Regular dental visits at Inspiration Dental in Riverview, FL can help you maintain a healthy mouth. Without proper oral care, your teeth and gums are subject to infections, decay, and disease. As always, prevention costs less than intervention. Learn the importance of visiting your dentist on a regular basis and following his or her instructions on how to maintain a healthy smile.
Dental exams help dentists identify and eliminate several potential problems. During a visual exam, the dentist can’t see the problems manifesting underneath the gums. A pain could be the source of an infection, a chipped tooth or a loose filling. In any case, your dentist will perform a thorough examination, and prescribe the best course of treatment.
Depending on the condition of your teeth or gum, you should see our dentist twice a year. However, if you are experiencing any oral problems, the dentist might want you to visit more often until your problem is resolved. If you pass your dental exam with little or no risk of cavities or gum disease, the dentist may schedule you to come in once a year for an annual exam.
Regular exams decrease the likelihood of cavities, oral cancer, and other gum diseases. Preventative treatment costs less, and it can save you thousands of dollars in dental work. Men, women, and children who are at risk or have been diagnosed with diabetes, need to follow up with a dentist on a regular basis to ensure they are getting the best oral care possible.
