It's difficult to make time in our schedules for everything we need to do to keep ourselves healthy. A lot of people wonder if it's necessary dental visitsto visit their dentist twice a year for x-rays, cleaning and a check-up, especially if they're practicing proper dental hygiene at home. Dr. Marcia Martinez, your family dentist in Orlando, FL, has given a few of the reasons she wants to see you and the members of your family two times each year.

Deep cleaning

Daily brushing and flossing are good for removing the food particles that collect on your teeth. However, certain spots can go overlooked, leading to a buildup of hardened plaque called tartar. This is especially true for those who have overlaps or crowding in their smile, since even the most diligent brushing and flossing may not reach these areas. By visiting your Orlando family dentist for a twice-yearly cleaning, these problem areas can be cleaned professionally and reduce the likelihood of developing decay. Our trained dental hygienists use tools that are specially designed to remove stubborn tartar and reach the spots you cannot normally see.

X-ray technology

Although you may be able to see a cavity forming on the surface of a tooth, many areas of decay tend to form between the teeth, where not even your Orlando dentist can readily spot them. That's why x-rays every six months are so important; they alert Dr. Martinez to the presence of any decay so it can be treated before it becomes larger and more invasive. This also helps to maintain current dental records so the staff at your family dentist's office can personalize your appointment and meet your specific dental needs.

Whether it's been six months or six years since your last dental appointment, we want to hear from you! Contact your family dentist, Dr. Martinez, in Orlando, FL to schedule a cleaning and an evaluation today!
