We know, we know. Who likes going to the dentist? Probably no one––But what if we told you that frequent trips to the dentist could reduce the threat of gum disease, tooth decay, and other long-term impediments to your oral health? Would that change your opinion?
With our incredible staff and friendly environment, we think you’ll be surprised at how much you actually enjoy your visit. Read on to discover our three reasons for visiting the dentist on a regular basis!
Reason #1: Detect Minor Issues Now––Avoid Major Issues Later
Routine trips to the dentist help in a number of ways––not the least of which is to detect minor issues now, and to take precautionary measures to avoid serious issues later. Visits to the dentist typically consist of two parts: Professional teeth-cleaning and a thorough oral check-up.
During the check-up portion of your visit, we’ll closely inspect your teeth for any signs of decay (i.e. cavities) and evaluate the overall health of your mouth (i.e. gums). A routine schedule to the dentist can ensure that small problems stay that way.
In the end, this will help you avoid financial and other physically painful disruptions––and if you already hate coming to the dentist, imagine being forced to as the result of an oral emergency.
Reason #2: Help You Smile Again
In addition to screening for tooth decay and other diseases, like oral cancer, regular trips to the dentist help our patients learn to smile again. The appearance of one’s teeth has a way of boosting self-confidence and personal happiness.
Tooth discolorations, chips, cracks, and missing teeth are nothing to make light of. While there are other reasons worth fixing some of these ailments, with a mouth full of pearly whites, you’ll be surprised how often you flash that beautiful smile in public!
Reason #3: Set a Good Example & Save Money
Staying attuned to your overall oral health is always a good reason for regular examinations and dental appointments. Trips to the dentist can instill a level of confidence, self-determination, and practical knowledge of proper oral treatments that you’ll have the ability to pass on helpful tips to others, namely your children.
Children are like parrots and repeat everything we do. If your child sees you taking good care of your teeth, they’ll be inclined to practice the same habits in their life. That’s right, you’ll even help them with their own anxieties about going to the dentist!
In the long run, this will help you and your children save money. By visiting the dentist twice a year, you’ll discover, and address potential problems before they require more costly and invasive treatments. Like your daily driver, with regular inspections, oil changes, and tire rotations, you’ll save yourself money and keep your car running smoothly for years to come.
