Having regular dental appointments is important for your oral health. Dr. Ryan Wilson suggests that patients come in for a checkup at least twice a year. Depending on your oral health, you may need to visit our office more often. It is important that you come to Canyon Dental Care as recommended because our dentist can detect dental health issues, like cavities, early during these visits. Treatment will be simpler and more affordable if a dental issue is caught early. Our dentist can prevent some issues from occurring in the first place if you come in for your regular checkups. Having regular dental appointments is also important because some diseases have symptoms that manifest in the mouth and our dentist will check for these.
When you come to Canyon Dental Care for your routine appointment, our hygienist will first thoroughly clean your teeth. Then our dentist or hygienist will examine your teeth and gums thoroughly. They will check your gums for signs of gum disease and other issues. Our dentist will then perform an oral cancer screening. They will decide whether or not you need dental X-rays taken.
Remember that even if you don’t have any symptoms, it is important to see the dentist regularly. You could still have dental issues that are in their early stages that our dentist can diagnose. Also, having regular dental cleanings is beneficial to your oral health. We invite you to contact our office today for more information about dental cleanings in Farmington, New Mexico, and to schedule your next visit.
