Just because you do not have a toothache or other dental issue, it does not mean you do not need to visit a dentist regularly. If you haven't seen us in a while, we highly recommend visiting our office at Smile Craft Dental to get a dental exam as well as a dental cleaning. Many people believe a dental exam is a visit you should complete only when a toothache or other problem arises, but rather it is a regularly scheduled examination to keep your teeth and gums healthy. It ensures your teeth remain strong and last you for a lifetime, while also preventing potential problems.
Better Overall Dental Health
Those individuals who schedule and keep their regular dental check-ups find they suffer less from unwanted dental issues than those who fail to come in for regular dental checkups. Our dental professionals are trained and equipped to properly examine your mouth and ensure you do not have any early signs of tooth decay, gum disease, tooth damage, or oral cancer. By visiting us regularly you maintain better oral hygiene and prevent major general dental problems which come with the risk of more complications and also take longer to heal.
When you avoid visiting the dentist regularly, the result is that small dental issues become big dental problems that could result in the loss of a single tooth or multiple teeth. The goal of dental exams is to keep your teeth and gums healthy, preserving your natural teeth and keeping your smile.
Less Chance of Severe Dental Infections
When you come in for your regular dental check-ups with us, you decrease the chances of serious dental infections. Gum infections are common, though it can take people a long time to realize they are suffering from one. Once they realize they have a gum infection, if left untreated it can become a serious condition which requires a long course of treatment to correct.
Gum infections not only affect the health of your gums but also compromise the strength of the roots of your teeth making it difficult for you to keep your natural teeth healthy and strong. Once you lose a tooth due to gum infection, it is difficult to replace the missing tooth unless the infection is completely resolved because the orthodontic solution will not fit well when the infection is still active. The resulting consequence could be having no tooth in the area for a long time, meaning a complete loss of functionality.
Doesn't Break the Bank
While some dental procedures are costly, particularly for conditions that have been left untreated, regular dental exams with us can help you avoid these expensive procedures. Our dental exams are hassle-free and affordable. Having regular visits and cleanings are among the best ways to keep your mouth healthy and also ensure you do not have to spend huge amounts of money on maintaining good oral hygiene.
A simple solution is always the best. Do not wait until you are having a toothache or other dental problem, instead, schedule a dental exam with us today and keep your teeth and gums healthy. If you haven't visited us in the last six months please call us at 650-880-1269 or visit us at Smile Craft Dental so our dental professionals can examine your teeth and help you maintain exceptional oral hygiene.
