Getting regular preventative dentistry helps you keep your teeth beautiful. It removes unsightly buildup of tartar, and helps you avoid cavities, inflamed gums, and other oral health problems that damage your smile.
We don’t like to focus on dental discomfort too much, but it’s true that poor oral health can be painful. At first you might notice bleeding and pain from your gums when you eat. A tooth might become sensitive to temperature, pressure, and sweets. Later, dental pain can become constant as untreated problems worsen.
Preventative dentistry saves time. It takes just minutes at home each day, and a dental checkup takes less than an hour every six months. Restorative dentistry visits can take much longer. Plus, you can schedule preventative dental visits at your convenience. When you need restorative dentistry, you might find your urgent need disrupts your entire schedule.
Finally, preventative dentistry gives you peace of mind. You won’t have to panic at every twinge in your mouth. The appearance of a blemish on your tooth doesn’t mean you have an emergency. Put your mind at ease until your next checkup at Stephens & Gatewood Dentistry.
