Your teeth are an integral part of your daily life, and not just for eating. They play a major part in your appearance, speech, and of course your ability to eat.

However, if you neglect your teeth and don’t make sure they’re healthy, you may end up needing implants, bridges, or dentures later on in life to preserve the lifestyle you’re used to living.

This is just one of the reasons it’s so important to visit Dr. Spartak Delakyan here at Greenwood Dental & Orthodontics on a regular basis.

With that in mind, let’s look at a few more reasons why it’s so important to visit a dentist at least twice a year.

Dentists clean what you can’t

One of the biggest causes of tooth health issues is the buildup of tartar. Tartar is hardened plaque that can only be removed through a process called planing, which the experts here at Greenwood Dental & Orthodontics are highly trained in. You can’t remove tartar at home, and if it builds up at all you’re at risk for cavities and gum disease.

Dentists can spot cavities before you feel them

You may not always feel a cavitiy’s presence as it grows. However, your dentist can spot them long before you can feel them. This means your cavity can be fixed before it gets to be a serious issue.
