The way 2020 has gone so far, we wouldn’t blame you if you are ready for it to be over. Even so, we encourage you to make time to visit our dental practice before the new year arrives. Here are a few reasons why you should.
1. You have dental insurance
The good news about having dental insurance is that many policies cover all or most of the cost of a cleaning and exam. Unfortunately, most policies also limit their benefits to a particular calendar year. That means if you don’t take advantage of this benefit, then you’ve missed out on it.
2. You want to avoid problems
You want to keep your smile healthy, right? You should brush twice daily and floss every day, just like the American Dental Association recommends. But there is a reason the ADA also encourages people to get regular professional cleanings and exams. We’ll remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. This can go a long way toward preventing cavities and periodontal disease.
3. You want to treat problems while they are small
More than 90 percent of people will have at least one cavity in their lives, and 70 percent (or more) of people will have gum disease. If you have either of these conditions, it’s better to catch them as soon as possible. If we spot any problems, we will let you know how you can treat it efficiently and effectively.
4. You are ready to make a change
Maybe your teeth are perfectly healthy, but you are ready to give your smile an upgrade. Whether you are interested in whiter teeth, straighter teeth, or something else, our cosmetic services can give you the smile makeover you want. The sooner you begin, the sooner you could be looking at your new smile.
