Dental Checkups in Fort Bragg, California
Checkups are an important part of your oral health. Barring injury, your sturdy white teeth should remain healthy and intact for the rest of your life. But just like your car’s engine, which needs its regular oil & lube to keep purring smoothly, your mouth needs a thorough once-over as well. With dental checkups, we’ll review your dental history, clean your teeth, evaluate gum tissue, and/or screen for oral cancer.
This will ensure that teeth and gum problems are discovered early and nipped in the bud.
Some people naturally create more plaque and develop more cavities than others. We’ll let you know during your checkups, and help identify the potential “problem” areas. We can review your brushing technique, as well as the proper flossing, to ensure you are getting the most out of your at-home preventative care.
And it’s not just your teeth that are at risk. Now we know that gum disease is often part of related conditions such as chronic inflammation and repeated infections. This can, in turn, lead to a higher risk of stroke, heart attack, diabetes, and even premature, low birth-weight babies.
