When it comes to maintaining your overall physical health, it is important that you remember to schedule your regular dentist appointments. Taking care of your general health includes making sure that your teeth and gums are healthy as well. While an annual physical is necessary in order to make sure that your body is functioning properly, regular visits with your dentist can do the same for your teeth. There are plenty of advantages to visiting your dentist and here at Village Dental Medicine, our dentists can provide you and your family with the comprehensive care you need. Make visiting our Bryant Park dental office a part of your yearly check up schedule.
Many people only visit the dentist when they have a specific issue or concern. This usually means that they only plan a visit when they think they may have a cavity or they think that something else may be wrong with their teeth or gums. While you should definitely visit your dentist when you experience any new signs or symptoms, especially ones that exhibit discomfort or pain, you should also plan more regular visit too. It is recommended that people have their teeth checked at least once a year and cleaned at least twice a year. An annual dental appointment here at our Bryant Park dental office, our dentists at Westchester Putnam Endodontic Associates can monitor your oral health, making it easier to spot any small changes or developments. With the use of x-rays and other similar methods, it becomes much easier for your dentist to identify any issues below the gums such as the development of teeth, especially of wisdom teeth or of emerging permanent teeth in children. Regular screenings can help look for signs of cancer or other diseases such as gingivitis. Dental cleanings can help limit the amount of plaque buildup there is on your teeth and around your gums, also limiting your chances of developing tooth decay or gum disease.
