Few people relish the idea of going to the dentist, but it is crucial to your oral (and total) health that you schedule an examination at least once every year. At Klooster Family Dentistry, we make visits as simple, stress-free, and fun as possible, with a Kids’ Nook to put children at ease, sedation dentistry for all ages, and friendly smiles. If you’re still nervous about getting your yearly examination, here are a few reasons that you should make your appointment today.
Much of the examination is about preventative care. Our dentists will look for signs of cavity development that can be stalled or reversed, as well as any issues with your gums. Gum disease is a serious problem that is often accompanied by tender gums or bleeding, and it can mean that your teeth suffer in the future. Also, your examination will feature a thorough inspection of your neck, head, and glands for abnormal swelling or growths, which can be a sign of oral cancer.
Giving You Tips for the Future
A once-per-year visit to the dentist can help catch the development of serious illnesses, but it is not your primary front on the battle for oral health. The real work is done every day, by you! At your examination, our dentists will recommend any changes that should be made to your daily oral hygiene routine, including new techniques for brushing or flossing. If you are a new patient and it is your first visit to our office, we even offer a FREE Phillips Sonicare Easy Clean toothbrush that can improve your daily brushing habits.
Recommendations for Further Care
At Klooster Family Dentistry, we want to make your mouth and smile the best it can be, both for your confidence and for your overall health. When you come in for an examination, our dentists can get a better idea of the state of your oral hygiene and make recommendations for any other services you may need. For example, we may recommend our Identafi oral cancer screening if you show possible signs of oral cancer. Catching these issues early is vital to combating them and keeping your body as healthy as possible. In fact, oral cancer can be cured in 80-90% of cases if it is caught early!To take advantage of all the ways that Klooster Family Dentistry can help you be the best you, schedule your examination today.
