Brushing and flossing are not enough with dental check-ups  

Some people may believe that if they brush twice a day and floss regularly then they are the portrait of oral health. Even if an individual thinks that there is nothing wrong with their teeth, there may still be dental problems lingering under the surface. Recently, explained the importance of going to extra mile to ensure a healthy smile.

The news source spoke to dentist Ted Fornetti who explained that people need to visit a dental professional regularly, since they can spot people who may be at risk of developing a disease.

“By patients having a regular visit, we're able to see those things in X-rays, through clinical examination prior to them becoming big problems. We can catch them when they're small problems," said Fornetti, quoted by the news source.

Discovery Health states that visiting the dentist is about more than just getting a check-up. Dentists have special tools that are designed to clean teeth in ways that traditional toothbrushes cannot. The website adds that regular dental visits are particularly important for children, since dentists can administer a treatment that will help protect kids against cavities.
