Maintain a healthy smile with routine dental exams

Routine Dental Exams in Boston Area

Everyone knows that regular brushing and flossing at home are important for a healthy smile. But what many don’t realize is that at-home care is not always enough to prevent dental problems from occurring. Routine preventative dental exams play a major role in oral health. At Anjum A. Ansari D.M.D. in Boston, Massachusetts, we recommend patients come into our office every six months for a routine dental checkup.

Why are dental exams important?

You may be wondering why you need to come to the dentist’s office every six months if you are not experiencing any problems. We are all very busy and on the go, so it’s easy to see how dental care can be put on the back burner. Prioritizing your dental exams will help you prevent dental problems and keep your smile looking better. Here are a few of the top reasons to maintain routine visits:

  • Thorough cleaning – Even with the best brushing and flossing habits, plaque and bacteria can still be found growing in the mouth. Over time, the plaque will harden into tartar, a leading cause of cavities and gum disease. Brushing and flossing at home is not enough to remove tartar and prevent cavities and gum disease. A professional cleaning from your dental hygienist is. During this cleaning, we can remove buildup to leave your teeth healthier and looking better.
  • Early detection – During your exam, x-rays are taken and evaluated by the dentist before he performs a thorough visual examination of the mouth. The images and the exam allow Dr. Ansari to identify any areas of concern early when they are most easily treated. Detecting a cavity early can mean the difference between a simple affordable filling or a more invasive root canal and dental crown. 
  • Discuss concerns – Maybe you’ve recently noticed some bleeding while you brush your teeth, or you are unhappy with a chipped tooth that has gotten worse. Your routine dental exam is a great time to discuss these concerns with your dental team and determine your options for treatment.
