We agree with the American Dental Association, saying that you should see your dentist at least twice a year to make sure your smile is in tip top shape. Having your bi-yearly checkups lets us check and be sure everything in your mouth is going smoothly and working in tandem. Though many people believe they don not have to see the dentist unless something is wrong, Dr. Shiloh Lindsey wants to ensure your mouth is as healthy as it can be, not just when there is an issue, but even in its best best condition! One way she does this is by taking care of your dental checkups.
It is very difficult to accurately portray the importance of your dental checkup. When you come in for your appointment with Dr. Lindsey, she will take her time to inspect your mouth at length, leaving nothing kept in the dark. She will look at your gums and other soft tissue,looking for any early signs of gum disease or oral cancer and, if finding any, will take care of it immediately. Dr. Lindsey will also look at each and every tooth in your smile, searching for any cracks, cavities, and other abnormalities that could prevent you from having a healthy smile. She will also be able to replace any previous dental work you may have had, such as fillings, inlays, onlays, etcetera, with tooth-colored options.
The reason why dental checkups are so important is because it has the capacity to tackle and prevent problems before they get more serious down the road. What may appear to be a little discomfort now has the potential to lead to you needing a root canal. It is important to make sure whatever complications you have now regarding your smile are taken care of as soon as possible at your checkup. By doing this, you can save yourself unnecessary pain and money.
