Preventive dentistry is the cornerstone of a healthy, beautiful smile. So, if you brush and floss your teeth diligently at home, never stop practicing these good oral habits because they prevent many oral problems, including bad breath, decay, and infections.
However, consistently maintaining optimal dental care at home is just part of preventive dental care. To complete your oral hygiene regimen, you must visit your dentist every six months for routine dental exams and cleanings. Sonoma Smiles in Rohnert Park, California, proudly offers regular dental exams and cleanings to remove yellow plaque from teeth and keep your smile issue-free. So, whether you are up to date with your dental appointments or haven’t seen a dentist in years, schedule an appointment with Dr. Wayne Sutton to keep your smile on a healthy track.
Even if you think your oral health is in good condition, you must schedule an appointment with a dentist at least twice annually. Dental exams allow us to detect oral problems that may have escaped your notice at home.
During your dental exam, we inspect your mouth for signs of gum disease, decay, TMJ pain, oral cancer, and other oral problems. We also use dental X-rays to unearth issues like bone loss and impacted teeth not visible to the naked eye.
After your dental exam, our dentist will provide a treatment plan to restore your oral health. Typically, your treatments may include dental crowns, tooth fillings, periodontal care, or extractions, depending on the oral condition at hand.
If we don’t find significant issues in your smile, it’s time to clean your teeth professionally. The dentist or dental hygienist uses special tools and skills to scrape every surface of your teeth to remove built-in plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas in your mouth. Finally, we polish your teeth with gritty toothpaste to leave them feeling and looking sparkly clean.
Regular dental exams and cleanings, alongside good oral hygiene at home, can go a long way in keeping your smile issue-free.
So, if you haven’t seen a dentist in the last six months, call (707) 868-0666 and let the experts at Sonoma Smiles help you maintain a healthy, radiant smile.
