Why Dental Check-Ups Matter

If you want to keep your body healthy, you have an annual physical with your doctor. If you want to keep your mouth healthy, you attend an annual check-up with your dentist.

Recently, research has proven a direct link between visiting the dentist and keeping your natural teeth.

In fact, a Gallup Poll released in 2014 found that the states with the highest percentage of dental visits also had the lowest percentage of adult tooth loss. In Connecticut, for example, where 74% of adults reported visiting the dentist in the past year, the rate of tooth loss was only 9%. In West Virginia, on the other hand, where only 54% of adults visited the dentist, the rate of tooth loss was a stunning 37%.

The message is clear: visiting the dentist is the best way to protect your natural teeth and preserve your oral health. It’s also the simplest path to a gleaming, beautiful smile!

What to Expect During Your Dental Check-Up

Here at Orange Premier Dental, we want your dental check-up to be a pleasant experience. Our skilled dental staff will work with you to overcome any anxiety you may be feeling, and we will protect your comfort throughout the process. That said, dental check-ups are generally fast, painless appointments with two primary components:

The Exam

During your dental check-up, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, gums, and teeth. The dentist will check your teeth for plaque and tartar buildup and signs of cavities. Depending on how long it’s been since your last check-up, your dentist may also take X-rays to check for cavities between the teeth. The dentist will also check your gums for signs of recession, disease, or infection.

The Cleaning

Once the exam is complete, your dentist will clean your teeth. This critical step removes all the plaque and tartar buildup you cannot remove with a toothbrush and floss. The dentist will use special tools to remove buildup from the dental surface. They will also floss between your teeth thoroughly and may polish your teeth to remove surface stains. The result is a gleaming smile that looks and feels great.

Don’t Wait for Dental Care: Schedule Your Check-Up Today

Life is busy, and it’s easy to put off your routine dental check-up, assuming you’ll just get to it later. Unfortunately, this opens the door to a host of oral health issues, including dental decay, cavities, plaque buildup, gum disease, and bad breath, to name a few.

Fortunately, it’s easy to prevent those conditions by seeing your Orange, CA, dentist regularly. Routine check-ups keep your teeth clean and beautiful and allow you to spot signs of dental decay before they become a major problem.
