Batteries, Check! Smoke detectors, Check! Teeth, CHECK!

Batteries, Check! Smoke detectors, Check! Teeth, CHECK! 

You water the garden three times a week, you change your car’s oil every three months, and you replace the batteries in your smoke detectors once a year. Your teeth need to see your dentist on a regular schedule, too.

While daily oral hygiene habits are essential to good oral health, professional dental cleanings at Centers for Healing will insure your teeth are treated to a deeper level of cleaning. We recommend for most of our patients to have a checkup at least every six months. In addition to a thorough cleaning and polishing of your teeth, these regular visits help us detect and prevent the onset of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. 

During your visit, Centers for Healing Doctors will check:

  1. The health of your mouth
  2. Teeth
  3. Gums
  4. Cheeks, and tongue. 
  5. ALSO, old fillings and restorations, as these can wear away over time from constant chewing, grinding, or clenching.

If you are predisposed to oral diseases, you may need to visit Centers for Healing more often than every six months. Factors at play in these diseases include age, pregnancy, tobacco use, medical conditions (such as diabetes, dry mouth, or HIV infection), along with how well you take care of your teeth on a daily basis.

Make sure your teeth get the professional attention they deserve – If you’re overdue for your next cleaning, CALL OUR OFFICE at  805-375-2233  to schedule an appointment! Don't forget to MENTION THIS BLOG when you call!
