Keep reading to hear 5 reasons why visiting our Kennewick, WA office should be part of your comprehensive dentistry plan, and then give us a call at 509-737-1800 to request your next appointment.
1. Prevent Cavities And Worse Things
When you are here for your checkup we’ll be able to eradicate the dangerous plaque and tartar that can build up on your teeth. By polishing your teeth we will then make it tougher for plaque to stick to the surface of your teeth when you leave our office.
We can also provide extra protection in the form of dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Fluoride has been proven to diminish the chances of dental decay and can even revive previously damaged enamel.
During the examination portion, our team will be able to assess the current situation in your mouth and if anything bad is going on, like a small cavity, we can take care of it before it has time to turn into a bigger and more expensive problem.
2. Maintain Healthy Gums
To us, gum health is a pretty big deal. After all, gum disease is the #1 cause of tooth loss in adults.
Gum disease is very treatable in its early stages, with deep cleaning and the like, but more severe and advanced gum disease is always more problematic to address and reverse.
If you do have gum disease, you will be encouraged to visit the office once every 3-4 months. This allows us to monitor the disease and then provide any necessary interventions along the way.
3. Keep Playing Safely
If you or your children are involved in sports, we can help protect your smiles from danger by crafting a custom mouthguard that will fit perfectly over your unique set of teeth.
Our specially crafted mouthguards will protect your teeth better than a traditional boil-and-bite mouthguards from the store and they will not obstruct the airway. Since they fit better than store-bought mouthguards, they will stay in your mouth no matter how wild the action gets.
4. Overcome Sensitivity Issues
Your teeth might be sensitive enough to cause you to skip over the foods that you most enjoy. Sensitive teeth make for a serious issue that can oftentimes be the result of issues like a cavity, an infected root, or even TMJ issues. Luckily, we can treat you appropriately at our office and get you out of pain fast.
5. Teach Your Children
Our team can help children in a variety of ways. Our preventive dental services are expansive. Like we said, make sure you ask us about age-appropriate add-ons like sealants and fluoride treatments. Plus, we can make your children feel at ease receiving comprehensive dental care through every stage of life. This will set them up for success as the years go by and their needs change accordingly.
