If you want to sustain your overall dental health you have to create a close correlation between home and professional care. Once your dentist has completed a thorough examination and evaluated the state of your oral health he will consult with you about his findings and you can work together to organize a maintenance plan.
Digital technology has enabled your dentist to be able to show his patients the radiography images and explain what they indicate just as he sees them himself. It’s a kind of dental show and tell that makes it easier for patients to see and understand why a particular treatment might be advised.
People no longer have to suffer through the invasive procedures that are associated with advanced gum disease. As a matter of fact, gum disease is totally controllable – as long as it is identified at an early stage. The only way to guarantee that it will be is to keep regular six month appointments with your dentist.
A typical part of a visit to the dentist is the cleaning that the hygienist performs. The brushing and flossing that you do at home is productive in the removal of the plaque that the teeth are exposed to every day. A dental hygienist however, uses special tools that can reach below the gumline to remove the bacteria that leads to plaque buildup.
