The Importance of Your 6 Month Checkup
by Dr. Michael Popp on Aug 21, 2015

It is very important that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a checkup and general cleaning. This helps to ensure that your teeth stay healthy and strong, and will help your dentist assess any future problems as soon as possible. Here are 5 reasons you should book your 6 Month Checkup at Marlborough Dental today:

  1. Prevent Cavities and Tooth Loss
    This seems fairly straightforward, but is incredibly important. While brushing, flossing and using mouthwash contribute significantly to cavity prevention, getting your teeth cleaned helps to get to those hard to reach places and will keep your teeth clean and strong. Untreated cavities result in extreme tooth decay. If a tooth decays too much it cannot be fixed with a simple filling and will have to be removed.

  2. Brighten your smile
    Keep your pearly whites pearly white! Everyday foods like coffee, tea and wine can stain teeth over time, resulting in unsightly yellow and brown stains. While regular tooth brushing will help keep stains from forming in the first place regular teeth cleanings will keep them away and remove built up stains, giving you a beautiful smile you can’t help but show off with confidence.

  3. Freshen your breath
    Good oral hygiene is the best way to prevent chronic bad breath. Even brushing and flossing regularly a professional cleaning is the best way to ensure all food and plaque are removed from your teeth and gums.

  4. Boost your overall health
    Studies have shown that there is a connection between overall health and good oral hygiene. Getting your teeth cleaned regularly can actually lower your risk for diseases such as heart disease and stroke. Plus, some life threatening medical conditions can be detected by your dentist when they perform a routine oral exam.

  5. Save money
    Clean teeth is an investment. By getting your teeth cleaned every 6 months you can prevent bigger problems that require more invasive procedures down the road. By keeping your teeth in good health you can avoid things like fillings, root canals, and false teeth. Your dentist is also the first person who will notice things like slightly crooked teeth, and can help you identify and address orthodontic problems as soon as possible.
