Healthy teeth require upkeep, both at home and at the dentist's office. You know to brush and floss thoroughly and frequently at home, but bi-annual visits to the general dentistry office of Dr. Joseph Natoli of Natoli Dentistry in Turnersville, NJ, ensure your healthiest, most beautiful smile.
Why is a dentist visit every six months so important?
Making an appointment at our general dentistry office in Turnersville, NJ, twice a year is essential for the health, appearance, and longevity of your smile.
At your six-month appointment, your dentist will perform both an examination and deep cleaning of your teeth. During your exam, your dentist will look for any damage or decay and check the health of your gums. Your dentist will administer or schedule any necessary care to restore your dental health, such as filling a cavity or applying a crown to a chipped or cracked tooth.
During your professional cleaning, your dentist will use special tools to remove stubborn plaque and tartar before polishing your teeth to buff away stains. A thorough cleaning will reveal your brightest, shiniest teeth, and your dentist may apply a fluoride treatment to offer protection from cavities.
Visiting your dentist regularly helps detect dental problems before they worsen or spread, saving you from potential pain, expense, or prolonged dental health issues. With consistent care, you can put yourself on the path to lifelong dental health so you are at less risk of tooth loss, gum disease, or extensive damage. Your dentist may also perform x-rays to view the overall structure and health of your teeth.
Your dental visit is also a great time to review any cosmetic dentistry services you may be interested in, such as professional whitening, veneers, or dental implants.
