentist would? Probably not. Issues such as tooth decay and gum disease are not easy to spot with an untrained eye in their early stages. Check-ups enable your family dentist in Weymouth, MA to spot these issues before they can become bigger ones in the future. This can save you discomfort and time in the dentist’s chair. Routine check-ups are also when we provide oral cancer screenings, as early detection is one of the keys to successful treatment. We only recommend you that get a check-up twice a year, and those two days can help keep your smile healthy for the entire year.
If you want to know more about what we can do for you at the office, or how to keep your teeth clean between visits, please feel free to give us a call. Drs. Herr, Luccio, and Kerr are more than happy to answer any of your questions. We want to keep you smiling throughout the whole year, so we hope you’ll come see us soon.
