Do you feel as if twice yearly dental appointments are unwarranted? Have you had no cavities in years and thus feel that the professional cleanings are overrated? Do you stay away because of a lack of dental insurance or because you have not yet found a provider you like? If so, you should take some time to learn about these three major reasons why you should regularly take time out of your life for visits to your local dental office.
To Clean the Teeth
The most obvious reason why you should visit your local dental office regularly is to get your teeth cleaned. You may argue that you brush your teeth two or three times each day and are vigilant in flossing your teeth at least daily as well. You may even use a special water flossing device or an electric toothbrush. However, none of these excellent habits or devices can take the place of an experienced dental professional who will clean your teeth thoroughly, getting rid of hidden tartar and cleaning beneath the gums as well. These regular, thorough cleanings can help protect your teeth from cavities and gums from inflammation.
To Find Hidden Problems
In addition, your regular dental examinations can reveal underlying problems that have the possibility of turning into larger problems over time. By catching them early and treating them immediately, our dentist can save you from such issues as pain, root canals and lost teeth. Using X-rays, our dentist will be able to see irregularities inside your teeth as well as problems with the positions of teeth beneath the gums and issues with the jaw.
