It is very important to regularly visit your Gilbert dentist for a dental exam. Even if you don’t think that you have any special issues, your mouth and teeth should be checked at least once a year by a dentist or dental surgeon. If know that you have issues with your teeth, it is recommended that you have checkups more frequently.
Schedule a Dental Exam As Soon As Possible
A dental exam is the first step in good dental health. We encourage all current and prospective patients to visit us and review any dental issues they may have. Your oral hygienist or dentist can help you with any dental assistance you may need.
During a dental exam, your dentist can identify any issues with your teeth that may have just started to occur. Like all health issues, the earlier you catch them, the more likely that you are to avoid any future trouble. In case that your dentist diagnoses issues she or he will advise you on what preventative treatments you should follow, if any. You should be aware of the fact that any dental issues not treated early may evolve in bigger issues. A smaller problem is always cheaper and easier to treat than a larger one.
Be aware that there are some health problems that manifest symptoms orally. Your dental specialist can also identify these problems. For example, if you have high blood pressure, it can show up in your mouth as well in the form of swelling in the gums.
Oral Hygiene and Dental Care
It is very important to take good care of your gums and teeth. Your dentist or dental hygienist can assist you with this, obviously. They can treat diseases of the gums such as gingivitis and help you maintain good dental health. Good oral health can also have an impact with your health overall. Gingivitis can be a contributing factor to heart disease, did you know that?
So, remember, that oral health is often one of the most neglected aspects of people’s lives, and it shouldn’t be. If you’re worried about dental pain, talk to your dentist. She or he has access to techniques that can either reduce or in some cases even eliminate any pain you might experience.
So brush and floss daily. Make sure you brush your tongue as well. And most important of all? Call your Gilbert dentist and schedule an appointment.
