Why You Want to Schedule Routine Dentist Visits
Did you know that keeping up with your routine dental visits is one of the most important things you can do for your oral health? Keep reading to learn why you may want to think twice about pushing off your routine dentist visits.
Much of dentistry is focused on prevention practices. During your routine visits, we will take a good look at your teeth to survey your current oral health. We will make sure that your teeth look healthy and look for any signs of damage, discomfort, or potential risks. We want to identify any problems as soon as we can to treat the area or create a long-term solution to keep your teeth healthy and strong.
As you have heard us say before, brushing and flossing are the most important things you can do to keep your teeth healthy! Visiting the dentist every four to six months gives us an opportunity to clean your teeth even more than is normally possible at home. This will help prevent any plaque buildup on your teeth, which can cause long-term gum disease. Regular cleanings also help prevent cavities from forming in those hard-to-reach areas between your teeth.
We believe it’s essential for you to understand the current state of your oral health and the best practices to keep your teeth healthy. When you come in for your regular dentist visits, we provide the opportunity for open conversations about your dental health. We’ll discuss any concerns we may have and what we believe is the best course of action. We’ll also answer any questions about your dental care. We never want you to feel like you’re in the dark about your dental health.
Added Benefits of Routine Dentist Visits
Keeping up with your routine dentist visits will not only help you maintain long-term oral health, but it should also help you keep up with your daily at-home practices as well. No one wants to visit the dentist and learn that they have cavities. Knowing that you will be visiting the dentist’s office every six months should help you remember to brush and floss daily! Another benefit to routine dentist visits is that dentist visits should become easy when you maintain a healthy mouth! When you’re working hard to take care of your teeth, visiting the dentist should be more about checkups and less about uncomfortable procedures.
