Here at Summit Family Dentistry in Denver, North Carolina, we believe in the dental philosophy of, the best dental care comes when we approach it with an eye to prevention. What we mean by that, is if we see a potential problem for you, we’ll be sure to mention it along with a few of our best tips, this is in order to ensure that your teeth get exactly the treatment they need to stay happy and healthy.

When it comes to preventative dentistry, we believe in a combination of cleaning, fluoride varnish, and periodontal maintenance. After all, a completely healthy mouth means that your teeth are in good shape and so are your gums.

People often put off a trip to the dentist, however, for a number of reasons. For some, it’s because they know something is wrong and they don’t have any desire to hear what it is because they’re not quite sure how they’ll deal with it. For others, it may be that they had a bad experience with a dentist in the past. For others still, it’s because they have convinced themselves it will be an incredibly expensive outing regardless of what’s actually going on in their mouths.

At Summit Family Dentistry, we want you to know that our goal is always to keep your fears in check through a combination of clear, effective communication, and advanced dental techniques. When you visit the dentist, it doesn’t have to be a scary experience (and we’ll work hard to make sure it’s not), but you do still need to go and in today’s blog, we’ll take a look at a few reasons why.

Why You Should See Your Dentist Regularly

We Can Catch Things Early

We mentioned it above, but perhaps the best reason to schedule a trip to the dentist is so we can catch potential issues early. That means if we see a small cavity, we can take care of it now before it gets worse and you end up needing a root canal. We can also advise you of problem areas in your mouth that need more attention. For example, you may have a particular area of your mouth that you can’t get to as well; we may notice that and advise that you spend more time flossing that area or recommend rinsing that area out with antibacterial mouthwash more regularly.

Your Teeth Need a Deep Clean

No matter how dedicated you are to brushing and flossing on a daily basis, there are bound to be some things that you just can’t get. Your teeth, gums, and mouth might feel perfectly clean, but we can see things you can’t and get to the areas that need a bit more attention. At the very least, scheduling an appointment with us on a regular basis ensures that your teeth get the regular cleaning they need.

We’ll Keep an Eye on Your Gums

You may never consider what’s going on with your gums, but as your dentist, we can take a look to make sure that everything is a-okay. If we notice signs that your gums could use some extra love and attention, we’ll be sure to point it out and provide you with a few tips on how to ensure that your gums stay healthy. Particularly of note is that if your gums bleed every time you floss or brush your teeth, you need to schedule an appointment because we can help!
