Taking care of your teeth is necessary not simply for the beautiful smile that results. Taking care of your teeth is necessary because when your teeth are sick other areas of your body can become sick as well. Dental decay left untreated is closely linked to heart disease, infection, and an overall general feeling of just not “being well.” To help you and your family members avoid this often unknown effect of poor dental health you should visit with your San Saba Dentist provider at regular, six month intervals.
Seeing a dentist used to be one of those annual visits we had to get through. However, due to the advancement of the dental field and the recognition of the role of dental health in our general state of well-being, it is now recommended that everyone see a dentist at least every six months. When you go in for a six month check up with your dentist, you can expect to receive a thorough examination of your mouth, your teeth, and your gums. Additionally, you should expect to receive a set of x-rays that your San Saba dentist uses to monitor the health of your teeth that are visible, but also those that are not visible below the gum line. Frequently decay problems can begin below the gum line where they can go unnoticed and therefore untreated by your dentist. X-rays are going to allow your dentist to visualize the entirety of your tooth, from the surface to the interior to the root embedded in your gums. By this total monitoring of your teeth, your dentist can catch problems early on and treat them simply rather than putting you through a complicated and painful dental procedure.
When your dentist gives you this detailed of an exam, you both benefit. You benefit from knowing that the health of your teeth is being closely monitored. Your dentist benefits from knowing that he can catch any developing problems early on so as to provide you with prompt treatment that prevents long-term complicated problems from happening. Dentists do not simply evaluate the condition of your teeth. They are also monitoring the condition of your gums. Gum disease left undetected and untreated can lead to permanent tooth loss.
Professional San Saba Dentists are also monitoring the overall health and condition of the interior of your mouth. You and your San Saba Dentist have a partnership that allows you to keep the best possible oral health. Your smile is what people see first when they meet you, keep yours spectacular. You deserve the best!
