Life gets busy. Sometimes it seems impossible to keep up with everything on your “gotta do” list. At Cary Family Dental, we understand that. But we encourage you to remember how important your dental health is, so don’t cancel or postpone a checkup because it seems less important than all that other stuff.
Twice-yearly dental exams are indispensable for keeping your smile in prime shape!
“But my teeth feel fine.” We hear this a lot. The fact is that no news isn’t necessarily good news. Dental troubles can be progressing without you being aware of it.
1. Your Gums May Be Receding
Gum recession doesn’t happen all at once. Gum tissue can move back almost imperceptibly until teeth and bone are at risk.
2. Decay May Be Lurking
When the acids in plaque start working into a tooth, we usually don’t feel it until it has passed through the enamel and dentin and hits the nerve. Ouch! By that time, there is a serious cavity. Regular cleanings remove plaque before it can do any damage.
3. Prevent Oral Cancer
About 50,000 men and women will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. We will screen for oral cancer during your exam. As with all types of cancer, early diagnosis is essential.
After your entire mouth has been examined, Dr. Allan Acton will detail what is required moving forward. Whether that’s flossing more often or discussing major fixes such as braces, we will be certain that you get all the information you need to ensure your smile is bright and beautiful!
At Cary Family Dental, our services include general and family dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and teeth whitening. We stay ahead of the curve with state-of-the-art laser dentistry. But it’s our patients that matter the most. Scheduling twice-yearly exams will ensure you avoid severe dental problems.
