Exams, X-Rays, & Cleaning
Regardless of your age, your dental health is extremely important. Around 50% of Americans don’t see the dentist each year, even though regular dental exams and good dental health can prevent dental disease as well as other diseases.
Regular visits to the dentist’s office can help identify oral health problems early. This usually results in simpler, quicker, and affordable treatment. It also helps in preventing problems from developing. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. Additionally, some diseases and medical conditions first appear in the mouth and visiting the dentist can identify these problems as well.
A dental cleaning prevents cavities and gum disease. It boosts your overall health and has the potential to save you money in the long run. A regular dental cleaning freshens your breath and brightens your smile.
Some of the more popular signs that you MUST see a dentist may include sensitivity to hot or cold, puffy gums, or gums bleeding when flossing or brushing. Others may be that you have medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or eating disorders. All these require that you see the dentist on a regular basis.
Even when these symptoms are not present you may have dental health or other undetected medical health problems that the dentist will be able to diagnose. Keeping the mouth healthy is an important piece of your overall health.
Based on your dental health and health history the dentist can recommend how many times a year you should visit them. Some people may visit only once or twice while others may require more visits. Your dentist will create a customized plan for you.
