Six month checkups are important. Not only do they make it possible for your dentist to catch small but important changes in the health of your smile, they can also support your overall health. This second aspect is something we’ll go over in greater detail next month. For now, we’d just like to focus on that first reason and explain what you can expect from your regular checkup.
It takes time for cavities and gum disease to develop. In both cases, the symptoms may be too small for you to notice. But a trained eye knows what to look for. Following a thorough oral exam, Dr. Alex Martin can help you diagnose common conditions early, before they have a chance to develop. That means you can look forward to a less invasive, more comfortable treatment that helps you support your smile. What’s more, with a professional cleaning, our Scottsdale team can help you eliminate bacteria and plaque, which promote these common conditions.
To give your smile extra protection, we can also provide you with fluoride treatments. Fluoride strengthens teeth by attracting important minerals and nutrients. With just a quick rinse, we can give your smile an added boost as you prepare to leave our office.
