The Importance of Regular Dental Checkups

Maintaining your natural teeth is closely linked to regular dental visits. To keep a healthy, full set of teeth, making dentist appointments a priority is essential.

A 2014 Gallup Poll study revealed a significant relationship between the frequency of dental visits and the rate of adult tooth loss across states. For instance, Connecticut saw 74 percent of its adults visiting the dentist within the last year, coinciding with a low adult tooth loss rate of only 9 percent. Conversely, West Virginia, where only 57 percent of adults had dental checkups in the same timeframe, experienced a high rate of complete tooth loss at 37 percent.

While we're equipped to restore lost teeth with dental implants, bridges, or dentures, our primary goal is to prevent such losses through regular, preventative dental care. After all, preserving your natural teeth is not only less costly but also less time-consuming than undergoing restorative treatments.

Avoid Toothaches with Preventive Care

Scheduling a dental checkup is key to avoiding the discomfort of toothaches and infections, which are common issues we address for patients across the Tempe area.

Toothaches alone can cause significant discomfort, leading to missed workdays. The Center for Disease Control reports a staggering loss of 164 million work hours annually due to dental-related health problems. If your calendar is always full and you think you can't fit in a dentist appointment, think again. 

Skipping dental checkups can lead to more severe health conditions that might require you to take time off work later on. Preventative dental care is crucial in reducing your risk of tooth decay, infections, and gum disease, helping you maintain your oral health and keep your schedule uninterrupted.

What to Expect During Your Dental Checkup

At Desert Breeze Dentistry, we pride ourselves on being a gentle and caring practice. We understand the anxiety that sometimes accompanies dental visits and are dedicated to making your experience as comfortable and relaxing as possible.

Dental Cleaning

Your checkup begins with a professional dental cleaning, where we remove plaque and tartar buildup that regular brushing and flossing might miss. This cleaning helps prevent gum disease and tooth decay, maintaining your oral health.


Following the cleaning, we conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. We look for signs of any potential issues, such as cavities, gum disease, and other oral health concerns. Our goal is to identify and address any issues early on, preventing more significant problems down the road.


To get a comprehensive view of your dental health, we may take X-rays. This step is crucial for detecting issues that aren't visible to the naked eye, including problems below the gum line, between teeth, or under existing fillings.

Oral Cancer Screening

An often-overlooked part of dental health, oral cancer screenings are a routine part of our dental checkups. We examine your mouth for any signs of oral cancer, ensuring early detection and treatment.

Asked Questions

What is a dental checkup, and why is it important?

A dental checkup is a routine examination of your teeth, gums, and mouth by a professional dentist to detect any potential issues early. It's essential for maintaining oral health, preventing dental diseases, and ensuring your smile stays bright and healthy.

How often should I have a dental checkup?

The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist at least twice a year for checkups and cleanings. However, some individuals may need more frequent visits depending on their oral health status.

What happens during a dental cleaning?

During a dental cleaning, a dental hygienist will remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, both above and below the gum line. This process helps prevent cavities, gingivitis, and periodontal disease, and it also includes polishing your teeth for a smoother finish.

Are dental X-rays necessary?

Dental X-rays are a crucial part of a dental checkup, allowing dentists to see beneath the surface of your mouth. They help identify problems like cavities between teeth, impacted teeth, and jawbone damage. The frequency of X-rays depends on your individual health needs.

What is preventive dental care?

Preventive dental care includes practices aimed at maintaining good oral health. This includes regular dental checkups, cleanings, proper brushing and flossing techniques, and a healthy diet. Preventive care helps avoid serious and costly dental problems.

Can dental checkups detect oral cancer?

Yes, part of a comprehensive dental checkup includes screening for oral cancer. Early detection is key in the treatment of oral cancer, making regular dental visits critical for your overall health.

What should I do between each dental visit?

Between visits, maintain good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing daily, eating a balanced diet, and avoiding tobacco products. These practices help prevent dental problems and keep your smile healthy.

How can I overcome anxiety about dental visits?

Many people experience dental anxiety. Communicating your fears to your dentist can help them adapt the treatment to your needs. Techniques like guided imagery, deep breathing, and potentially sedation can make your visit more comfortable.

What are the signs I need to see a dentist immediately?

If you experience severe toothache, swollen gums, a broken tooth, or have lost a filling or crown, it's important to see a dentist as soon as possible. These could be signs of a serious issue that requires immediate attention.

Are dental checkups covered by insurance?

Most dental insurance plans cover two checkups and cleanings per year as part of preventive care. However, coverage can vary, so it's important to check with your insurance provider.
