Why Do I Need Dental Checkups?

Many of our patients don’t fully understand the benefits of regular visits to our office for teeth cleanings. They follow the recommended “twice a day” rules for brushing and flossing and think that is enough. However, coming in for professional cleanings offers many additional benefits that go deeper and do more to enhance your smile:

  • Thorough Examinations: Our fully trained dental professionals do not just clean your teeth. They use their extensive training to examine every single one for any signs of decay, tartar build-up, recidivism in your gums, or other conditions. By catching any of these issues early, they can make helpful recommendations about next steps or even fix them right there during your visit.
  • Deeper Cleanings: Specially designed dental tools go where average toothbrushes and floss cannot. They have the power to eradicate short and long-term tartar build-up in hard to reach spaces and prevent more severe decay and even tooth loss from taking place.
  • Dental Work Referrals: When you come in for a cleaning, our dentists can predict what will happen with your teeth. This can range from crowding that may require wisdom tooth removal to crooked teeth straightening that may necessitate braces. Our certified dental experts know the telltale signs and can give you their professional opinion for optimal oral health.

What to Expect During Your Dental Checkup

During your visit to Community Roots Dentistry, there are generally two phases you will experience throughout your dental hygiene cleaning:

  • Dental Checkup: During this phase of your checkup, our dental experts will check your teeth for cavities. This could include taking x-rays to check for decay and voids between your teeth. We also check for plaque and tartar on your teeth and the condition of your gums. When you have healthy gums, the spaces between gums and teeth will be shallow. We use specialized tools to check for deeper recesses in your gums, which can indicate the beginnings of gum disease.
  • Teeth Cleaning: The second phase of the checkup is teeth cleaning. Using specialized dental tools and professional techniques, we scrape plaque and tartar from your teeth. Plaque is a sticky, clear film of bacteria that can harden into tartar and cause oral diseases. Tartar cannot be removed simply by brushing and flossing alone. You must come in to see us so we can remove it for you. Once the plaque and tartar are removed, a member of our dental staff will floss your teeth and polish them to remove any surface stains.

Attractive Financing Options

Community Roots Dentistry strives to make your visit to us as easy as possible. That is why we accept most major forms of health insurance and offer attractive financing options. Our practice also submits all insurance forms for you, so you recover the most value from your dental benefits.
