We recommend our patients come in twice each year for routine examinations and cleanings. If you have gum disease, we might suggest more frequent visits.
At Tranquility Dental Wellness, we place a strong emphasis on preventing problems while they are still small. Regular trips to your Lacey, WA dentist give us a chance to identify minor issues before they become big ones.
Even if you are diligent about brushing and flossing at home, you can still develop cavities and gum disease. This is because plaque builds up on and in-between teeth that even the most careful home care cannot remove. When teeth are not professionally cleaned on a regular basis, they become a breeding ground for bacteria. Left unchecked, the bacteria will eat away at your tooth enamel and cause gum irritation, decay, and bad breath. Coming in twice each year for a cleaning enables our skilled hygienist to use special dental tools to gently remove the plaque and tartar that have built up on your teeth.
Having a dental examination twice every year means that we can put a stop to problems in their earliest stages. The earlier we see a problem, the less invasive the treatment, and often the less expensive.
