Brushing and flossing every day is important. But as great as a daily brushing and flossing routine is, regular checkups and professional cleanings will always been an essential part of keeping your smile healthy.
During a regular visit to VIP Dentistry in Scottsdale, Dr. Alex Martin has a chance to thoroughly inspect your smile for signs of gum disease, tooth decay, TMJ disorder and bruxism, and even oral cancer. Spotting conditions like these early takes a trained eye and always benefits the patient, because the sooner any of these are found the easier and more effective treatment can be.
But that’s not the only reason a regular checkup and professional cleaning are essential.
As recent research has shown, your smile and your overall health are connected. When oral health suffers, your general wellbeing can be affected as a result. A wide range of health conditions have been connected to poor oral health, including:
- Heart disease
- Pregnancy complications
- Diabetes complications
- Alzheimer’s disease
How long has it been since your last regular checkup and professional cleaning? If it’s been a year or more, call our Scottsdale office today to schedule an appointment with us. At VIP Dentistry, we recommend coming in for a regular checkup and professional cleaning every six months. With these visits, Dr. Martin and our team can help you stay on top of your oral health, keeping it strong and health throughout the year and beyond.
