Why do I need to see the dentist if I’m not having problems with my teeth?
When you brush twice a day, floss once, and avoid sugary snacks, you can avoid a lot of dental problems. But problem-free oral health is a team effort, and you must follow up your efforts with professional dental exams and teeth cleanings at our Pen Argyl dental office.
A lot can happen with your teeth and gums before you know a problem even exists. Cavities are not usually painful in their earliest stages. So catching and treating them right away is crucial, but we can do that when you come into our office for routine appointments every six months.
Seeing you every six months helps us stay current with your oral health and treat problems long before they become painful or costly to treat. If we find a small cavity during a routine dental exam, our dentists can treat it with a simple filling. It’s much easier and more affordable to fill a small cavity than wait till it spreads and we need to perform a root canal to save the tooth.
At Dental Wellness of Pen Argyl, we’ve created an environment where you can feel good about receiving routine dental care. Please call us to arrange your next dental exam and teeth cleaning.
