Your Dental Checkup Might Include Preventive Treatments

Posted .

Brushing your teeth each morning and night as well as remembering to floss once each day helps remove bacterial deposits from your mouth. With consistent application your daily routine can significantly reduce your chances of suffering from cavities and gum disease.

You also need to have a dental checkup performed twice a year by a dentist like Dr. Klaudia Falkovsky or Dr. Andrew Falkovsky. The outpatient appointment is designed to thoroughly clean and polish your teeth, while also monitoring your mouth for any early signs of an oral health problem. It also includes a basic screening for early signs of oral and pharyngeal cancer.

If our dentist finds a problem area, they will present you with treatment options. Sometimes a simple preventive treatment can be applied at the end of the dental checkup to help address a minor issue before it worsens.

If there are any concerns about the strength of your tooth enamel our dentist might recommend a fluoride treatment. The concentrated fluoride is designed to bolster the mineral density of your tooth enamel to help prevent problems with tooth decay and tooth sensitivity.

Our dentist might also provide you with some simple tips to help maximize your daily routine. Something as simple as remembering to floss along the gumline and behind your rear molars can help reduce your chances of suffering future problems with your tooth enamel.
