As children, many of us learned of the importance of regular dental exams and cleanings. However, for some reason, adults tend to disregard the importance of these bi-annual visits. Not only do these appointments provide important insight into the health of your teeth and gums, but they can also save you time, money, and unnecessary pain due to unaddressed oral health problems.
At Magnolia Family Dental Care, we recommend that each of our patients schedules a dental exam and teeth cleaning appointment twice a year, regardless of their age.
We know that you live a busy life. Setting aside the time for a dental exam and cleaning twice each year can seem unnecessary. However, there are several reasons why these biannual appointments are one of the most important aspects of maintaining not only your oral health but also your overall health and well-being.
Even our patients with the most aggressive oral hygiene routine need a little professional cleaning assistance. Although daily brushing and flossing play a large role in the health of your teeth, there are certain tasks that can only be accomplished using professional tools.
During your teeth cleaning appointment, our team ensures that each and every surface of your teeth and gums are cleaned to perfection. This goes a long way in providing you with a bright, healthy smile!
Your dental exam is also the perfect time to detect tooth decay in its beginning stages. When tooth decay is caught early on, we are often able to easily reverse its effects on your smile. Not only does this save you discomfort, but it also saves you money on intense dental procedures.
One of the most important parts of any appointment is the dental exam. During this part of your visit, we will carefully inspect your teeth, gums, and oral tissue to assess your risk for oral disease or cancer. Sadly, these conditions are often hard to detect with the untrained eye.
Catching oral cancers or other diseases in the beginning stages provides you with more treatment alternatives and a higher rate of success in treatment. For this reason, we believe biannual dental exams are crucial to our patient’s overall health.
Additionally, if you notice anything out of the ordinary with your teeth or gums, it is important to schedule a dental exam regardless of how long it has been since your last visit. When it comes to oral healthcare, it is always much easier to prevent a problem than to treat one.
Not only does your dental exam provide insight into your oral health, but it also provides valuable information about your overall health. There are several strong correlations between oral hygiene and lowered risk of stroke, heart attack, and other serious complications. Take care of your body and improve your quality of life by making an appointment for your next dental exam and cleaning.
The entire team at Magnolia Family Dental Care considers it our privilege to care for your oral healthcare needs. Taking care of your oral health through healthy habits and routine dental exams provides you with more than just a healthy smile. Contact our team today to schedule your next appointment!
