Maintaining good oral health can help reduce the risk of serious health problems.
To impress others, individuals do their best to make our teeth and smile beautiful. Some are take extra time to clean their teeth perfectly. Others use recommended oral hygiene products for better results. You may be doing a great job of cleaning your teeth and mouth at home but it doesn’t end there. You must have regular dental visits.

Ever wonder why our dentists is so animate about reminding you to come back for a dental visit? It is because a regular dental visit to us plays an important role in the maintenance of your teeth, gums, and mouth. At home you don’t have the right equipment to check deep within your teeth, so it is extremely important that you ensure to visit our office at least a couple of times each year to get a thorough checkup. Our objective is to look after you and ensure that you maintain excellent dental health.

Many individuals often go years without a visit to their dentist. Others experience ‘Dental Fear’ or ‘Dental Phobia.’ A phobia is an intense, unreasonable fear. People can fear a specific activity, object or situation. In this case, it is the fear to dentistry, or the fear to receive a dental care. For others it is a money issue. Many others say that they don’t need to go to the dentist because there’s nothing wrong with their teeth. So the question is what is the importance of a regular dental visit?

A part of a thorough dental examination is checking your teeth for tooth decay. During your checkup appointment with us, our dentist will likely evaluate the health of your gums, perform a neck and head examination, and examine your mouth for any indications of oral disease and deficiencies. Our dentist will then clean your teeth and stress the importance of you maintaining good oral hygiene at home between visits.
The main reason to visit our dentist regularly is to avoid dental issues such as tooth decay and gum problems. These issues might be minor at first, but these can lead to much serious problems and even major dental concerns if they are not diagnosed early. So, regular visits to our office can help you in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of these conditions.

If gum disease is left untreated, it can be costly. There is also a connection between periodontal disease and heart disease. This is because the bacteria caused by the periodontal disease can enter someone’s bloodstream and attach to your heart's blood vessels, and can even cause blood clots. Therefore, plaque buildup caused by periodontal disease can cause the heart's blood vessels to swell and lead to heart disease.

When your teeth seem to be fine and you have excellent oral hygiene, visiting our dentists at least twice is almost like having an insurance policy. Even if it all appears to be fine on the outside, there may be underlying dental care problems that only our dentist can diagnose. So we encourage you to have a regular checkup and examination with us so you can keep your smile healthy and shining for a lifetime.

We truly enjoy seeing the effect that having a bright smile has on our patient’s lives. We believe that a healthy smile begins with knowledge. That is why one of our goals is to help elevate each patient’s dental awareness and to provide you with the best tools to maintain dental health at its optimum.
