The American Dental Association recommends that people visit the dentist at least twice yearly for checkups. Routine visits allow us to identify dental health issues and other medical conditions, including nutritional or vitamin deficiencies, diabetes, and hormonal irregularities. At these appointments, Dr. Jones or Dr. Harris will evaluate your soft tissues and look for signs of oral cancer, periodontal disease, and other problems. Your general dentist will also assess each tooth to discover problems like tooth decay or cracks, as well as old dental work that may need repairs or replacement.
A lifetime of good oral health begins in childhood, and that’s why we offer a range of pediatric dental services. Dr. Jones and Dr. Harris enjoy helping children establish good oral hygiene habits to increase their chances of maintaining their natural teeth for life. Bringing your children in for regular checkups every six months also ensures that your Mansfield dentists can spot problems with decay, tooth eruption, or jaw development early enough that they can be treated promptly and conservatively.
By evaluating your teeth and gums every six months, we can often reduce the odds of larger dental problems. Advanced gum disease is the number one cause of adult tooth loss in this country, and oral cancer causes over 7,500 deaths each year. Early detection allows Dr. Jones and Dr. Harris to control these problems and protect your smile. At your regular visits, we may also suggest oral care tips to maximize home care and help you maintain optimum dental health.
