Our dentist, Dr. Sage White, would like to help you better understand why your dental checkups are vital for your oral health and smile. They are vital because they can benefit you in a myriad of ways. Today, they would like to explain how the exam portion of your appointments can help you. They can help you by:

-Identifying any dental problems: Your dentist will look for signs of cavities, gum disease, enamel erosion, tooth cracks, and more. Your dentist will do so with the use of dental X-rays, dental tools, and special dental techniques. If a problem is found, they will restore your oral health as soon as possible.

-Detecting oral cancer: This is because your dentist will perform an oral cancer screening during your appointment. If an oral cancer symptom is identified, your dentist will do a biopsy and inform you on the next steps to take.

-Giving you a better idea of how to care for your smile: This is because your dentist will detect any weak spots in your mouth. Then, they will give you the tips you need to accomplish stronger and better teeth and gums.
