Why are Dental Checkups and Teeth Cleanings Important?

Dental checkups help to keep your teeth and gums healthy. These visits allow our dentist, Dr. Flippen, to identify any potential oral health issues that may go unnoticed until it’s too late. The earlier Dr. Flippen is able to detect these issues, the more likely he will be able to save your natural smile. It has the added bonus of usually being less expensive in the long run, as well. Our dental hygienist is also able to use our high-tech dental tools to remove harmful plaque and tartar buildup that at-home dental care products cannot remove. Scheduling your regular check-ups can help keep your whole body healthy, as well. Our dentist is able to identify other chronic conditions affecting your overall health by the way your mouth is kept.
