Dental implants, root canals, porcelain veneers – it can be so easy to get caught up in all the more complex procedures of dentistry that sometimes, we forget the basics. Many people assume that if they’re brushing and flossing the recommended amount every day, they’ll have perfectly healthy teeth and gums for years to come. Sadly, this can often be untrue. All kinds of factors, from age to genetics to even sneaky bits of bacteria that floss can’t reach, can lead to oral problems and cause crucial damages if left ignored or untreated. This is why regularly scheduled check-ups with a dentist are so important for your smile. Dr. Paul Caputo is committed to providing you with comfortable, personalized care that is sure to keep your teeth healthy and happy for years to come – that’s why he’s happy to offer comprehensive check-ups as part of his general dentistry services here at his Naperville, IL office.
The American Dental Association recommends that you visit the dentist at least twice a year, and our team couldn’t agree more. At your biannual check-up, we’ll inspect your gum tissue thoroughly for any signs of potential problems. In addition, Dr. Caputo will carefully inspect each of your teeth for cracks or decay. He’ll also make sure any past dental work you’ve had done, such as crowns or fillings, are still holding up. We can even replace old metal dental work with brand-new, tooth-colored alternatives, if you’d like!
With comprehensive check-ups, our team can catch problems of all kinds at their earliest stages, saving you potential pain, time, and money. Both gum disease and oral canceroften manifest nearly invisibly, making it difficult for an untrained eye to tell that there’s anything to worry about. With Dr. Caputo’s help, we can treat these conditions safely and effectively before they cause permanent damage.
