Life gets busy. Sometimes it seems impossible to keep up with everything you “gotta do”. At Shwarts Family Dentistry in Richardson, we understand that. But we urge you to think twice before you cancel or postpone a dental checkup because you think it’s less important than the other twenty things on your to-do list.
Twice-yearly dental exams are crucial for keeping your smile in optimal shape!
“But my teeth feel fine.”
We’ve heard this excuse. The fact is that no news isn’t necessarily good news. Dental dilemmas can be progressing without you being aware of it.
1. Your Gums May Be Receding
Gum recession doesn’t happen all at once. Gum tissue can move back almost imperceptibly until teeth and bone are in jeopardy.
2. Decay May Be Lurking
When the acids in plaque start drilling into a tooth, we usually don’t feel it until it has passed through the enamel and dentin and hits the nerve. Ouch! By that time, there is a crater in the tooth. Regular cleanings remove plaque before it can do any degeneration.
3. Prevent Oral Cancer
About 50,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year.1 Dr. Ellis Shwarts will screen for oral cancer during your exam. As with all types of cancer, early diagnosis is crucial.
After your entire mouth has been examined, Dr. Ellis Shwarts will detail what is required moving forward. Whether that’s flossing more often or discussing major fixes such as braces, we will make certain that you get all the information you need to ensure your smile is bright and beautiful!
