Some things in life are optional — like milk in your coffee, or popcorn with your movie. One thing that’s not a choice, however, is your six month checkup and cleaning at Mitchell Smile Design. Unfortunately, these regular visits are often brushed off as something that can wait, or that’s not really all that necessary. But as your dentist in Oklahoma City, Dr. Mitchell wants to remind you that these visits are a vital step to excellent oral health. Keep reading to learn more, then schedule your first checkup of 2016!
Dr. Mitchell Knows Preventive Dental Care Is Key
Every excellent dentist knows it’s best to stop dental problems before they start — and to catch them early when they do get the chance to form. In order to do that, we need three things from you: regular brushing, flossing and maintaining your six month visits to Mitchell Smile Design. When you schedule and keep your appointments, we can take care of the rest.
What We Look For
Your twice-annual visit to Dr. Mitchell’s office is our chance to peek inside your mouth to make sure everything is as healthy as it should be. We look for a variety of things in these checkups, including:
- Evidence of tooth decay
- Red, swollen, tender or receding gums that indicate gum disease
- Checking to make sure you’re maintaining good oral hygiene at home
- Wear and tear on existing dental work
- Signs of oral cancer
Many of these conditions, tooth decay and gum disease especially, are easily repaired or reversed when caught early — but you have to give us the chance to look for them, first. And in addition to your checkup, our team of gentle dental hygienists also removes plaque and tartar spots from your teeth in the cleaning portion, meaning you walk out of our office with that amazing, clean-mouth feeling.
