Annual dental exams are a crucial part of your oral health. Here are three reasons you should be getting regular dental exams

  • In later years, most teeth that are lost are a direct result of gum disease. Help prevent the disease from even starting with frequent professional cleanings and examinations. Using a special probe that tests the depth of your gums around the tooth, your dentist can detect gum disease in its earliest stages.
  • Tooth decay can act quickly. If left untreated, you can lose an entire tooth in the course of just one year. Annual exams allow your dentist to catch decay before it destroys your tooth.
  • Dental exams can stop developing problems in their tracks, preventing more serious issue from forming. For example, if a hole is beginning to form under your enamel, a dentist can simply insert a temporary filling to prevent food accumulation.
