You’ve probably heard that it’s important for you to schedule regular appointments with our team if you’re hoping to keep your teeth healthy. However, do you ever wonder why these appointments are important—or if you really need to visit our dentist if your teeth feel fine?  

In reality, these appointments are very important. You see, even if you work hard to keep your teeth clean at home, our team will be able to offer you a more thorough cleaning. In fact, we may even recognize spots that aren’t cleaned as well as they could be. Furthermore, if tartar has formed on your teeth, you won’t be able to remove it from home. Doing so could actually damage your pearly whites or your gums.

We’ll also inspect your teeth for problems like gum disease and tooth decay. While you may not think these issues apply to you, would you be surprised to learn that these issues can actually be hard to recognize? Sadly, this means that many people have these problems without recognizing them. We’ll also look for other issues that could be hard to recognize, such as oral cancer.  

Do you have more questions about the care you can receive from our team? Would you like to learn more about the benefits of a checkup in Meridian, Idaho? Are you hoping to set up a time to meet with our dentist, Dr. Matthew Tuft? If so, we invite you to give Copperstone Dental a call at 208•376•5499. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
