Your dentist, Dr. David Wilhelm, strongly recommends keeping up with your dental checkups. This is because your checkups are very important for your oral health and smile. To help you understand why and to help you understand more about the checkups so you can make them a top priority, our dentist would like to share some dental checkup facts with you. Those facts 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 avoid dental issues and maintain strong teeth because they oftentimes involve a professional fluoride treatment. Fluoride strengthens and nourishes the tooth enamel.

-You should attend your checkups every six months.

-Dental checkups will also involve taking dental X-rays of your teeth, tooth roots and underlying bone. This will help our dentist ensure everything is in tip-top shape.
