The American Dental Association and the dentists at Salud Family Dental Center recommend you come back every six months. Regular dental checkups are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth, gums and your overall health.
Your dentist will likely check your teeth for tooth decay and evaluate the health of your gums. Your dentist or dental hygienist will then clean your teeth. Your dentist will pay special attention to plaque and tartar.
The dental exam can catch problems early they are much easier and less expensive to treat. The more your dentist knows about your overall health, the more effective they can be in addressing your oral health care needs.
