Many people believe that they, as adults, don’t need to see the dentist as often. We all know that adults don’t get as many cavities as children because they take better care of their teeth: they brush and floss more regularly and eat less sugary foods that can cause damage to the teeth. However, regular dental care as an adult is important for your overall health. Routine examinations ensure that your mouth stays as healthy as possible.
In addition to examinations, we also perform professional cleanings on your teeth. We strive to clean off all the tartar and other buildup that you can’t reach with your toothbrush. We even get under the gums.
X-rays will show us how your teeth are doing underneath the surface. We can catch any problems early, often before they get painful. We also look for any signs of oral cancer. The sooner we catch it, the better off you will be.
Don’t forget about your oral health as you age!
Please contact us today at (512) 451-5183 to schedule an examination.
