The Importance of Regular Cleanings and Examinations At Your Dentist

Has it been a while since you last visited your dentist for a routine cleaning or exam? If the answer is yes, you are part of a large group of people in the Middletown, Indiana, area who are neglecting this important service. Dr. Jonathan Titus welcomes you to Titus Dentistry for a cleaning and exam. For many, if they are not experiencing any kind of dental pain or there are no visible issues, they put off visits to the dentist. Dr. Titus highlights some reasons why this is a mistake.

Early Detection

When you visit your dentist regularly (twice a year is the recommended frequency), it lets them examine your dental situation and detect possible dental health issues. Early detection is vital so that various issues such as tooth decay and gum disease are not allowed to progress. When dental health problems are detected at an early stage, treatment will reflect this. Minor treatments such as a filling or deep cleaning may be all that are needed. But if allowed to progress, you will require more invasive treatments like gum grafts or root canals.

Cleaning where your Toothbrush can’t Reach

Even if you feel like you brush and floss efficiently, the truth is that some areas of your mouth just cannot be adequately cleaned at home. Bacteria and plaque buildup can eventually turn into damaging tartar. Regular cleanings allow the hygienists at Titus Dentistry to reach those areas and make sure all bacteria, plaque, and tartar are removed before they cause decay, gum disease, or worse.

Cancer Screening

A part of your regularly scheduled examinations is an oral cancer screening. When your dentist examines your mouth, they are not just looking for signs of tooth decay or gum disease. They are also looking for early signs of oral cancer. Early detection is your biggest weapon in any potential fight against oral cancer. Allowing it to go undetected could even prove fatal.
