The American Dental Association recommends you see your dentist at least twice each year for a checkup. At your checkup, Dr. Calderwood will inspect your soft tissues for oral cancer, periodontal disease, and other problems. He will also look at each tooth in your mouth to assess problems like tooth decay or cracks as well as old dental work. Sometimes, old dental work wears out and needs to be replaced. He will be happy to update metal fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns with tooth-colored alternatives.
Prevention is the Best Medicine
By looking for trouble every six months, we can often reduce your potential for large dental problems. For instance, left untreated, a small cavity can grow to destroy an entire tooth and spread to the surrounding teeth. A cracked tooth can cause pain or completely break off and create additional problems. Furthermore, advanced gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss for American adults, and oral cancer causes more than 10,000 deaths each year. Caught and treated early, these diseases can easily be controlled.
