Your Annual Fall Dental Check-In

October 22, 2021

Fall is in full swing, and it is finally time to get ready for holiday fun, enjoy the beauty of the leaves changing color, and take care of your annual fall dental check-in. It is recommended that you have your teeth cleaned and checked at least twice a year, though, for people with dental sensitivity or with preexisting dental conditions, your dentist may recommend more frequent trips. We recommend that you schedule a teeth cleaning in both the spring and the fall so that you can ensure that you catch any potential issues well before they become a serious health hazard. If you are interested in finding a new dental practice that fits your whole family’s needs, come into Fenton Family Dental today. Our expert staff will make sure that every member of your family is fully taken care of and comfortable in one quick visit. Here are a few things you can expect at your annual fall dental check-in.

Bi-annual cleaning

We will begin every check-in with a thorough examination of your teeth to see if any new cavities have formed and to see how healthy your gums are. Once we have established your overall oral health and found any potential issues with your teeth, we will take care of any issues that we discovered in the examination and then move on to the teeth cleaning. As long as you have been flossing, brushing, and using mouthwash according to your dentist’s recommendations, your cleaning should be quick, easy, and painless. Any discomfort felt during your cleaning is usually due to plaque buildup or cavities that needed to be treated.

Tell Us What’s New

Many of the most common dental complaints and issues can be difficult for dentists to spot, as many issues can be residing below the surface without us ever finding them in an examination. If you have been experiencing any discomfort, any pain while chewing, or any sensitivity to temperature, you need to tell us during one of your routine cleanings. Of course, if you ever notice any shooting pains, critical damage, or serious discomfort you should make an emergency appointment as soon as possible to stop the issue from getting worse.
