When you come in for a regular checkup, we can check your teeth, gums, tongue, and mouth. X-rays can also be done so we can inspect between your teeth and below the gum line. If there is a start of a cavity, it can be fixed before it develops into something worse. If you experience any pain in your mouth, make sure to come in as soon as possible so we can check your teeth for you. It is always best to catch an issue before it forms into something worse.
If you are not sure how to brush properly, we can advise you on the correct technique. We can also recommend the proper toothbrush and toothpaste that you should use. This can keep your teeth and mouth as clean as possible. You should also be aware of the proper technique of flossing. This helps to remove food particles and substance that can get stuck between your teeth, where a toothbrush cannot reach it. Ignoring the task of brushing or flossing can increase the chance for cavities or other oral mouth issues.
