Nice To See You: Regular Visits to the Dentist
Do you ever feel like work commitments, family, and other obligations make it difficult to keep your scheduled dentist visits?
Oftentimes we put our own health on the back burner to care for kids, spouses, parents and friends as they compete for our time and energy. But we are not helping anyone by neglecting our own oral health.
Routine dental visits along with good oral hygiene help catch problems before they start and ensure you enjoy a long-lasting, healthy smile for years to come.
The American Dental Association recommends that everyone sees a dentist at least twice a year – once every six months. Patients who smoke, have diabetes or are pregnant are considered high-risk for developing periodontal disease and should see their dentist more often.
Your semi-annual office visit should include a check-up, cleaning and an opportunity to speak with the dentist about any concerns or questions you have since your last visit.
At Briglia Dental, we make a record not only of what we find in your mouth, but also what we discuss with our patients and note any relevant health information. We use this to compare to your previous visits so we can pinpoint problems before they become serious.
We know that sometimes fear can prevent you from seeing your dentist regularly. Fear of pain or even fear of dentists and their offices cause people to avoid visits. This is why Briglia Dental employs a staff that is qualified, professional and caring dental specialists who make your comfort a priority. We make sure you are comfortable at all times and offer many options for sedation, numbing, or calming.
If you, or your family, are overdue for an office visit, don’t hesitate to set up an appointment today. Call Briglia Dental Group at (610)692-4440 to schedule your next appointment and see how our team can help you develop lifelong, healthy oral habits.
