The Importance of Regular Comprehensive Dental Examinations

The American Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist every six months. It’s incredibly important for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums to make regular dental visits as recommended. Of course, it’s always important that in between these visits you’re working to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. Park Slope Dentistry, a family dental office in Brooklyn, New York emphasizes the importance of regular comprehensive exams to help ensure your teeth and gums are dazzling, healthy, and happy.

Preventive dentistry is truly the foundation for complete oral health, and the first step in preventing oral problems is to execute discipline when it comes to dental maintenance and regular exams. Daily and regular brushing and flossing habits are necessary for basic maintenance, but regular visits to the dentist are crucial and strongly recommended for your teeth’s health.  When you schedule a comprehensive dental exam in our Brooklyn dental office, you can expect the following treatment and more:

  • Examination of gums to find any signs of gum disease or changes in the gums covering the teeth.
  • Checking for loose or broken teeth.
  • Looking at the tissues inside of the mouth.
