Your oral health needs to be reviewed every six months to keep positive oral health. Luckily, our dentist, Dr. Chiru, with Complete Dental of Atlanta in Tucker, Georgia, is always happy to review your oral health through a dental checkup, so you know if your teeth and gums are healthy and strong.

The choices we make with our foods and drinks play an ongoing role in our oral health. The acids and sugars we consume in our everyday life can severely damage our oral health. Daily habits like brushing and flossing can help reduce the damage many foods we choose to eat can have on our teeth. However, despite our most significant efforts, plaque can remain and with time harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a professional dentist during your routine dental cleaning and checkup.

Dental checkups also check for other glitches in your oral health. For example, cavities, gum disease and even oral cancer are all looked for with your six-month visit. By treating any of these conditions early, you can save yourself from situations like tooth loss, bleeding or weakening gums, and even bone loss in your jaw. Basically, your oral health is vital to your body, which is why having it checked regularly can keep your oral health in positive shape and your smile lasting for years to come.

If you need help treating your smile from cavities or gum disease, or if you have questions about your oral health, please call us today at 770-492-0250 to set up a dental checkup. Our dental team is happy to answer any questions about your oral health care and give you the help you need for the health of your smile to succeed.
