Now, if it’s been over a year, you definitely need to make an appointment for a dental checkup.
We are not trying to scold you or nag you about dental checkups. As dental professionals, we just know the importance of them for your overall oral health. There are real benefits to regular dental cleanings.
Wondering what they are?
Save Yourself from Tooth Decay
Many patients are surprised to hear they are suffering the early stages of tooth decay. Caught early enough, teeth are saved and intensive dental procedures are unneeded. However, individuals who have waited years to see their dentist until they are in pain end up having to undergo equally painful procedures to repair the damage. You can save yourself from tooth decay, and wasted time and money just by getting regular dental checkups.
Look Better to Feel Better
When your teeth start to get covered in tartar, people will start to see it. You will too if you take a good look at your teeth in the mirror. A dental checkup includes removing that unsightly tartar, so your teeth stay looking and feeling clean.
In addition to your teeth looking clean, you will feel better overall. Have you ever left a dentist appointment in the past feeling just a little bit better because you took care of yourself? It felt good, didn’t it? That good feeling keeps going when you smile confidently and know that you look beautiful with your well cared for teeth.
Protect Your Health
Did you know that your oral health is connected to your physical health? Yes! The University of California at Berkley conducted a study that found regular dental care reduces the risk of heart disease by a third for women.
In addition, there are over 100 diseases that can be identified just by looking in your mouth. With regular dental checkups, your Rock Canyon dentist can be sure that you don’t have any of those signs.
