Regular Dental Checkups
in Arvada, CO

Six-month dental checkups are one of the main requirements for building a healthy, attractive smile. We know there are many demands on a person’s time that can easily cause you to put off these important dental visits. Please don’t put off the care you deserve! While you are here for routine visits, we’ll take many steps to ensure your mouth is healthy and clean:

  • Dental Cleanings and Exams — Your friendly dental hygienist will clean and polish each of your teeth to remove lingering plaque, tartar, and dangerous bacteria. They will make sure to cover hard-to-get-to areas you might miss when brushing and flossing on your own.
  • Oral Cancer Screenings — We can screen your mouth for oral cancer as a preventive step. Early detection of this disease increases the odds of successful treatment.
  • Gum Disease Treatment — If we see signs of gum infection, we will get your gums back on a healthy track fast so that you never have to experience tooth loss that can occur as a result of undiagnosed gum disease.
  • Preventive Treatments — Depending on the results of your exam, we may recommend fluoride treatments or dental sealants to help prevent future problems.

Get a clean mouth and a great-looking smile with routine dental cleanings and exams from Winter Dental.

  • Why is regular teeth cleaning important?

    Regular teeth cleaning is essential for maintaining optimal oral health because it effectively removes plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing and flossing can’t reach. This preventive measure helps avoid tooth decay and gum disease, which can lead to more serious health complications if untreated. Professional cleanings also allow your dentist to spot early signs of potential dental issues, ensuring prompt and effective treatment. Furthermore, routine cleanings can result in fresher breath and a brighter smile, boosting your overall confidence and well-being. By prioritizing regular teeth cleanings, you are investing in the long-term health of your teeth and gums.

  • How often should you get dental checkups?

    To maintain optimal oral health, it is recommended that dental checkups be scheduled every six months. These regular visits allow your dentist to thoroughly examine your teeth and gums, catch any issues early, and perform professional cleanings to remove plaque and tartar buildup. Depending on your individual oral health needs, your dentist may suggest more frequent visits to address specific concerns or conditions. Consistent checkups help ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy and can prevent more serious dental problems in the future.

  • Why are brushing and flossing important?

    Brushing and flossing are vital for maintaining good oral hygiene and preventing dental issues. Brushing removes plaque, food particles, and bacteria from the surfaces of your teeth, helping to prevent cavities and gum disease. Flossing complements brushing by cleaning between the teeth and under the gumline, areas that a toothbrush cannot reach, thus removing debris and plaque buildup that can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease. Together, these practices help maintain healthy teeth and gums, reduce bad breath, and contribute to overall oral health. Regular brushing and flossing, along with routine dental checkups, are essential for a bright and healthy smile.
