Protect Your Smile With Cleanings & Checkups
At Landmark Smiles of Scottsdale, we understand the impact regular dental cleanings and checkups can have on our patients' oral and overall health. A healthy smile is not only a confidence booster – it’s also a fundamental factor in maintaining overall wellness.
Why are cleanings and checkups so vital?
Regular dental cleanings and checkups are paramount to a healthy mouth. These routine visits help us detect and prevent potential problems before they escalate into more severe, painful, and costly issues. For instance, we can identify early signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and even oral cancer, which are much easier to manage in their initial stages.
Moreover, cleanings rid the mouth of plaque and tartar buildup, which can lead to cavities and gum infections if left untreated. In fact, research has shown a strong connection between oral health and overall wellness, as poor dental hygiene can contribute to heart disease, diabetes, and other systemic conditions.
What type of care can you expect during these visits?
We understand that dental visits can be a source of anxiety for many people. That's why we strive to create a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere at our Scottsdale practice. By fostering a positive and trusting relationship with our patients, we aim to instill the importance of oral health care from a young age.
How often should my family have their smile examined and cleaned?
Establishing healthy habits early on is crucial to enjoying a lifetime of strong teeth and gums. We recommend bringing your child in for their first dental checkup around their first birthday or when their first tooth emerges. From then on, regular checkups and cleanings every six months will help create a strong foundation for their oral health journey.
When you entrust our capable team with your smile, you can rest assured that you’ll be treated with compassionate, effective, personalized care. Call us today!
