Although brushing your teeth at home is important, it is simply impossible to clean your teeth completely because tartar and plaque can exist in hard-to-reach spaces such as below your gum line. For this reason, Dr. Rentz will recommend that you come in every six months for a cleaning. Not only will this help to remove tartar, but it will also help whiten your teeth by removing stains. As part of the routine, we may also recommend having x-rays completed to check for cavities that may need to be treated during a further appointment. During your cleaning, you will also have an opportunity to ask about tips for improving your oral hygiene such as how to floss more effectively.
Routine dental exams are an integral part of maintaining proper oral hygiene and dental health. Regular exams enable Dr. Devin Rentz and his team to monitor your dental health and identify any developing issues.
Some dental issues, like gum disease, manifest no symptoms, and only an experienced professional can detect them. The Deer Run Dentistry has a team with the proper expertise to identify and diagnose tooth decay, periodontal disease, oral cancer, and other oral health issues.
If they detect any problems, they will offer appropriate interventions before these problems become bigger and more expensive.
