Did you know, dental checkups do more than check your teeth? They also check for other health conditions like gum disease and oral cancer. Here at Dr Thomas E. WOLD Dentistry in Bend, Oregon, we strive to keep your smile in tip-top shape and provide you with the best care possible.

Dental checkups are vital to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. If you go too long without seeing your dentist, you could be subjecting your smile to a wide variety of oral health care risks. Some of these risks include tooth loss, gum disease, bone loss, and even oral cancer.

That is why, having your dentist give you a checkup regularly is important to keeping your smile safe from harmful conditions. Along with dental checkups, having your oral hygiene routine can also help keep the fight of gum disease and other bacteria from invading your smile.

If you brush for two minutes a day at least twice a day, you could help your dentist by avoiding cavities and gum disease. Using mouthwash can also help you to kill bacteria in your mouth.

If you have questions about your oral health, or feel it’s time for a dental checkup, please call us today at 541.389.1301 and make an appointment with Dr. Thomas E. Wold. Our friendly staff is always ready to address any questions or concerns you have pertaining to your smile.
