Don’t Delay Regular Dental Examinations

How visiting your Delta Dental dentist in Livermore, CA, regularly can help you maintain a healthy smile

Your smile is precious, and regular dental examinations can help you take great care of your smile. In addition to regular brushing and flossing, regular dental examinations can help prevent tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other dental problems which can take away your smile.

Dr. Todd Kamena at Murrieta Dental Care in Livermore, CA, offers a wide range of dental services, including regular dental examinations to help you maintain a healthy smile.

So, how often should you visit your dentist? That depends on the overall health of your smile. If your smile is generally healthy, you should visit your dentist every 6 to 12 months for a dental examination and x-rays. If you have had a history of tooth decay, you may need to come in more often.

You should also visit your dental hygienist every 6 to 12 months for professional teeth cleaning. If you have a history of gum disease or periodontal disease, you may need to come in every 3 to 4 months to maintain the health of your mouth.

There are many reasons why you shouldn’t delay your dental examinations. Did you know that:

  • If your mouth is healthy, it can lower your risk of having a stroke, developing diabetes, or developing heart disease?
  • If tooth decay goes untreated, you may develop a dental abscess that needs a root canal?
  • If a dental abscess goes untreated, you may lose your tooth or cause an infection in other areas of your face or head?

Regular dental visits can do a lot to prevent dental disease and save your smile. Your dentist and dental hygienist want to help you enjoy a healthy smile for life. Using state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and techniques, your smile is in good hands with Dr. Kamena, your Delta Dental dentist at Murrieta Dental Care.
