You may wonder why regular visits to the dentist are important. After all, you’re already doing what you’re supposed to do – brushing at regular dental checkupsleast twice a day, flossing, avoiding sugary foods and drinks. What else is there?

Plenty. If you live in the Kenosha, WI area and you are looking for a qualified, experienced dentist, consider contacting the office of Todd A. Armstrong, DDS, SC. They can not only provide the services you need but can explain why it’s so important.

Why are regular dental visits important?

First, while your regular dental hygiene habits go a long way to maintaining your dental and overall health, it still pays to have a dental professional perform regular checkups to ensure that everything is fine. In fact, the chances are that you will not know anything is wrong until the condition has advanced to a point where you need professional help. The dentist will not only check your teeth and gums for any potential issues, the dentist will also check other areas of your mouth, tongue, and throat for signs of other possible problems, including cancer.

During your regular dental checkup, your dentist will check for any problems such as cavities or plaque buildup. Plaque is the invisible, sticky bacteria that can build up and turn into tartar, a hard, discolored substance that stains your teeth.When you visit the dentist regularly, you will also receive a professional cleaning. Your brushing and flossing habits are important and good for you but you will not be able to remove tartar yourself. If plaque and tartar build up, they can cause other problems, including cavities, decay, and gum disease.

It is recommended by the American Dental Association that in addition to your personal oral hygiene program, you have regular dental checkups at least twice a year.
