If you ever wonder why you should attend your routine dental checkups at Catharine Willis DMD, then you have come to the right blog. Today, our dentist, Dr. Catharine Willis, is happy to explain why your dental checkups are very important for your oral health and smile. Your dental checkups can do many things for you. In fact, they can:

-Help you prevent cavities: This is because the cleaning treatment removes the decay-causing substances from your teeth and gumline. The fluoride treatment provided can also strengthen your tooth enamel to help your teeth fight the bacteria that create cavities.

-Help you prevent gum disease: This is because the cleaning treatment eliminates the plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums, which is something your oral hygiene routine cannot do. The plaque and tartar are the main culprits of gum disease, and it’s important to remove them regularly.

-Help you have a more attractive smile: This is because the polishing treatment can remove minor surface stains and help you have whiter teeth. The checkup can also allow our dental team to identify spots that make the smile unattractive. We can then recommend treatment to enhance your appearance.
