We know that visiting a dental office is not very exciting and feels scary sometimes. However, think of the benefits that attending a dental checkup every six months brings, like cleaning your teeth and making sure you have no problems. Even if your teeth feel fine, the dentist may see something you are missing.
A dental cleaning can remove plaque that gets left behind. This is not necessarily because you slacked off with brushing, as toothbrushes and dental floss cannot catch every bit of plaque. As leftover plaque continues to pile, it can become tartar, which is hard to clean off with a brush or a floss. You need to clean out plaque and tartar as often as possible, as they can lead to cavities and gum disease.
Fortunately, Dr. K. Cheyn Gunnerson has the proper tools to clean plaque and tartar you may have missed. This way, you can avoid the discomfort that comes with cavities and gum disease, leaving you more problem-free.
If you do have a developing cavity or gingivitis, which signals the beginning of gum disease, then the dentist can recognize them during an exam. Dr. K. Cheyn Gunnerson has the experience and knowledge to catch cavities and gingivitis when they are starting, and he can help you halt a cavity’s progress and reverse gingivitis, preventing any future discomfort for you.
