How Regular Visits To Your Dentist Can Improve Your Oral Health

Ajax Dental Centre is here in Ajax, ON, to keep you in great oral health. Dr. Saeid Jafarpour, Dr. Kevin Kwong, and Dr. Azza Elhaddad recommend dental appointments twice a year to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Keeping up with regular appointments is great for your oral and overall health. Regular teeth cleaning appointments are important because they prevent you from needing more involved and more expensive dental work.

If plaque isn't removed from your teeth by regular brushing, it hardens and forms into tartar. Tartar cannot be brushed away and must be removed by a dental professional. When tartar builds up on the gumline it irritates the gums and causes them to pull away from the teeth. Gum disease can lead to tooth loss, and it's best to be examined twice a year for signs of gum disease because it can develop before you have obvious symptoms like bleeding gums.

All plaque and tartar is removed by your dentist or hygienist at a cleaning appointment, and your whole mouth is flossed. Exams are important too because it is an opportunity for your dentist to check your whole mouth and identify potential problem areas. You can adjust your hygiene routine accordingly to keep your mouth healthy!

Investing in your smile by sticking to regular cleaning appointments pays off. When a tooth only has a little decay, it can be saved with a small filling that won't compromise the structure of the tooth. If you wait until you are in pain to see a dentist, it's possible there is already a significant amount of decay in a tooth. You could need a root canal or even a tooth replacement. When you see a dentist twice a year at our Ajax, ON, practice your dentist can find any decay before it compromises the whole tooth.

Keep up a great routine at home to protect your investment in your smile. Your dentist will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day. Dr. Saeid Jafarpour, Dr. Kevin Kwong, and Dr. Azza Elhaddad provide comprehensive dental care for the whole family at Ajax Dental Centre. Contact us for an appointment in Ajax, ON, (905) 426-8304.
