Dental Hygiene Visits for Your Health!

You might not realize it, but regular dental hygiene visits are just as important as daily brushing and flossing. Yet people are less likely to schedule six-month dental visits than they are to schedule annual physicals. Dr. Greg Seal wants you to understand the importance of dental hygiene visits.

What are dental hygiene visits?

During a dental hygiene visit, the dental hygienist will clean your teeth, examine your mouth and gums, and monitor your overall oral health.

What does a dental hygiene visit involve?

Your dental hygiene visit will be thorough, but non-invasive. The process includes:

• A comprehensive exam
• X-rays, as needed
• Periodontal (gums) exam
• Oral cancer screening
• Individual recommendations for maintaining or improving your dental health, because everyone has different needs and health status

Why should I schedule regular dental hygiene visits?

Through regular hygiene visits, Dr. Seal and his hygienist can monitor your oral health, which will help prevent future problems and treat harmful oral conditions early. If a condition is diagnosed early, the treatment can be more conservative and less invasive. Regular dental hygiene visits can prevent or detect conditions such as dental decay, gum disease, and oral cancer before they become serious and lead to further issues. Protecting your oral health also protects your overall health.
