So, you know that dental cleanings and dental exams are critical to a healthy smile, but why? What do regular dental cleanings and exams do that is so important to the overall health of your smile?
Those are good questions, and Galleria of Smiles is here to give you the answers. Drs. Justin and Mehrdad Emami have a wealth of dental knowledge that they want to share with you. Take a moment and learn more about the importance of dental cleanings and dental exams at Galleria of Smiles.
Prevention is Always the Best Solution
One of the big reasons that dental cleanings and exams are so important is the prevention factor. Your teeth are important, as they are the only ones that you will get. Preventing problems from happening is much easier and cheaper than treating those same problems once they become visible. Some issues your teeth have cannot be seen (look below at “Are Dental Exams Needed?”).
Just like it is cheaper to buy a new tire for your car than to have it towed after the old tire goes flat, it is cheaper to catch any developing issues with your teeth in their infancy. Gum disease starts out with symptoms that you may completely overlook, but Dr. Justin Emami will catch them during your dental exam. You may have plaque and tartar buildup in a spot that you can’t see, but Dr. M. Emami will see it and get it out of your mouth.
Your smile needs the help that Galleria of Smiles provides. Call either of our two Tulsa area locations to get your appointment set up.
Why Regular Dental Cleanings Are A Big Deal
We talked a little bit earlier about plaque and tartar buildup in an area that you cannot see. Well, this is more common than you might think. No matter how well you brush your teeth, what toothpaste or toothbrush you use, you will ALWAYS miss something. There are five sides to your teeth, and you can only see two or maybe three sides of them. That leaves 40 to 60 percent of your teeth unchecked at any given point in time.
Your Galleria of Smiles dentist has the tools, training, and experience to makes sure that every side of your teeth is clean and free from disease-causing plaque and tartar.
Are Dental Exams Needed?
A dental exam gives Dr. Justin or Dr. M. Emami a chance to visually check for problem spots on your teeth. The dental X-ray gives them the chance to see what is going on with your dental alignment and bone structure, and cavity detection from Galleria of Smiles will find any tooth decay that you may have. Without a dental exam at Galleria of Smiles, all of these issues would go unchecked.
If you suffer from gingivitis, you would not know until the symptoms moved passed bleeding gums after you brush. If your teeth have an issue with their alignment, you wouldn’t know until you have to spend each day with a crooked smile. If you have a cavity, you wouldn’t know until it erupted through your tooth and left you with a blackened smile.
All of these are examples of how your teeth and gums benefit from the needed dental exams that you get at Galleria of smiles. With locations in both Tulsa and Sand Springs, we are able to help you get and keep the healthy smile you deserve.
Regular Dental Cleanings and Exams Keep Your Smile Great
Treatment and prevention are the two key reasons you need regular dental cleanings and dental exams. Professionalism, competence, and a desire to do the best job we can are the reasons you should have your dental cleanings and exams done by the dentists at Galleria of Smiles.
