Even if you and your family have good oral hygiene, brush twice a day, and floss daily, it is still important to visit a family dentist regularly. Dentists can detect problems such as cavities and gum disease during a checkup. They can also identify signs of other diseases in the throat, mouth, or jaw that may have otherwise gone unnoticed and could be dangerous to you or a family member. To maintain optimal oral health, dental appointments should be set every six months so that you and your family can receive teeth cleaning and checkups.
Can a Family Dentist Help During a Dental Emergency?
If you are experiencing a dental emergency such as a painful and throbbing toothache, injury or trauma to the mouth, swelling or bleeding from the mouth, or loose or cracked teeth, you should contact your family dentist for an emergency dental appointment immediately. Family dentists can efficiently and effectively help their patients during a dental emergency. Although many dental emergencies are unavoidable, good oral hygiene and routine dental appointments can avoid unnecessary dental emergencies.
