Caring for your smile is essential to your overall health. As a gateway to the rest of your body, anything wrong with your oral health must be taken care of due its direct connection to the rest of your body. Visiting a general dentist can help provide preventive care for the whole entire family. At 1st Scottsdale Dental
, Dr. Marjan Nejad and her dental staff are experienced in ensuring patients’ smiles are healthy as possible, but here are some key reasons why you should visit the dentist:
Maintaining a Healthy Smile
The recommended amount of visits to the dentist is one every six months. During these checkup appointments your dentists will conduct a thorough dental examination to evaluate the health of your gums, perform a head and neck examination, and examine your mouth for any signs for oral cancer, diabetes, or vitamin deficiencies.
A cleaning, whether that’s a general cleaning or a debridement if the dentist and hygienist notice a buildup of plaque or tartar, may be done during your visits with the dentist. This professional cleaning will showcase what a healthy, clean smile looks like, and removes buildup that wasn’t possible during you at-home oral routine.
Habits and Concerns
There are certain conditions and habits that my prompt you to visit the dentist more often than the recommended two times per year. Habitual smokers typically understand that they may have issues ranging from bad breath to a higher risk of oral cancer. Visiting the dentist regularly can keep your dental health monitored for these concerns, while doing the most to keep your smile at its optimal appeal.
If you are expecting, it’s important to take care of your teeth and gums by visiting the dentist and eating a healthy and well balanced diet. Pregnant women can experience pregnancy gingivitis, as the hormones make their gums more sensitive to plaque buildup.
A Dentist for a Lifetime
For yourself and your family, a general dentist can provide a multi-faceted approach to caring for their smiles; from providing preventive care for children to restoring older smiles. Establishing a trusting relationship by routinely visiting a general dentist helps prevent dental fears and anxieties from beginning.
