Start the Year Off with a Dental Cleaning & Exam
The start of a new year always brings with it the inspiration to take better care of ourselves. As you start jotting down your resolutions and plans for this coming year, be sure to pencil in all the necessary appointments to check up on your health, including a dental cleaning and exam. If you didn’t manage to squeeze in an appointment at the end of 2016 due to the busy holiday season, now is a great time to call and make an appointment to start 2017 on the right foot:
- Good hygiene is key to prevention. Getting that annual cleaning ensures that the plaque buildup you can’t remove with regular brushing doesn’t remain on your teeth all year long. Plus, our hygienist can discuss your dental care routine with you and give you advice on what you can do on a daily basis to protect your teeth and keep them looking great between visits.
- Regular exams ensure problems are treated when still minor. It may only take those few months between dental exams for you to begin developing gum disease, tooth decay, or the start of enamel erosion. Dr. Schmidt will notice these changes immediately and can help you address the onset of any conditions before they become an emergency.
- We can even detect some overall health issues. What most people don’t realize about regular dental visits is that the dentist can spot the early signs of health issues before you may notice anything amiss. For instance, when you get a full set of X-rays at your dental appointment, Dr. Schmidt is often the first to spot the signs of osteoporosis before even you or your physician might due to its effects on the teeth and jaw bone. Visiting the dentist twice a year helps you avoid letting anything affecting your health go unchecked.
Putting your dental care at the top of your new year’s resolutions is a great way to start off 2017 feeling healthy and knowing that your teeth are taken care of for the next six months. Make your new year dental cleaning and exam an annual tradition along with other healthy habits and you will be off to a great start.
