Why Routine Dental Care Is A Vital To Your Health
A trip to the dentist can be quite frightening and worrisome, but when it comes time for your annual checkup, backing out is by no means good for your oral health. Routine dental care allows for early detection of caries, also known as cavities, and will allow your dental provider to properly treat and care for your cavity. This can help you preserve the integrity of the tooth and avoid a more extensive treatment in the near future. Preservation of the tooth is a top priority to dental treatment at Dentistry at Rea Village conveniently located in Charlotte, NC.
Routine dental care, also known as preventative dentistry, plays a major role in your dental health. Preventative dentistry consists of your dental cleanings, maintenance, x-rays, oral cancer screenings, and your dental exams. Each piece of your dental care routine will help you to increase your optimal dental health. It’s recommended that you get dental cleanings at least twice a year. Your dental cleanings will be performed by a qualified dental hygienist and will include an exam of your gum tissue, dental cleanings, and if needed dental x-rays.
At Dentistry at Rea Village, our digital dental x-rays can reveal an infection or cyst that may be hidden at the base of the root of your tooth and serves as a helping hand in detecting cavities between adjacent teeth. Digital x-rays also allow our office with communicating to referring dentists in the Charlotte and surrounding areas.
