The most ideal way to ensure your oral health is to schedule an appointment with a dental professional. Oral exams will be performed to check for any diseased gums, cavities or signs of decay.
Alongside the exam, a hygienist professional will remove plaque and tartar, with special instruments, while also assessing your bone structure and current overall dental health.
Proactively treating decay and gum diseases early will reduce your long-term potential for further health problems. Your team of dental professionals will likely be able to detect oral health problems much sooner than you can and can arrange a treatment plan for you on your appointment day.
