At Waterview Dental Group Dr. Tae Chul Ho and our team know how important routine dental checkups are to our patients in in Portland, Connecticut. In fact, regular professional dental cleanings are vital for protecting the smile you work so hard on maintaining daily, by brushing and flossing diligently. Here are some reasons for you to make sure to come in regularly:

— Your dental checkup includes a deep cleaning treatment that removes the plaque and tartar from your smile. This is very important because plaque and tartar are extremely harmful particles that can attack your teeth and gums, creating tooth decay and gum disease. These two dental issues are dangerous, painful, and inconvenient.

— The examination section of the appointment is very beneficial because it helps you know the health and condition of your teeth, gums, and underlying bone. It will involve taking a few X-rays and it will also involve your dentist visually examining your entire oral cavity. If you have dental issues, your dentist will find them and will begin treatment right away.

— A fluoride treatment is also provided during this appointment. This treatment is very helpful because it strengthens and nourishes your teeth, giving them the ability to fight many dental issues, like tooth decay and tooth sensitivity.
