What’s So Important About Dental Checkups?

May 20, 2015

We are quite aware that some patients feel committed to their dental care simply because they know we have their best interests at heart – while other patients do not fully understand the significance of prevention. Actually, we are always happy to speak with individuals who are uninformed about the importance of treatments like checkups because we believe knowledge provides power. The more you know about caring for your teeth, the easier it will be for you to maintain a comfortable, healthy smile that you are proud to show off to the world around you. Ready to learn more about why dental checkups are so important? Look over the following:

They’re Simple

If you have ever felt at all anxious about your upcoming dental checkup, there is truly no need. This is a simple, straightforward experience that includes a visual exam, during which we will look in your mouth. Then, we may incorporate some advanced dental technology to take a closer look. Thanks to advances in technology, whether we take digital X-rays of your smile or use a VELscope to screen you for oral cancer, you will find that our equipment offers exceptional comfort and convenience.

They’re Extremely Effective

Your dental checkup will seem quite simple and efficient. Fortunately, the results are also extremely effective. Here’s why: You know your smile and your health very well but many oral diseases and disorders begin developing long before you recognize them. During checkups, our technology and experience allow us to detect the earliest stages of a diverse set of concerns. From the early stages of cavities to the pre-cancerous phase of oral cancer, we will recognize the beginning of an issue long before obvious symptoms occur. This means we can then quickly offer treatment and assist you in enjoying a speedy, full recovery before damage occurs.
