6 Good Reasons To Visit Your Dentist More Often

Published on February 18, 2022

6 Good Reasons To Visit Your Dentist More Often

Most men and women visit the dentist about once each year. As many as forty percent of Americans see their dentist less often. Some go as long as five years between visits.

Most dentists advise a visit at least every six months.

Here are six great reasons to visit your dentist more frequently.

1. Oral Cancer Detection

That’s right: cancer detection. Not many individuals think about the risk of getting cancer in their mouth or throat. Patients with oral cancer have a far better prognosis when it’s detected early. Note that tobacco users have a considerably higher risk of developing oral cancer.

2. Cavity Damage

Unfortunately, almost everyone gets cavities. If cavities are caught when they are tiny, they aren’t difficult (or expensive) to fix.

The problem comes when they aren’t discovered early and the damage requires a major fix. Cavities are one of the reasons many people avoid the dentist. Getting a tooth filled used to be painful. Not anymore.

People who visit the dentist often have fewer cavities. Catching cavities early offers tremendous advantages.

Visiting Kernagis Dental Excellence can help you prohibit cavities altogether—as long as you practice daily dental hygiene.

3. Gum Disease, Gingivitis, or Periodontitis

Gum health is a part of overall dental health. Your dentist can help you track the state of your gums and prescribe ways to eliminate or reverse gum disease.

4. Bad Habits

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

Frequent visits to Kernagis Dental Excellence can help you track any potential harm you may be causing with bad habits. Your dentist can help you identify harmful habits and advise you on lifestyle changes and treatments.

Don’t let bad habits get in the way of your oral health. It helps to have an experienced professional to help you manage habits so they don’t become destructive.

5. Deeper Problems

The things we have discussed so far involve an oral examination. However, has the ability to look deeper with X-rays.

X-ray technology has come a long way. It allows your dentist to find potential problems before they become visible. Many of the conditions can be fixed before damage occurs.

6. More Than Just Teeth

The professionals at Kernagis Dental Excellence are concerned about more than your teeth. We care about your comprehensive physical health.

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

A semiannual dental visit can help you maintain a healthy mouth and a positive outlook on life.

See you soon!
