Dental Cleanings and Exams
Regular dental cleanings and exams are the foundations of a healthy mouth. Moreover, good oral health is key to overall health. Schedule bi-annual or more frequent cleanings for the long-term care of your teeth and gums. Most importantly, regular check-ups and a comprehensive dental care routine prevent decay, infection, inflammation, and tooth loss.
Regularly Scheduled Mouth Maintenance
Removing plaque and checking for cavities keep patients ahead of painful problems. Dental exams often include fluoride, sealants, x rays, and other standards for dental hygiene. The friendly faces of Houlik Family Dentistry work efficiently and gently to clean your teeth and protect your mouth.
Studies show that oral hygiene is closely connected to your overall health. As a result, medical research links oral infections to serious diseases, including diabetes and heart disease. Therefore, taking care of your teeth and gums now will help you preserve and protect your natural teeth for years to come. Avoid expensive dental restoration work down the road with regular maintenance on your mouth. If it is not removed, bacteria in the mouth hardens and leads to gingivitis or periodontal disease.
See You Every Six Months
The American Dental Association recommends regular dental cleanings and exams to prevent tooth loss. Patients are screened for infection, gum disease, decay, and cancer during each dental exam. Early detection in these areas creates better treatment outcomes.
On average, dental cleanings and exams are recommended every six months. However, family history and the specifics of your oral health may change those recommendations. Dr. Houlik and the team at Houlik Family Dentistry create personalized plans for your oral health to ensure lifelong wellness. Establish a long-term relationship with the friendly and experienced team at Houlik Family Dentistry-don’t avoid the dentist for fear of pain and financial hardship.
