There are very clear and obvious benefits when you commit to a twice-yearly visit to our Marietta dental office for an examination and teeth cleaning. Your teeth are strong, and this is provable by how much punishment they take every single day. Chewing, dealing with the effects of sugar and starches, and the discoloration that they suffer from common foods and drinks all show that your teeth are tough. But they can’t do it without your help. Good oral hygiene habits at home are essential, and so are biannual dental visits to see Dr. Enoch.
The effects of tooth decay and gum disease are high on the list of priorities when it comes to good dental care. Plaque is the major culprit in both, eroding your tooth enamel and irritating your gums. Most of it is taken care of by your brushing and flossing, but some hides in gum pockets and out of reach of your oral hygiene, where it hardens into tartar. By coming in for a session at our Marietta dental office two times per year, you allow Dr. Enoch to address any damage that plaque and tartar have caused before it can lead to anything serious. And a teeth cleaning is the only way to eradicate all the tartar you have ( as well as any remaining plaque) so that your teeth and gums will be less likely to suffer problems in the future. In fact, if you are exhibiting any indications of gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, a teeth cleaning will halt its progress and reverse its impact. And with a full checkup that includes periodic x-rays, any cavities will be found early and filled before they can grow larger and weaken your teeth.
Why not call our Marietta dental office right now and schedule an exam and cleaning? It will give you the peace of mind to know that your oral well-being is on the right track.
