The Benefits Of A Summertime Dental Checkup
Welcome to another June edition of the Clearwater Dental Associates blog!
We hope that your summer is off to a great start. With all the fun you are probably having, don’t forget to schedule your next preventive dentistry appointment with us. Because going too long without a checkup can bring your good times to a screeching halt. Nobody wants that to happen to you!
Obviously, in-between visits, there are hygiene habits that you must carry out on your own. You already know that you should be brushing every day, twice or more. Beyond that, you must floss regularly to get tartar, plaque, bacteria, and food particles out of the areas around your teeth. Rinsing with mouthwash can also do a lot of good.
All of those things are wonderful. But they won’t ever be enough to keep you out of trouble in the long run. That’s why we are here for you.
You see, there are certain things that only dental professionals are equipped to handle on your behalf.
Tools & Technology Matter
At Clearwater Dental Associates, we have the all the tools, technology, and training to help keep tooth decay at bay, and detect cavities quickly if they should ever emerge. Why is that such a big deal?
That way we can address them right away and restore the health of your smile without subjecting you to root canals or extractions. Trust us, dental fillings are a much more pleasant way to go.
We can also help you avoid or conservatively treat gum disease. Gum disease is a condition that is caused by bacteria that has run wild in your mouth. It manifests initially as gingivitis. You would probably never notice it on your own. That is a real problem because if not caught early enough, gingivitis will give way to periodontal disease and your gums will start to pull away from your teeth, leaving them without any support structure. You will lose teeth but that won’t be the worst of it. Once that bacteria gets loose in your bloodstream, your total body health will be at risk.
That’s why you should make Clearwater Dental Associates a part of your summer plan. We are ready to keep your mouth clean and your smile looking great all through the year and all through your life. When you are here for your next appointment, we can also screen you for oral cancer, provide you with a fluoride treatment, or set you up with dental sealants, just to give you a little more protection.
