Regular visits to the dentist may seem like a bit much. After all, why do you need to come into our Elite Dentistry PC office every six months if you’re carrying out a great oral health routine on your own at home?

That’s a valid question to ask, which is why we want to answer it for you here.

Deep cleaning

By far and away the most beneficial part of visiting Dr. Mohamed Waheed on a regular basis is the deep cleaning you get while in his office. This can involve tooth scaling and root planing, as well as a more enhance fluoride treatment than what you can achieve at home. The fact of the matter is that you can’t clean your teeth as effectively as a dentist can, and if you want the best oral health possible, you’ll come visit the dentist regularly.

Scanning for cavities

Most cavities can’t be felt until they’re large enough to cause a serious problem. However, when you come in for regular checkups you’ll have X-Rays taken of your teeth that can show cavities long before they’re felt. This allows Dr. Mohamed Waheed to prevent them from spreading and save the integrity of your teeth.

If you’re wondering why it’s important to attend your regularly scheduled dental appointments, we hope the above information was helpful. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at (630) 592.8116.
