6 Good Reasons to Visit Your Dentist

Published on July 19, 2019

6 Good Reasons To Visit Your Dentist More Often Most people visit the dentist about once each year. As many as forty percent of Americans see their dentist less often, and some go for years without a checkup. At Kernagis Dental Excellence in Tampa, we strongly recommend against this. Don’t put your dental health at risk!

Most dentists recommend a visit to the dentist’s office twice a year. There are a lot of reasons for this, some better than others. We searched around and found six good reasons for regular visits to the dentist:

1. Oral Cancer Detection

That’s right: cancer detection. Not many people realize the risk of getting cancer in their mouth or throat. Oral cancer is a serious problem. The risk of getting oral cancer is increased significantly for tobacco users, but the risk is there for everyone.

Dentists are trained to spot the signs of oral cancer, and regular checkups can mitigate the risk. Oral cancer is very treatable, but you have to catch it early. Frequent visits to us can help you avoid this problem.

2. Cavity Damage

People who visit the dentist more frequently have fewer cavities. Early treatment of cavities can be less invasive, and even cosmetically favorable. Catching cavities early offers tremendous advantages.

Visiting our office can help you avoid cavities all together with regular checkups and cleaning.

3. Gum disease

Visiting the dentist more means keeping an eye on the health of your gums. We can help you track the health of your gums and can prescribe healthful procedures to avoid or cure gum disease.

4. Bad Habits

Bad habits can have a negative impact on your oral health. Smoking, poor diet, biting nails and clenching teeth are among the more common.

Frequent visits can help you track any potential harm you may be causing with bad habits. We can help you identify bad habits and prescribe procedures or treatments to help you recover.

5. Deeper Problems

Most of the reasons we have discussed so far involve oral inspection. However, our dental team has the ability to look deeper with x-rays.

X-ray technology has come a long way and can be a great way to spot potential problems before they become visible. Your dentist is trained to look at x-rays to find common problems. Many of the problems can be fixed before damage occurs,

6. More Than Just Teeth

Dentists are trained in the anatomy around your mouth and that includes your neck, throat, lymph nodes and head. Dentists know a lot about these areas and look for signs of trouble.

A regular visit to the dentist can help you avoid health issues that can affect your overall health.

Call us today at Kernagis Dental Excellence in the Tampa, Apollo Beach , Lithia or FishHawk area. We offer cosmetic dentistry, dental implants, and sedation dentistry, as well as dental emergency care.
