Some people are reluctant to visit their dentist unless they have obvious symptoms of an oral health problem. However, we recommend a more proactive approach. When you choose to attend regular dental checkups and cleanings, you can prevent most problems in your teeth and gums . These simple appointments are essential for maintaining a clean, fresh, and healthy mouth! If it has been more than six months since your last cleaning and checkup, we encourage you to contact our Dayton team to request an appointment.

Why Are Regular Dental Checkups & Cleanings Important?

Patient and dentist reviewing X-ray together

Most experts agree that everyone should attend a cleaning and checkup every six months because these routine visits can serve a number of important purposes:

  • Cleanings remove plaque and tartar (a hardened form of plaque that cannot be removed with at-home dental hygiene instruments).
  • Our team can coach you to help you take better care of your smile on a daily basis.
  • We can diagnose oral health issues early on . This may prevent painful and expensive emergencies in the future.

It is also worth noting that most dental insurance plans completely cover the cost of two cleanings and checkups each year — you might be able to enjoy a fresh and healthy smile for nothing out of pocket!

What to Expect During a Dental Checkup

During the checkup portion of your appointment, our team will:

  • Visually examine your gums, teeth, bite, and any existing dental restorations or prosthetics that you have.
  • Use a dental probe and/or our advanced cavity detection system to look for signs of decay.
  • Chart your periodontal health by measuring the distance between each tooth and the adjacent gum tissue.
  • Perform a thorough oral cancer screening.
  • Take X-rays to look for issues that are not visible to the naked eye (we usually recommend X-rays once per year).
  • Update and review your medical history in order to understand any circumstances that may have an effect on your oral health.
  • Provide personalized tips and advice to help you maintain a clean and healthy smile at home.

Even if you stick to great oral hygiene habits at home, a professional cleaning can still be beneficial. During this portion of your appointment, your hygienist will use special instruments to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, thereby reducing your risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath. They will also thoroughly floss your teeth and polish them in order to clear away minor surface stains. You may feel some pressure as your hygienist works, but overall, the experience should be relatively easy and comfortable, especially if you have been diligent about attending cleanings in the past.
