Your dental cleaning appointments are vital for your oral health, even if you think your teeth and gums are healthy and strong. So, stop skipping them. To help you understand why skipping your dental appointments is damaging to your smile, Dr. Tracey Tabor Williams & Amy Montefalco is happy to give you the reasons.

No. 1: Your dental appointments provide a cleaning treatment your smile absolutely needs every six months. This cleaning can completely remove the tartar from your smile and gums, which is something your oral hygiene routine cannot do for you. This is important because tartar is a stubborn and toxic substance that can attack the teeth and gums, deteriorate your underlying bone, and destroy your smile.

No. 2: Your dental appointments include a special treatment that can strengthen and nourish your teeth. This treatment is called a fluoride treatment. With the help of the fluoride, your smile will be able to fight tooth decay and enamel erosion. Your smile needs to be exposed to fluoride regularly.

No. 3: Your dental appointments allow Dr. Tracey Tabor Williams & Amy Montefalco and our dental team the chance to thoroughly inspect your smile. This is beneficial because if you have any dental issues, or the beginning of dental issues, our dental team will be able to detect them and treat them, which can help you prevent extreme pain and severe consequences in the future.
