How preventive dental services from your Sparkill dentist can protect your smile

If you’ve thought about postponing your regular dental visits, don’t! Regular preventive dental examinations and x-rays are the only way to ensure your mouth and teeth are healthy. Many dental problems begin with no signs, symptoms or pain. Small dental issues can become large dental problems and you won’t even know what happened.

Regular visits to your dentist can prevent a small dental issue from turning into a big dental problem. Regular visits can save you time, money and a painful outcome. You don’t want to experience problems like these:

  • Decay turning into a root canal or tooth extraction
  • Gum infection turning into periodontal disease
  • Periodontal disease turning into tooth extractions and expensive tooth replacement

Current recommendations are for you to see your dentist at least once each year for an exam and x-rays. You should have a professional cleaning at least once every six months, more often if you have gum or periodontal issues.

Don’t wait to seek out preventive dental services; it could save your smile and your health!
