If you are regular with your dental cleaning and exams, you can avoid

  1. Tooth Decay
  2. Gum Disease
  3. Tooth Loss
  4. Oral Cancer

And you can maintain good overall oral health!

What’s Included in your Regular Dental Cleaning and Exam

Diagnosis of your dental issue at an early stage is very important. Dentists in Castle Rock emphasize to their patients the need for regular dental exams, which allows them to assess and detect issues early on and provide effective treatments for your dental problems to maintain your overall health and wellbeing.  

During a regular dental exam, Castle Rock dentists evaluate your overall oral health, check for any cavities or gum disease, clean your teeth if needed and check for any abnormalities or issues. They may take x-rays or conduct tests to evaluate your teeth, jaw, bite, and your overall oral health.

Our dentists may discuss your diet routine and oral hygiene habits that can help you improve and maintain your dental and overall health.

What Happens If You Miss a Dental Appointment

If you miss your dental appointments, the bacteria in your teeth will cause plaque, tartar, cavities, and gum disease. Dental professionals can spot your cavities early on and treat them before they worsen, saving you from invasive treatments like root canals. If they are left untreated, they can eventually lead to tooth decay, infections or if the condition worsens, they may also lead to loss of teeth.
