Top 3 Reasons to Visit the Dentist Regularly
Many patients know that they should visit the dentist regularly, but they may not fully understand what happens at these visits. The top 3 reasons why patients should make dental appointments once or twice each year include:
Cleaner Teeth and Gums
Our dental hygienists use specialized dental tools to ensure that patients get a deep clean. Scaling and root planings are two essential cleaning treatments that remove bacteria from the teeth and gums. Our hygienists remove plaque and tartar from and beneath the gums during scaling treatment. Root planing treatment removes hardened bacteria from the tooth roots. These treatments minimize bacteria and help prevent harmful symptoms of gum disease.
Preventative Screenings Against Disease
Dr. Kalochie offers oral cancer and gum disease screenings at routine visits. Common signs of oral cancer include white or red patches or chronic mouth ulcers. Dr. Kalochie also uses the VELscope, a scanner that illuminates precancerous and cancerous lesions in the mouth. Gum disease, also known as periodontitis, is a widespread yet damaging dental problem. Dr. Kalochie looks for swollen, bleeding, red, or irritated gums to screen for gum disease. With regular oral health care, we can reverse these early signs of gum disease.
Detecting Dental Problems
Dr. Kalochie will perform a comprehensive diagnostic examination to find oral health issues. She evaluates the teeth, gums, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ). In addition, Dr. Kalochie or a member of her team will take dental x-rays or measure the bite’s force with carbon paper and a Tekscan. If Dr. Kalochie finds any problems, she will create a customized treatment plan. She will pick the proper treatment to address her patient’s problems head-on. Dr. Kalochie will also carefully explain her treatment plan to her patients and why she recommends it to meet their oral health needs.
