You may know that it’s important for you to brush for two minutes at a time twice a day if you’re hoping to keep your teeth strong. It’s also important for you to floss every day. However, did you know that you should also visit your dentist twice every year? These appointments are actually quite important, and skipping them could ultimately lead to serious consequences?
You see, these treatments are extremely important because plaque can lead to tartar, which you won’t be able to remove at home. However, we’ll do more than clean your teeth. We’ll also inspect your smile for signs of potential issues.
One issue we’ll look for is gum disease, which you might struggle to recognize on your own. You see, many patients have gum disease but don’t recognize the problem. This is understandable since the signs of gum disease can actually be difficult to recognize. Fortunately, our team can identify these issues, as well as the signs of oral cancer.
Another issue we’ll search for is tooth decay, which is also quite prevalent. Tooth decay, such as cavities, should be treated as quickly as possible before they can become more serious. You see, if you don’t address tooth decay quickly, you could have to treat problems with root canal therapy or a tooth extraction.
If you’d like to learn more about tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, or need regular checkups, we invite you to give Complete Care Dental a call at 610.833.1919. Dr. Neil Dhillon and the rest of our team will also be glad to offer you personalized advice. We’re eager to receive your call soon.
