Your dental checkups are vital if you want a top-notch oral health and smile. They are also very important if you want to have a successful and problem-free orthodontic treatment with braces. This is because they deeply clean your teeth, gums and appliance and help you prevent major dental issues, like tooth decay and periodontal disease. So, our orthodontist, Dr. Mark Padilla, strongly encourages you to attend your checkups every six months. When you visit your dental office, you can expect the following things:
No. 1: Your dental team will welcome you to the office and do everything they can to make you feel comfortable. They will guide you to a dental chair where you will sit and lay the remainder of the appointment. If you have questions or concerns for your dental team, now is the time to address them.
No. 2: Your dental team will take dental X-rays of your teeth, tooth roots and underlying bones. Dental X-rays are detailed pictures that can show the health and strength of the entire smile. They can even show dental issues that aren’t visible to the naked eye.
No. 3: Your dental team will deeply clean your teeth, gums and braces. They will use special tools and techniques to remove the plaque, tartar and other dangerous substances from your smile, which will help you prevent major dental issues. They will also thoroughly examine your teeth and gums to make sure everything is in tip-top shape, and they will give you the tips you need to properly care for your smile.
