Dr. Alex Bierman of Dental Arts of The Oaks in Thousand Oaks, CA, provides excellent dental care for the whole family. Teeth cleaning appointments twice a year are the basis of preventive care for patients of any age. These visits are important for your family because regular cleanings prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Regular visits keep your mouth healthy and your smile beautiful!
When plaque isn’t removed by brushing, it hardens and forms into tartar, which cannot be brushed away. During a professional tooth cleaning appointment, your dentist removes all plaque and tartar from the surfaces of the teeth, flosses your teeth, and examines your whole mouth. If plaque and tartar are left to build up on your teeth, the gums will be irritated by the bacteria and start to pull away from the teeth. Gum disease can lead to tooth loss if untreated, but regular cleanings keep plaque and tartar from building up on the gum line.
Another important part of regular dental visits is your dentist examining your mouth. This is an opportunity for your dentist to identify any problem areas in your mouth. You can adjust your hygiene routine to better care for these areas and hopefully prevent you from needing further dental work. An exam often includes oral cancer screening, your dentist examines your mouth and throat for any changes in tissue that could be early signs of cancer.
Don’t wait until you are in pain to go to the dentist, because that often means you will need more involved and more expensive dental work to save your smile. Regular appointments in Thousand Oaks, CA, mean less time and money spent at the dentist overall.
Visiting the dentist twice a year is an important investment in your oral health and your smile. If it’s been more than six months since you’ve had a teeth cleaning or exam, don’t hesitate to make an appointment. At Dental Arts of The Oaks, Dr. Bierman proudly serves patients to keep smiles healthy and beautiful.
