Regular dental checkups help prevent dental problems by allowing for early detection and treatment of issues such as cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. Professional cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing and flossing can’t reach. Regular visits also provide an opportunity to discuss any concerns or changes in your oral health with your dentist. Consistent checkups ensure your dental work remains in good condition and can extend the lifespan of restorations like crowns and veneers.
