Why Adults Skip Dentist Appointments
One of the main reasons adults report avoiding the dentist is a lack of dental insurance. Total Care Dental has multiple financing options for our patients, even if they do not have dental insurance. Our goal is to make your dental needs as affordable as possible.
Annual Checkups for Early Treatment
During your annual or biannual exam, our dentists will use the latest dental technology to check your teeth for changes. Through this system we can detect small changes from grinding, cavity growth, or gum disease. Your oral health can indicate your overall health. Sudden changes in your teeth and gums may be a warning sign of deeper health problems.
Daily brushing and flossing is a good start to protecting your oral hygiene, but sometimes it isn’t enough. A professional teeth cleaning from our dentists will give your teeth and gums long-lasting benefits. Having this done a minimum of once a year is recommended for the best results.
Dentistry and Pregnancy: How Checkups are Good for Baby
Being pregnant means a lot more doctor’s appointments. It also means going to the dentist more often. Why? Pregnant women are more susceptible to health problems including in their teeth and gums. Gingivitis is surprisingly common amongst pregnant women due to changes in hormonal distribution in the body.
