Routine Dental Care
Importance of a Regular Dental Check Up at Yuma Dental
A regular dental check up is essential for maintaining healthy teeth and gums while preventing more serious dental issues. Visiting Yuma Dental for a dental check up every 6 months is the best way to ensure your smile is healthy and beautiful.
What Does a Routine Dental Exam Involve?
Your routine dental exam at Yuma Dental includes a thorough cleaning of your teeth to remove potentially harmful materials, and our dental specialist will carefully examine your teeth and gums. Depending on your dental history, a dental exam may include:
- Dental x-ray using the latest dental x-ray equipment technology
- Complete inspection of your teeth, gums and bite
- Examination of your neck and head to detect issues that could impact your oral and overall health
- Performing routine dental work and scheduling a time to provide more complex dental treatments if necessary
Why Do I Need Regular Teeth Cleaning?
A professional teeth cleaning removes tarter, a harmful byproduct of plaque that accumulates on your teeth over time even if you brush and floss regularly. Tarter can lead to gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums that can cause tooth loss, as well as other types of oral infections.
You may not know that a regular teeth cleaning is also important for maintaining good overall health. Oral infections and bacteria can enter your bloodstream and be carried throughout your entire body. A professional teeth cleaning prevents the spread of bacteria and infections, making it an essential part of a comprehensive health maintenance program.
At Yuma Dental, our skilled professional teeth cleaning specialists have the expertise and state-of-the-art equipment to remove tarter before it can cause problems with your oral and overall health.
Other Health Benefits of a Dental Check Up at Yuma Dental
You should also be aware that many medical conditions exhibit symptoms inside your mouth. These conditions include osteoporosis, vitamin deficiencies, diabetes and even oral cancer. A dental exam by a Yuma Dental professional can detect symptoms of these conditions, and we will inform you if additional treatment from a physician is in your best interest.
Fortunately, with early detection, many of these issues can be treated effectively before they can do serious harm to your health. A regular dental checkup can give you the peace of mind of knowing you’re taking appropriate measures to ensure your long-term health.
Optional Esthetic Treatment
Not happy with your smile? In addition to routine dental exams to help you maintain healthy teeth and gums, Yuma Dental offers optional esthetic treatment. Consider teeth-whitening and bleaching to make your smile sparkle. We also offer Invisalign treatment to correct crooked teeth without using unattractive metal braces.
