Why You Shouldn’t Skip Dental Checkups
When was the last time you visited our office for a hygiene examination and dental cleaning? If you can’t recall or it has been quite awhile, we want you to call and schedule your next appointment today. Believe it or not, we understand everyone is busy, especially with everything going on during the past year. It seems like schedules are constantly changing, and it has been easy to forget to schedule your appointment, or maybe you needed to cancel your appointment and haven’t rescheduled. No matter the reason, delaying hygiene visits and needed treatments can cause major consequences. Read on to find out more.
Why Visit Our Office?
You might be thinking, “I brush my teeth properly, always floss, and consistently use mouthwash, so why schedule a hygiene examination?” We want to remind you that we do more than just clean your teeth when you come for a routine visit. We also monitor and check for tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. These are all conditions that are impossible to monitor or check on your own and can become extremely serious if not detected and treated in the early stages.
We know that our office isn’t always our patients’ favorite place to visit. However, we especially want to encourage those who were recommended a treatment such as a filling for a cavity, root canal, or treatment to help with gum disease to schedule their appointments right away. Ignoring important treatments can cause expensive and severe repercussions. Dental issues do not go away on their own and will always progress to a more serious complication. If you experience nervous feelings when coming to our office, please contact us. We offer various sedation options to help you relax during your treatment.
If you have not visited our office in the past 6 months for a hygiene examination, we encourage you to call today and schedule your next appointment in our office located in Denton, MD. We want you to live your healthiest life possible, and one of the best ways to do that is through a healthy mouth. We look forward to seeing you soon!
