Sometimes people think it’s OK to skip their regular dental cleaning and exam appointments, especially if they think their smile is good enough without them. Well, even if the teeth and gums seem healthy and strong, it’s still important to visit your dentist. So, if you’re one of these people, please remember to visit Dr. Michael B. Wilhite every six months, no matter what. To explain why, our dental team has a few reasons to share with you.

The first reason is because your dental appointments provide a dental cleaning that can completely remove the tartar from your smile, which is something your oral hygiene routine cannot do. Tartar is a toxic substance that attacks the teeth and gums and promotes gum disease. If it’s not removed regularly, it can deteriorate the underlying bones and destroy the smile.

The second reason is because your dental appointments provide a fluoride treatment. This treatment involves using a natural mineral, fluoride, to boost the health and strength of your tooth enamel. This will help your teeth fight problems like tooth decay and enamel erosion. It’s important to expose your teeth to fluoride regularly.

The third reason is because your dental appointments allow our dental team to closely examine your smile and make sure everything is in top-notch condition. If it’s not, we’ll be able to treat your dental issues at the early stages of development, which can help you avoid severe pain and complications.
