The Importance of Dental Checkups


Though many people let their dental needs fall to the waist side, it is very important that you take care of your smile. Brushing and flossing are excellent ways of maintaining healthy oral care, but sometimes it takes a little more to make sure you mouth is where it should be in regards to health. Dr. Craig Vacek is able to make sure your smile is up to par by performing your dental checkups. The American Dental Association suggests that a person should get a dental checkup at least biannually. During your appointment, we will do an oral cancer screening and look for signs of periodontal (gum) disease. Dr. Vacek will inspect every single tooth, looking for any signs of deterioration. If we do find signs of oral cancer, periodontal disease, or any other kinds of abnormalities, we still tackle it right away and stop it in its tracks. If you have old dental work, like fillings onlays, or crowns, we will be able to restore them with tooth-colored fillings.

The checkup also includes our hygienists cleaning your teeth, removing bacteria that should not be there. When you come into our office every six months, we are able to tackle issues before they become a bigger deal. If you leave your smile unattended, what may be a simple fix now may be a much larger investment in the long run. If you are long overdue on your dental checkup, make an appointment, and we will be glad to help you along your journey to better oral health!
