Fort Collins Dentist Dr. Lindsey Wants to See You Twice in 2017!

February 12, 2017

When’s the last time you saw the dentist? The correct answer to that question is one, two, three, four, five or six months ago—but not seven! The American Dental Association advocates for twice yearly dental checkups and Fort Collins dentist Dr. Shiloh Lindsey agrees. With this regularity, we can closely monitor the condition of your teeth and gums in order to spot any concerning changes before they get out of hand.  Get Clean and Healthy Teeth with a Checkup We know that you care about the smiles in your family—that’s why you make sure everyone brushes at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and flosses, too. However, that’s simply not enough. At a dental checkup, our hygienists have the proper instruments and take the time to clean each one of your teeth individually. We’re able to remove surface stains that might eventually mar the appearance of your otherwise white smile. We also floss between your teeth to remove plaque buildup along the gum line. These procedures not only enhance the beauty of your smile, but also help to ensure that you have healthy teeth.  Pass the Test with a Dental Exam In addition to cleaning and polishing your teeth, we also examine your teeth, your gums and your entire oral cavity at one of your regular dental checkups. We do this in order to locate problems early when they are more easily treated. For example, Dr. Lindsey visually checks each tooth and examines annual digital x-rays. She does this to find the signs that indicate the beginning of a cavity, a hidden crack that threatens the integrity of a tooth or an existing filling in need of repair or replacement. In each of these cases, early intervention can prevent a procedure that is more invasive and more costly.  Shhh…It’s Gum Disease Gum disease is a quiet problem. Very often the early warning signs can go unnoticed. To spot gingivitis—the first phase of gum disease—as soon as possible, our hygienist will measure the depth of gum pockets, which are the areas immediately surrounding each tooth. A depth greater than four millimeters may be a sign of gum disease. If present, Dr. Lindsey may recommend that you follow a more stringent cleaning routine at home or in the case of more advanced gum disease, periodontal therapy in our office may be necessary.  Finally, we’ll examine your entire oral cavity as well as your cheeks, lips and throat for the early warning signs of oral or pharyngeal cancer. Both of these cancers are highly treatable and curable when discovered early.  Call Our Office Today If it’s been more than six months since your last dental checkup, then call Dr. Lindsey at Aspen Dental Care to schedule an appointment. When’s the last time you saw the dentist? The correct answer to that question is one, two, three, four, five or six months ago—but not seven! The American Dental Association advocates for twice yearly dental checkups and Fort Collins dentist Dr. Shiloh Lindsey agrees. With this regularity, we can closely monitor the condition of your teeth and gums in order to spot any concerning changes before they get out of hand.

You ordered your beer, and the bartender clearly heard what you said, but now you’re looking at a pint glass that is only 60% filled.
