Dentist in Wilmington, MA Urges Six Month Checkups

December 14, 2015

As your dentist in Wilmington, my first priority is always your dental health. As such, you could say I’m focused first and foremost on preventive care — that is, stopping oral problems before they get the chance to start. But to do that, I need a little help from you. When you schedule and maintain your twice-annual appointments to Wilmington Family Dental, we can do our part to help you keep your teeth healthy today, tomorrow and for years to come.

Too many adults believe that a dental checkup every six months is optional, or really not all that necessary. Instead, they schedule an appointment every year, every two years or, in the worst cases, only when they experience pain or some other oral problem. That’s a destructive cycle, and it’s one we want to do our best to stop.

Twice Annual Visits to Your Dentist in Wilmington: Key to Healthy Teeth

When you stay on top of your regular cleanings and checkups at Wilmington Family Dental, we’re able to help you maintain the absolute best oral health possible. And it’s about more than checking for decay, even though that’s a big focus. At your twice annual checkup, your Wilmington dentist will also check for the following:

  • Gum disease examination and charting
  • Bruxism, or nighttime teeth grinding and clenching
  • TMJ (your jaw joint) dysfunction, a disorder known as TMD
  • Oral cancer screenings

All of these conditions are highly treatable when caught in their earliest stages, and that’s why we make diagnosing them as soon as possible one of our main goals in your twice annual dental exam.

Get That “Clean Teeth” Feeling at Your Six Month Appointment

In our effort to make sure your teeth are as healthy as they can be, our team of dental professionals will also carefully and thoroughly clean your teeth, removing plaque and any tartar that’s had the chance to build up over the past six months. A twice annual cleaning is vital for making sure your teeth feel as clean as they look — and everyone loves that “clean teeth” feel.
