Why It's Important to Visit Our Dentist Office Regularly
At Tranquility Dental Wellness, we recommend seeing our dentist at least twice per year. Without regular dental exams, it is impossible to maintain optimal oral health for life, which is our goal for you!
For example, early periodontal disease may not have any noticeable symptoms. Infections in their earliest stages may not cause pain.
When you see our Tacoma, WA dentist regularly, issues like these (that often lead to tooth loss or dental emergencies) can be caught early and treated effectively.
What to Expect
At Tranquility Dental Wellness, your exam consists of a careful evaluation by our skilled dentist. This often means x-rays to compare any dental changes since your last visit.
If you have a cavity, the dentist will fill it on this day or schedule a follow-up appointment. It’s important to remember that you may not notice small cavities until they cause pain. Our Tacoma, WA dentist, however, can spot them before they become an issue.
It’s also crucial to schedule dental cleanings every six months. Brushing and flossing alone cannot kill the tartar and bacteria that lead to periodontal disease and emergency dental infections.
Dental cleanings are also a great time to discuss best practices for oral hygiene at home with our dental hygienist, including the best floss or toothbrush type for your unique smile.
Healthy Teeth for Life
At Tranquility Dental Wellness, we want your teeth to last for life, which is why we follow the recommendations of the American Dental Association when it comes to dental exams and dental cleanings.
