Making Smart Use Of Your Dental Benefits

At the beginning of the new year, many people enjoy a renewal of their dental benefits, or take on new coverage that they can use to protect their smile. Taking advantage of your access to preventive dental care will be important. After all, you can rely on routine appointments to provide helpful updates about your oral health, and you can count on them for help with issues like tartar buildup, gingivitis, and tooth decay. Our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office is here to help you keep your smile in great health for the new year, and beyond! We are also here to care for you if you experience issues with your well-being that need to be addressed, or if you want to take on active problems with your appearance through cosmetic treatment.

Is Your Next Preventive Appointment Set?

You should have a routine dental appointment scheduled every six months. Your access to preventive dentistry lowers your risk for a number of oral health threats. It also provides support for your dental hygiene that will make it easier for you to avoid future difficulties with your dental and periodontal well-being. We are ready to help if you need to book your next appointment, or if you want to see someone about an active concern.

Make Sure Your Smile Receives The Right Support

During a routine dental exam and cleaning, there are several actions that should take place to protect your smile. During your visit, you can receive a teeth cleaning from your hygienist, which will take care of plaque and tartar buildup that makes you vulnerable to oral health problems. If necessary, we can provide a deep periodontal cleaning that also removes bacteria from the roots of teeth, clearing out harmful microbes under your gum line that are responsible for gingivitis. You also receive a thorough review from your dentist that will let you know if any problems have developed that require restorative dental work.

Taking Care Of An Active Oral Health Concern

You can certainly have a hard time hearing that you need restorative treatment during a dental exam. With that said, early detection and treatment of an oral health threat protects you against complications that can seriously impact your well-being and complicate that kind of care you require. For tooth decay we catch at a routine visit, we can provide a conservative dental filling to restore your tooth after we take care of the decayed portion.
