Did you know dental checkups are vital to your oral health? Well, it’s true! By having Dr. Stephen Woodard look over your smile every few months, your smile could avoid things like gum disease and other conditions that put your smile at risk.

Cavities are common and if left untreated, you could lose a tooth. If the bacteria spreads, not only will you lose a tooth, but you can lose bone loss and obtain gum disease. That is why having a dentist here at Stephen Woodard give your smile a check every few months is vital to your oral health.

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.

As you can see, there are serious factors to consider when it comes to taking care of your smile. If you feel it’s time for your oral health check up, please call us today at 509-924-8585 to set up an appointment in Spokane Valley, Washington. We are always happy to help you in any way we can.
