Why should I go to the dentist regularly?
Many people do not see a dentist on a regular basis. They only go when a problem arises, which is reactive rather than proactive. What do we mean? When you’re only visiting your dentist when trouble tolls, this is known as “crisis treatment.” Visiting the dentist regularly allows for you to be more proactive with your dental health and therefore creates an environment for “preventative treatment.”
What does a dental visit typically look like?
When you visit our offices, our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible. If you are in for your routine 6 months hygiene appointment, during your appointment you will be:
Thoroughly Examined for Signs of Oral Cancer
Checked for Decay and Gum Disease
Professionally Cleaned and Polished
Checked for Loose, Cracked, or Leaking Restorations/Fillings
As you can see, this is more than “just a cleaning” and is a valuable visit for your overall health. If any issues come to light during this appointment, our staff will discuss these with you and make a plan for next steps.
Why would my dentist take x-rays?
Many diseases of the teeth and surrounding tissues cannot be seen on the surface level. An x-ray examination may reveal:
Small areas of decay between the teeth or below existing restorations/fillings
Infections in the bone
Periodontal (gum) disease
Abscesses or cysts
Some types of tumors
Finding and treating dental problems at an early stage can save time and money, and oftentimes unnecessary discomfort.
