Dental checkups and cleanings are commonly pushed to the backburner due to patients not fully understanding their importance and time-sensitive nature. If you’ve ever heard of the timeless adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” then you already know exactly why regular dental visits are necessary—to stop small issues before they have a chance to wreak havoc.

The Importance of Routine Checkups & Cleanings

The American Dental Association, along with Dr. Rabban and the rest of our team at Clinton Township Family Dental, recommends that everybody over the age of one visit their dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning. Although a tooth may not be hurting you, and even if your at-home oral hygiene routine is spot-on, these regular appointments are crucial to maintain a whole and healthy smile throughout your life.

During them, your dentist can curb the impact of dental issues by:

  • Screening you for oral cancer to catch any symptoms as early as possible.
  • Checking the depths of your gum pockets and identifying signs of gum disease so it can be treated before permanent damage occurs.
  • Preventing tooth loss and bacteria accumulation within the mouth with routine professional cleanings.
  • Offering helpful at-home dental hygiene tips to keep your smile in tip-top shape.

What Can You Expect From a Dental Checkup?

Each of your dental checkups at Clinton Township Family Dental will begin with capturing necessary X-rays. Typically, this occurs every six months to a year, depending on your insurance coverage and individual dental needs. You’ll then meet with Dr. Rabban for a thorough examination of each of your teeth, as well as your gums. During this time, she will ask about any concerns you may be having and provide you with an overview of her findings and recommended treatment plans if any issues are identified.

What Can You Expect From a Dental Cleaning?

After you’ve had a chance to ask Dr. Rabban any questions you may have, the next part of your appointment will be your professional cleaning with one of our experienced dental hygienists. They’re gentle and sure to navigate around any sensitive areas of your mouth so you remain as comfortable as possible. After removing all plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth, your hygienist will polish them and finish your visit off by flossing between each of your teeth. On your way out, our team will help schedule your next cleaning with us so we can send you a reminder when the date gets closer!
