Is It Time Your Smile Got Professional Dental Treatment?

When was the last time you visited the dentist? If it has been more than six months, did you know that you are already considered overdue for a preventive checkup and cleaning? That’s right. Most dentists recommend visiting the dentist at least twice a year, for preventive care including both thorough exams and dental cleanings. Some patients might even require more frequent visits in order to adequately protect the smile from common threats like decay, gum disease, and even tooth infection. Fortunately,

What Are the Warning Signs of Dental Decay and Other Issues?

Preventive care, including both daily dental hygiene and regular checkups and cleanings, are the best way to protect the teeth and the gums from common oral health threats. Combined with a healthy diet, patients who regularly see the dentist for cleanings and brush and floss daily are far less likely to struggle with dental problems.

That said, if you do find yourself struggling with discomfort because of a potential dental problem, it is important to schedule a consultation with your restorative dentist as soon as possible. Deep staining and heightened sensitivity are other common warning signs of dental decay, and related issues.

Why Is Restoration Important?

Teeth are naturally incredibly strong, particularly the outer layer, the enamel. That said, the teeth cannot repair themselves the same way the skin can, for instance. So when the enamel has been eroded by acidic beverages or plaque buildup restorative treatment is the best way to protect the smile.

Prompt restorative treatment can help to prevent a relatively simple problem, like a cavity, from worsening over time. Left untreated, though, even minor tooth damage can lead to painful infections.
