Brushing and flossing are two of the best things you can do for your smile, but unfortunately, they simply aren’t enough to ward off all potential dental conditions.
The teeth are very complicated structures with surfaces your brush and floss simply aren’t able to clean. Plaque can gather on these surfaces and eventually cause a whole host of issues, such as cavities and gum disease. That’s why it’s important for you and your family to come in for checkups and cleanings even if everyone consistently brushes their teeth.
At a standard preventive appointment, we’ll start by performing a dental cleaning that will be able to target those trouble spots in your mouth, and then Dr. Sara Curcio will perform a thorough oral exam. By coming in for these appointments regularly, we’ll be able to keep your smile completely clean, and it will also give Dr. Curcio the chance to catch any dental conditions you have early and treat them quickly, thus preserving more of your teeth over time.
When was the last time you had a checkup and cleaning? If you can’t remember, that means it’s time to come see us here at South Windsor Dental! To schedule an appointment, simply contact our friendly team today.
