Your dentist and orthodontist, Dr. Paul Takemoto, strongly encourages you to attend your dental checkups every six months. To tell you why this is necessary, our orthodontic team is happy to list the reasons. First, your dental checkups are not your routine orthodontic adjustment appointments. Your dental checkups involve a deep cleaning and smile treatment that can help you have a top-notch oral health. Additional reasons include the following:

Dental checkups help you have a strong and healthy smile. The cleaning treatment provided removes dangerous bacteria that promote cavity development and gum disease. The fluoride treatment provided for your teeth nourishes your tooth enamel and helps your smile avoid enamel erosion during your orthodontic journey.

Dental checkups help you treat dental issues quickly. Your dentist will examine your entire mouth for dental issues during the exam portion of the appointment. If any issues are found, we will do what needs to be done to restore your oral health so you can have a successful orthodontic journey and a top-notch smile.
