If you are one who avoids your dental checkups, this blog is to help you understand why doing so could harm and destroy your oral health. It is vital that you attend your six month checkups and participate in a daily oral hygiene routine if you wish to have a healthy, strong, and reliable smile for a lifetime. Many people fear or extremely dislike their six month checkups, but here are four reasons why you should never be afraid and why you should make these appointments a top priority:
• When you come into our office for your dental checkup, it allows us to get to know you and your smile a little better. Not only will we know all about your oral health, but we will also have the chance to create a loving and trusting relationship with you. The more you come into our office, the better friends we will be! Sooner than later, you will feel more comfortable in the dental chair.
• Each appointment gives your dentist the chance to prevent and treat every possible dental issue. If you come in every six months, the cleaning will prevent major problems and your dentist will be able to treat any issues at the early stages of development. If you refrain from coming in twice a year, you will find yourself coming into our office only when you have large, painful dental issues that need major treatment and possibly surgery.
• When you come in for your cleaning, our dental hygienists will deeply clean your teeth and remove the plaque from their surfaces with a special tool, which is a beneficial technique that eliminates the risks associated with periodontal disease. This technique can only be performed in the dental office, and it is a vital and extremely important process involved in maintaining and achieving a successful and strong oral health.
• During each appointment, our hygienists will deeply clean, floss, polish, and nourish your teeth and gums. This is a great and successful way of abolishing the bacteria, decay, and infection that are harming your teeth, gums, and underlying bone.
Because your teeth cleanings are extremely important, we encourage you to call our office today and schedule your six month checkup. We look forward to deeply cleaning and beautifying your smile!
