Why is Routine Dental Care Important?

The Dentists of Newtown are dedicated to providing high-quality dental care to patients in Newtown, PA. Many patients know that it is important to visit the dentist on a regular basis. We recommend that patients visit our office biannually or every six months. However, many patients may not realize just how important routine dental visits are.

At these routine appointments, we offer preventative dental care to patients. Our dental hygienists thoroughly clean the smile and our dentists examine the smile to find emerging dental problems. With regular dental visits, patients can prevent the need for future restorative, general, or cosmetic dental care. Additionally, we can consult with patients to help them find the best treatment for their current needs. We take their dental and medical history, oral health problems, and personal goals into account to create customized dental care.

What Happens at Routine Dental Appointments?

Learn more about what we provide at regular dental visits for our patients:

Professional Dental Cleanings

Our dental hygienists provide dental cleanings to patients of all ages. These cleanings remove plaque and tartar from the teeth and gums. Plaque is a film of bacteria that coats the mouth. When plaque hardens, it becomes tartar. Bacteria buildup leaves patients prone to developing tooth decay and gum disease. Our hygienists can also provide scaling and root planing treatment. These treatments, when used in tandem, remove calculus from the gums and tooth roots. For younger patients, we may recommend dental sealants and fluoride treatment. Sealants and fluoride protect the teeth against decay and prevent cavities.

Dental Examinations

One of our dentists will examine your smile after your dental cleaning. We may also take dental x-rays as needed. These examinations help identify any potential developing dental problems. Some problems can be difficult to spot, even with x-rays. Even non-dental problems can be indicated by changes in the teeth and gums. Our dental team will help you find oral health and overall health issues with examinations and x-rays.

Oral Health Care

Once we thoroughly clean and examine the smile, we may recommend treatment. If you have a sudden dental injury or changes in your smile, call our office and we can help. Our office provides emergency dental appointments to prevent tooth and gum damage as well as tooth loss. Additionally, if you have cosmetic problems that you would like to address, such as misaligned or discolored teeth, consult one of our dentists. We work with patients as individuals to find the best treatment for their smiles. Whether it’s veneers, whitening treatment, implants,
