Have you ever wondered what we can do for you, at Blaisdell Family Dentistry in Boise? We do a lot more than just fill cavities. We stress your dental health, and preventing little problems from getting out of hand.
A big part of that is seeing us for regular cleanings and checkups. We like to see our patients about every six months, although that can vary a little from one to the next. Those patients at high risk for an issue such as gum disease, for example, may need to come in more often.
Regular checkups also help:
- Cavity prevention. You may have the beginnings of a cavity but feel no symptoms. As with so many things, the earlier we diagnose and treat a cavity, the better. Treatment will be easier, and it can save a tooth that might be lost if the decay were discovered later.
- Control plaque and tartar. Plaque is that filmy layer that forms on the teeth from food debris. It’s easy to brush it away, which is why you should brush regularly. Plaque can harden into tarter; it tends to accumualte in those areas where brushing doesn’t reach. Even flossing may not get it all, but we will!
- Maintain overall health. By now the link between your dental health and general health is well-established. Poor dental hygiene is associated with conditeions like heart disease, diabetes, and even cancer.
