It’s Time For Some Spring Cleaning!
When was the last time you visited our office for an oral hygiene examination and cleaning? Now that spring has arrived, there is no better time to schedule your next appointment. You can consider it the “spring cleaning” of your mouth. Spring cleaning is a common term for the activity of organizing and deep cleaning during this season. When you visit our office for a hygiene examination and cleaning, we do a deep clean of the mouth, removing any lingering plaque and bacteria that have built up since your last visit. Failure to schedule routine appointments can lead to serious complications with your oral health. Read on to learn more.
Avoid a Dental Emergency
Routine dental care is extremely important for your current and future oral health. We only have one set of teeth to last us a lifetime. We owe it to ourselves to care for our teeth properly. Not only does this include brushing and flossing, but it also includes regular dental care visits as well. Most patients are recommended to visit every four to six months, depending on their previous diagnosed conditions.
During routine oral hygiene examination appointments, we look for and monitor any problem areas in the mouth. If there is progression from visit to visit, we will recommend a treatment to remedy the problem. When routine dental care is avoided or postponed, the decay or problem area is left to worsen, increasing your risk of experiencing a dental emergency. We believe in being proactive rather than being reactive once there is a problem or emergency with your oral health. When treatment is received during the early stages of a problem, it may be minor, but when postponed, a more in-depth and expensive treatment may be needed.
If it has been some time since your last oral hygiene examination and cleaning, we would love to see you! As mentioned above, now is a great time to schedule your appointment so you can enjoy the upcoming summer worry free! Be sure to contact our office located in Wellington, FL to schedule an appointment. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
