We understand that finding the time to fit an appointment into your day can be challenging with a busy schedule! Despite how busy you are, dental appointments are essential for good oral health. Keeping up with routine visits to the dentist helps keep your teeth and gums functioning and feeling healthy.

Here are three reasons to visit the dentist regularly for preventive dental care:

  1. Early Diagnosis of Dental Issues
  2. Even though you use your teeth every day, you may not notice something is wrong until it becomes a bigger problem. When you visit Alma Dental Care, Dr. Serrano will examine your mouth for signs of dental disease and oral cancer. Dental issues like decay or gum disease can be identified during your visits, and early diagnosis may result in less invasive and more affordable treatment options than if they were discovered later.

  3. Cleaner Teeth & Gums
  4. The American Dental Association recommends patients receive cleanings and exams at least every six months. During this cleaning, your skilled hygienist will carefully scrape away harmful plaque and tartar from your teeth and from under your gums that could otherwise increase your risk of bad breath, enamel erosion, and gum inflammation.

  5. Increased Knowledge of Your Oral Healthcare
  6. Your oral health greatly depends on what happens at home. The more you know about proper oral health habits, the better. During your visits, we can address specific problem areas and answer any questions you have about caring for your teeth and gums at home. Our personalized tips and tricks can get you closer to achieving optimal oral health!
