Taking Care Of Your Teeth In 2023
We know that life can be extremely busy for many of our patients. There always seems to be something going on, whether it’s a work event, a family obligation, time with friends, and the list goes on and on. Now that the craziness of the holiday season has passed and we are into the new year, it is a perfect time to evaluate the state of your oral health. When was the last time you and your loved ones visited our office for a hygiene examination and cleaning? If it has been longer than six months, you are definitely due for a visit! Read on to learn about why regular oral hygiene examinations and cleanings are a must.
Routine Dental Care is a Must
We see many of you so infrequently during the year. Much of your oral health care is placed on your shoulders. We have patients who take excellent care of their oral health and have strict oral hygiene routines. Sometimes, these patients are under the impression they do not need routine oral care in our office. That is not the case. Aside from thoroughly cleaning your teeth, we also inspect for problem areas in your mouth, such as decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. Certain conditions, such as gum disease, do not have many warning signs, and our team is able to diagnose the issue during a routine appointment.
When regular care is delayed or postponed, you are opening yourself up to unnecessary potential issues. During regular appointments, we can pinpoint a problem area and recommend treatment to remedy the situation before the problem progresses.
If you or a loved one needs a routine hygiene examination, be sure to contact our office located in Denton, MD to schedule an appointment. There is also no time like the present to schedule any appointments for a treatment we may have recommended during your last visit. Now that the holiday season has passed, it is the perfect time to get your oral health in tip-top shape for the new year.
