Why Regular Dental Checkups Are Important

To be honest, visiting the dentist for a teeth cleaning in Lincoln Square may not be the most exciting activity, but it’s one of the most important things you can do for yourself.

Reasons to Visit Us

If you’re thinking of skipping regular dental checkups because of the cost, or perhaps because of dental anxiety, we hope you’ll consider the risks involved in that decision. To help protect your dental health, here three reasons to see a dentist on a regular basis.

Plaque, Tartar and Cavities

No matter how diligent you are with daily brushing and flossing, there are small areas in your mouth that you’ll miss. When plaque builds up in your mouth, it solidifies over time and turns into tartar which is extremely difficult to remove. Accumulated plaque and tartar can lead to the erosion of your teeth and the formation of cavities.

Gum Disease

Plaque and tartar buildup not only cause cavities but can also erode your gum tissue. This happens due to an infection known as gingivitis. As it progresses, the tissue that attaches your gums to your teeth breaks down.

In its early stages, gingivitis leads to swelling, bleeding and soreness of your gums. Left unchecked, it can cause teeth to loosen and even fall out. Regular checkups and cleanings are essential to control gingivitis before it gets out of hand.

Underlying Problems

A crucial part of regular dental checkups is an x-ray of your teeth and jawbone to find and diagnose issues that may be invisible to the naked eye. Problems that can be detected only through x-ray imaging include impacted teeth, bone decay, cysts, or tumors. Finding problems like these as soon as possible is critical in order to treat them properly.

To avoid all of these issues, don’t wait to make your next appointment for a teeth cleaning in Lincoln Square. Call Cornerstone Dental of Lincoln Square today!
