It’s that time of year again – time for some spring cleaning. As you plan on what to do and when to do it, why not include a visit to your dentist so that clean teeth and a healthy smile can be a part of making a fresh start this spring. If you’re at low risk for cavities or gum disease, you’ll only need to visit the dentist once a year. Why not make it a part of your March spring cleaning regime? Here are a few more reasons why you should visit the office of Dr. Bruce Silva:
- Regular maintenance will improve the look of your teeth and your looks, in general. Have your teeth professionally cleaned at least once a year. If you feel you may suffer from dental disease, increase that visit to two or three visits a year. A professional cleaning will remove plaque and tartar buildup in hard to reach places.
- Detect dental issues early. Visit the dentist’s office for a thorough inspection of your teeth’s health and condition. Finding any problems early and repairing it can prevent a more serious situation later in your life.
- Prevent gum disease. Gum disease is an infection of the tissues in your teeth and is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. A dental cleaning will help prevent bacteria from the hard to reach plaque in your teeth.
Dr. Bruce Silva advises you to visit at least once a year, but as you get older, your dental visits should increase to about two to three times a year, depending on your risk for dental health problems. Good luck with your spring cleaning, and don’t forget to call our office today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bruce Silva!
