There are several routines that you need to stick to lead a healthy life. Regular dental examinations are part of that routine, and for you to have good oral health, you must keep up your appointments with us. In case you have missed your dental appointment or you have forgotten about it, you should call or visit us at Ephrata Family Dentistry so we can schedule a dental exam and check your oral health promptly. A dental exam doesn't necessarily have to be an appointment you keep up with only when you have dental problems. It is an appointment you should have at least twice a year, so you can promote healthy teeth and gums, plus avoid most dental issues.
Maintaining Better Oral Hygiene
Our professionals ensure that they examine your dental health thoroughly to eliminate the chances of any dental problems, even if they are small. A regular dental examination not only helps maintain better oral hygiene, but it enables us to teach you better habits that will help to preserve your natural teeth and gums, and keep them healthy over the long-term.
Although brushing twice a day and flossing after every meal is something you should follow daily, there are times you need expert advice, and this is why visiting us twice a year is crucial. This helps eliminate or manage any dental issues that may arise.
Predict Dental Ailments
Recognizing dental problems at an early stage is far more beneficial than having to treat them when it has gone too far. When a cavity is ignored, it turns into a root canal which can be painful, and requires more invasive procedures to treat. A simple cavity, on the other hand, can be treated with a small filling and can often be done in just one sitting.
Our professionals ensure that every time you visit us, we take proper care to identify any dental issues that might cause concerns later on and nip them in the bud. This is not something that comes in handy only with regards to small dental issues, but also helps with major issues, like a gum infection, which needs to be treated as early as possible to avoid complications.
It is difficult for people to identify gum problems at an early stage, but our professionals are trained to recognize the early symptoms and thereby provide treatment before it gets worse. When gum diseases are left unattended, they can turn into massive problems and spread infection as far as your bone and soft tissue. This is almost impossible to treat. When it comes to choosing between natural teeth and dentures or implants, it’s always better to choose the former. Maintaining your natural smile is easier when you visit us regularly.
If you haven't visited us in the last six months, we highly suggest that you pick up the phone and give us a call at (223) 264-3020 or visit us at Ephrata Family Dentistry so we can examine your teeth and gums properly and keep your mouth healthy and clean.
