If so, have you ever wondered why it’s so important to see the dentist every six months?

From oral health maintenance to serious disease prevention, there are a lot of reasons to keep your semi-annual visits on your calendar.

Open Wide And Relax

So what do we look for when we examine your pearly whites? During typical checkups we examine the overall health of your teeth and gums, looking for signs of tooth decay, gum disease and checking up on the condition of existing dental work.  X-rays may also be taken to ensure the health of the roots of your teeth, and to reveal things we cannot see.

Once we examine your mouth and teeth, it’s cleaning time. We do so by:

  • Do an overall cleanliness check
  • Remove plaque and tartar
  • Polish your teeth
  • Floss between your teeth

After your teeth are cleaned, we’ll talk about recommendations for keeping your teeth and gums healthy until your next regular visit.

More Than Just The Mouth

While a clean and vibrant smile is a definite confidence booster, it can also promote sound overall health. Bacteria from untreated gum disease can spread to other parts of the body and increase the risk of heart disease and other serious conditions.

We can also spot. Things such as vitamin deficiencies, osteoporosis and even diabetes can present symptoms in our mouths.

Prevention Is The Best Cure

Regular dental visits not only keep our teeth and gums clean but they can help prevent against more serious issues to keep your smile healthy between checkups.

Healthcare For The Whole Family

At Grove Smiles Dentistry we are focused on the latest treatments to create healthy and resilient smiles. In addition to helping your smile look and feel its best, we’re committed to your overall health.

We specialize in total family dental healthcare and want to make sure you and your family remain as healthy as possible when you visit us!

For Your Health,

Dr. Stephen J. Parr D.D.S.
