It is a well-known fact that you should visit the dentist twice a year along with your daily regimen of brushing and flossing daily. These yearly checkups allow your dentist to keep a close eye on your dental health and provide the dental services you need to keep your teeth strong and prevent infections.

Any dentist appointment you make with us will give you a better chance at fighting off plaque buildup, cavities, and other dental dangers. At your biannual appointment, Dr. Steven Sachs and our dental professionals will give you a professional cleaning and exam. This includes:

– Doing an extensive cleaning, removing tartar (also known as dental calculus) and plaque. These can lead to cavities, decay, or periodontal disease.

– Flossing and polishing your teeth as well as applying a professional fluoride treatment.

– Looking for any sign of dental diseases or complications as well as checking for signs of oral cancer.

We also use X-rays to do a full examination of the insides of your teeth to check for healthy roots and pulp. These examinations ensure a close look at your teeth and finding any problems early on. If needed, you may need to visit the dentist more than twice a year. Call Sachs Family Dental to schedule your next appointment at 801-225-4701.
