Your mouth is a gateway to your body, and infections of the teeth and gums can spread to other parts of the body. This is why it’s so important to have regular preventative care visits to the dentist. At these visits for general dentistry George, UT, we will examine your mouth for any signs of infection or potential decay, and we will let you know if we see anything that we need to treat immediately. This helps us catch small issues before they become bigger issues that leave you needing more extensive treatment.
It’s much easier to treat a small cavity than it is to deal with advanced tooth decay. By visiting us regularly for cleanings and exams, we can diagnose cavities while they are small and easily treatable. This helps you keep more of your natural tooth structure intact and prevents the need for more invasive procedures such as root canals.
Regular cleanings are also important for the prevention of gum disease. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, and it can be seriously detrimental to your overall health if left untreated. During your cleaning, we will remove any plaque buildup from your teeth that you may be missing during your normal brushing routine. We will also review proper at-home dental care with you so that you can prevent future issues such as gingivitis.
If we notice signs of gum disease at your exam, we may recommend a deeper cleaning procedure known as scaling and root planing. We will numb your gums so that the procedure is painless and then will remove any tartar buildup on the roots of the teeth and smooth the roots so that bacteria cannot stick to them in the future. These treatments are highly successful at preventing the progression of gum disease, and you can return to your regular cleaning schedule once your gums have healed.
