You brush and floss your teeth every day, but Dr. Lance Anderson at Lovell Dental still says that you and everyone else in your family should get at least two checkups and cleanings per year to keep your teeth completely healthy. Why is this the case?
In short, while brushing and flossing are important, they simply aren’t able to meet all of your dental needs. A professional cleaning can reach those spots in your mouth where plaque and bacteria gather that your brush and floss can’t. And, should you develop a cavity, often it’s your dentist who will notice it before you. By coming in to see us regularly, we’ll be able to keep your teeth looking and feeling great as well as help you avoid needing more invasive and expensive treatments in the future. Plus, these preventive visits are also when Dr. Anderson can perform an oral cancer screening to ensure you’re never caught off guard by this potentially fatal disease. If it’s been more than six months since you or your child’s last checkup, be sure to schedule an appointment so we can keep your family’s smiles safe and beautiful!
