The Importance of Regular Dental Appointments

Everyone knows they are supposed to see the dentist twice a year, but you may still wonder why it’s necessary if you maintain good oral hygiene. While brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing every day are essential steps in your oral hygiene regimen, seeing your dentist for routine examinations is still just as necessary.

Dr. Cappy Sinclair is a Virginia Beach dentist that treats patients who need routine cleanings and those who have more complicated or cosmetic concerns. If you require routine care or have noticed developing oral health problems, call Dr. Sinclair’s Laskin Road office at (757) 453-7657 or his Lynnhaven office at (757) 216-9914. You may also request an appointment online.

Routine Dental Exams

Dr. Sinclair is trained to identify potential problems that the average person wouldn’t be able to spot, especially with x-rays, and professional dental cleaning can remove any hardened plaque buildup from your teeth that brushing alone cannot remove.

When tartar builds up on the teeth, it can bring on tooth decay and gum disease, both of which have been linked to an increased poor overall health. Some health problems can also announce themselves in your mouth first, such as autoimmune disorders, and your dentist can assist you with finding the problem and choosing the right treatment.

Repair Your Smile

If you’re injured and there was a blow to the mouth or teeth, you’ll want to visit one of our Virginia Beach offices to be checked out. Even if a tooth gets knocked out, there’s still a possibility of saving the tooth. We will schedule emergency appointments for cases like this.

You may also want to consult with Dr. Sinclair to discuss the possible benefits of cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental implants to replace damaged or missing teeth, porcelain veneers to cover damaged enamel, or invisible braces to correct misaligned teeth. Dr. Sinclair consults with patients individually to determine the best cosmetic treatments to meet his patients’ goals and needs. Some cosmetic procedures help keep your teeth healthy in addition to improving their aesthetics.
