Remember to visit the general dentist too during your orthodontic treatment!

If you’re brushing your teeth twice a day during your orthodontic treatment, Dr. Allen Davis and the team at Davis Orthodontics think that’s wonderful! But, don’t forget that it’s also important for you to visit your general dentist every six months, or as recommended, in addition to brushing your teeth and flossing (and visiting the office of Dr. Allen Davis for regular adjustments, of course).

Dental checkups are crucial for maintaining good oral health. Your general dentist can check for problems that might not be seen or felt, detect cavities and early signs of tooth decay, as well as catch and treat oral health problems early. During an oral exam, your dentist can also check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. Checkups will also include a thorough teeth cleaning and polishing.

If you have not been to the dentist in the last six months, let us know during your next adjustment visit and we will provide a few great references in the Escondido and San Diego, CA areas!
