New year. New you.
Many people make resolutions for the new year. It can be adopting a healthy lifestyle, knocking something off the bucket list, or redoing dated home décor, but what about your oral health?
Sometimes people skip their twice-yearly dental exams and cleanings, hoping that all is well with their teeth and gums, but you put your oral health and physical wellness at risk when you do this.
Vow this year to visit your dentist on time, and let’s kick off 2021 with an exam and professional teeth cleaning in Elk Grove Village, IL.
Your Dental Check-up and Teeth Cleaning
Your dental exam looks for oral cancer and changes since your last visit. We also search for cavities, and we take x-rays to make sure there is no hidden decay between teeth.
But it is your teeth cleaning that really lowers your risks for preventable conditions, including:
- Tooth decay
- Oral infections
- Gum disease
- Tooth loss
Dental cleaning with a trained professional removes everything that your toothbrush cannot, including resistant and hard-to-reach plaque and tartar. These are the ingredients that lead to dental conditions. We can also provide brushing and flossing tips to help you out at home.
Of course, it is also important to brush and floss between dental visits. And always reach out to your dentist in Elks Grove Village, IL if you notice anything unusual in your mouth—sores that don’t heal or lingering tooth sensitivity.
Customized Dentistry in Elk Grove Village, IL
If you already have gingivitis or gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss, your dentist provides a custom schedule to improve your oral health and save your smile.
We understand that everyone is different and has different dental care needs.
