Everyone knows to visit the dentist twice a year for routine dental appointments. But it’s also important to maintain good oral hygiene at home. Brushing and flossing your teeth daily as well as visiting the dentist regularly are the best methods of preventative dental care. Dr. Carter Perkins treats patients who require routine cleanings or need to treat more complicated dental concerns. Dr. Perkins emphasizes the importance of scheduling biannual dental visits for thoroughly clean and healthy teeth and gums. Learn more about why it is important to maintain your oral health below:
Routine Dental Examinations
Dr. Perkins and his dental team are trained to identify potential problems that the average person wouldn’t be able to spot. Our dental hygienists provide professional cleaning that can remove any hardened plaque buildup from your teeth that brushing alone cannot remove. When tartar builds up on the teeth, tooth decay and gum disease may develop. Decay and disease can lead to cavities, irritated gums, and even tooth loss. Biannual visits can prevent dental problems from developing into serious concerns.
Repairing Your Smile
If you chip or break a tooth, we can provide emergency dental care to fix your smile. If you accidently knock out a tooth, we may be able to replace it within an hour of its loss. Otherwise, the tooth can be replaced with a stable permanent dental implant. Porcelain veneers, tooth bonding, and dental restorations are some of the most common treatments that target dental emergencies. Dr. Perkins helps determine the best dental treatments to keep patient’s teeth healthy and bright. Visiting the dentist for emergency care as soon as possible ensures that your teeth and gums remain healthy.
