Now that December has arrived, many of our North Hollywood, CA, patients are preparing for the New Year. Before the holidays become hectic, we suggest scheduling a checkup and cleaning. An exam before the holidays help ensure you enjoy a healthy smile and enter 2019 with a better overall oral health!
Why Do We Need Checkups?
Along with the American Dental Association, we recommend a checkup every six months. During your visit, we carefully examine your teeth, gums, and oral structures with intraoral cameras and digital x-rays. We then obtain a detailed picture of your overall oral health and identify the early signs of trouble. Then, we can administer treatment before these issues grow more severe and threaten your smile. We often look for the indicators of cavities, gingivitis, gum disease, TMJ disorder, bruxism, and even oral cancer.
The Benefits of Cleaning
During the same visit we will also clean your teeth. While brushing and flossing control plaque buildup, only a dental cleaning can remove all the plaque and tartar that has already accumulated. The procedure takes only a few minutes and significantly reduces the risk of cavities and gum disease. Patients also enjoy brighter teeth and fresher breath. Completed every six months, the procedure helps you enjoy a healthy smile.
Start 2019 Right!
You can use your dental benefits to schedule a routine visit before the New Year, or in 2019 once your benefits become available.
