Dental checkups are very important, which is why your dentist, Dr. Scott A. Ervin, strongly encourages attending your checkups every six months. Whether you believe it or not, your checkups can benefit you in a variety of different ways. To help you know how, our dental team is happy to list the benefits of a dental checkup here:

-Dental checkups help you prevent tooth decay and gum disease, which are dental issues that can destroy your smile and oral health. The cleaning treatment provided can remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth that your toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss cannot remove. Plaque and tartar promote these dental issues.

-Dental checkups can strengthen your smile and help you prevent enamel erosion and other dental issues. The fluoride treatment provided can nourish your tooth enamel and give it the ability to fight bacteria and maintain its health and strength.

-Dental checkups can help you have a more pleasing smile. This is because the polishing treatment involved can remove the minor discoloration on the surfaces of your teeth. This can make your teeth brighter and more striking.
