Simply put, neglecting your oral hygiene often leads to problems. And while some dental issues can be corrected quickly and effectively, others can be far-reaching, irreversible, and can even impact your overall health.
As the saying goes, “Prevention is better than cure,” and when it comes to your smile, we couldn’t agree more! Here’s a look at the some of the many reasons you should prioritize regular check-ups and cleanings with your dentist in Edmonton at Yellowbird Dental.
To Protect Your Smile & Prevent Issues
While we’re here to care for all your oral health needs, you’ll find that we’re particularly focused on prevention as it helps patients avoid pain, complex services, and long-term dental problems. This focus includes providing tips and advice on prioritizing and optimizing your at-home hygiene practices, nutritional suggestions to keep your smile strong, and regular professional teeth cleanings and check-ups to ensure that any developing issues are quickly detected and treated.
If you’re a smoker, it’s vital that you undergo regular oral cancer checks with our skilled team, as this lifestyle choice puts you at significant risk for this disease. Should we detect any concerning symptoms during our examination, we’ll let you know, and we may recommend further testing to ensure that you receive prompt treatment, if needed.
While various issues can contribute to bad breath, in many cases, lacking oral hygiene and/or dental problems can be to blame. If this is a concern for you, we’ll provide you with suggestions to help, including brushing and flossing tips, regular cleanings and check-ups with our team, and treating any existing concerns related to decay, cavities, and gum disease.
When you visit our team for regular check-ups and cleanings, we’ll take the time to remove plaque and tartar build-up from your teeth and around your gum lines. This temporarily helps brighten and whiten your teeth, and can boost your smiling and speaking confidence while helping to protect your oral health in the short and long term!
Laying A Great Dental Foundation For Your Family
By making diligent oral health habits a priority, you positively and effectively impact the people around you. Whether with careful at-home dental hygiene practices, regular visits to our office, or healthy nutritional choices that benefit your smile, leading by example is vital to helping your loved ones make oral health essential for life.
The bottom line? Protecting your oral health with regular dental care is vital. If it’s been more than six months since your last appointment, call Yellowbird Dental in Edmonton today. Our friendly and skilled dental team is here for you!
