My Teeth Look Fine, Do I Still Need a Dental Checkup?
You may brush and floss regularly but still have issues with your teeth and gums that aren’t visible on the surface. Sometimes, our teeth wear down unevenly due to teeth grinding at night (that we aren’t aware of since we are sleeping!). Or, plaque could be building up below the gumline and causing irritation in the gums. Cavities can sometimes form before we feel any pain. By getting a regular dental checkup, these problems can be spotted early and treated more easily.
What If Something is Found During a Dental Checkup?
If we do find something during a dental checkup, don’t worry. It is common to find issues during these visits. (After all, that’s why we are here!). Most dental concerns are easily treated. Many common oral health problems include cavities and gum disease. We will also let you know if we find any orthodontic issues, such as crooked or misaligned teeth that need correction.
