3 Reasons You Should Visit the Dentist Regularly
The American Dental Association recommends visiting the dentist about every six months, but many people find it hard to fit these appointments into their schedules. Before you push your next appointment to the bottom of your to-do list, we can give you three good reasons to make your checkup with Dr. Frame a priority.
1. A dental checkup is also a general wellness checkup.
Your mouth often shows early signs of general health issues before the rest of your body does, including symptoms of digestive disorders, systemic conditions, anemia, vitamin deficiencies, bacterial infections, dehydration and other health problems. During your appointment, we may spot symptoms of these issues and help you get treatment earlier.
2. A dental checkup includes a screening for oral cancer.
Precancerous and cancerous lesions can be difficult to spot, but early detection and treatment can be lifesaving. We perform regular screenings so that you can get the treatment you need.
3. A dental checkup and professional cleaning will leave your teeth squeaky clean and pearly white.
This kind of thorough cleaning is not just for cosmetic purposes; it will also help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
At your checkup, Dr. Frame cleans your teeth using special tools to remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth, including those areas you may not be able to reach easily. We then use another tool and a gritty paste to polish your teeth, removing superficial stains and leaving your teeth beautifully white.
