Are you brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing? If yes, that’s terrific! But, don’t forget that it’s also important for you to visit the dentist every six months in addition to brushing your teeth a couple times a day (and coming in to see Dr. Willes, of course). Regular dental checkups are important for maintaining good oral health.
Your dentist can also:
• Check for problems that might not be seen or felt
• Detect cavities and early signs of decay
• Treat oral health problems early
During an oral exam your general dentist will check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks and tongue. Checkups will also include a thorough teeth cleaning and polishing. If you have not been to the dentist in the last six months, it’s time for you to schedule an appointment! Or, ask us at Willes Orthodontics and we'll refer a couple of great names in Carlsbad or surrounding areas!
