In addition, it is important to observe good oral hygiene practices, and maintain a healthy diet to ensure optimal oral health.

Our dentists at Canatella Dental encourage regular dental exams in order to prevent future oral problems.

General Oral Health

If you have deposits of plaque and tartar that have accumulated for a long time since you last had a dental examination, then they need to be removed by conducting a professional cleaning.

Brushing and flossing are not enough and that is why you need to have your teeth cleaned professionally.

A dental exam is thorough and it is a preventive form of dentistry. During the exam, the dentist will check for oral health issues such as cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer.

By use of x-rays, the dental professional will ensure that they see even the hidden parts of the mouth to keep you safe.

Having a dental examination will give you a chance to learn about the methods and tools that are in the dental office and those that you can use at home to care for the teeth and gums.

When you undergo preventive care like a dental exam, it means that you are seeking treatment for an issue and preventing it from becoming worse.

For instance, when you have a toothache it might cause you to have an infection that can bring about health problems.

If you have gum disease it can translate to more serious health issues, but if detected early it can be treated.

Ensure that you have regular dental exams to have a chance to detect these oral issues before they become health hazards.

Dental Exams Help Reduce General Health Problems

The mouth can harbor bacteria, mucus, food, and many more impurities.

That is why when you go for long periods without cleaning the teeth and gums, you are likely to develop cavities, bad breath, and many more health issues.

The concern of not observing oral hygiene goes beyond the mouth. This is because the mouth has a link to many other body parts and can affect your overall health.

Gum disease is associated with health issues like dementia, heart disease, and diabetes.

This is why you need to dedicate ample time with the dentist to ensure that you stay healthy. Our dental team is aware that doing examinations will help in maintaining a healthy oral and overall lifestyle.

Visit us at Canatella Dental for a dental exam and cleaning. You can book an appointment by calling us at (504) 269-3486.
