The Importance of Oral Hygiene
Bacteria building up in the mouth can lead to plaque, which if not addressed can eventually lead to periodontal disease, gingivitis, and other long term oral problems.
Proper oral hygiene can ensure that plaque doesn't build up. Problems such as tooth decay, infection, inflammation, and tooth loss can generally be avoided with regular dental exams and check-ups.
Why Dental Exams are Important
By having regular dental exams in Jacksonville, we're able to review the overall health of your teeth, mouth, and gums. This allows us to make suggestions to help you avoid gum disease and cavities.
It's easier, faster, and generally less expensive to fix oral issues immediately, rather than after they've had time to compound and get worse.
How Often Should You Have a Dental Exam?
At your first check-up, our expert team at Jeffrey Bilotti, DDS will be able to advise you how often you should have a check-up, although, for most people, twice a year is sufficient.
However, some factors may indicate you need a dental exam more frequently than twice a year. These include:
- how genetically susceptible you are to gum disease and tooth decay
- whether you smoke
- how many cavities you typically have
What To Expect From Dental Exams and Check-Ups
When you walk into our state of the art Jacksonville dental cleaning facility, you can be confident that your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned, and any stubborn and hard to remove tartar will be removed, using specialized dental cleaning equipment.
Any indications of gum disease or decay can also be identified. Some oral problems can only be identified by using an X-ray, which can also provide you a detailed overview of your overall health.
To help the process, be prepared to answer questions about whether you brush with fluoride toothpaste, how often you floss and brush, and any other dental care routines you have.
It all helps us to ensure your oral health is the best it can be.
