If you are waiting until you have a toothache to visit our dentist, this is the wrong approach to dental care. We recommend routine dental care to avoid having serious dental health issues that require major treatments. While it is possible to have an injury to a tooth that requires an emergency visit to our dentist, most of the dental problems that we see are caused by neglecting to visit our dentist for many years. Dentists have a standard rule that you should have a checkup every six months along with a professional cleaning. Our dentist knows that patients will rarely develop a large cavity or gingivitis in only six months. There are several benefits from having routine dental care for your gums and teeth. First, you can maintain a beautiful smile with your own natural teeth longer when you have your teeth cleaned every six months to remove plaque. It is important to remember that this doesn’t replace daily oral hygiene with brushing and flossing, but it will remove plaque from hard to reach areas of your mouth. An additional benefit from professional teeth cleaning is that you are less likely to develop gum disease that can infect your alveolar bones and jawbone. The removal of plaque will also help to keep your breath fresh so that you won’t offend others.
Protect Your Internal Organs from the Dangers of Bacteria
When you visit our dentist for your checkup, you will require a complete examination, and we may also obtain X-rays of your teeth. If we notice a problem with a tooth, it is often easy to fix without any sedation or painkillers. You might have a tiny cavity that requires a small filling with a color-matching resin, or alternatively, you can have a tooth that has a small chip that requires a bonding process. These procedures will protect the underlying layers of teeth to avoid having bigger problems later. Keeping your teeth and gums in great condition can also protect you from other health conditions because we are removing harmful bacteria from your mouth.
Have More Confidence with Perfect Teeth
Having a gorgeous smile can also have mental benefits because you will have more self-confidence. Other people are attracted to nice smiles that indicate that you care about your overall health. If you have attractive teeth, you may feel markedly better about applying for jobs or socializing with others. By visiting our dentist, we can make a customized mouth guard to protect your teeth while you play sports. These protective mouth guards are also suitable while you are using a bicycle or a scooter to avoid any damage to your gums or teeth.
