The Importance and Benefits of Regular Dental Check Ups
Checkups are an essential part of preventive dentistry, allowing you to keep your teeth clean and healthy much longer. For this reason, we recommend dental check ups every six (6) months.
Some advantages of regular dental checkups include:
- Regular dental care and cleaning can keep away gum disease.
- Being seen for regular dental hygiene visits can prevent halitosis (bad breath)
- Dental checkups can help you keep your teeth healthier longer, which may prevent cavities and tooth loss.
