To keep what you’ve got, you’ve got to care for what you’ve got.
Our practice has always been focused on maintaining the best possible smiles over the longest possible time. The best way to avoid dental issues is to have a clean and healthy mouth. Every dental professional preaches proactive care and maintenance, but it’s important to understand exactly why this is so necessary.
Preventative dentistry is crucial because of the way dental problems begin. Many unhealthy conditions are initially painless. By the time you can feel a problem like a toothache or gum disease, it can be too late. A cavity doesn’t transmit any pain until it’s almost into the nerve. Gingivitis (bleeding gums) does not hurt. Gum disease is painless until it progresses into actual bone damage. As with any health issue, early diagnosis is the key to a complete recovery. No one really likes to go to the dentist, and we are aware that there is fear of the unknown with all health issues, especially if you suspect that there might be a problem. Don’t let fear put you off. Like most things that cause us to worry, it’s usually not as bad as you think. Dr. Pinedo and her team of caring experts will repair, maintain and improve your mouth with a tender touch and a positive and comfortable environment.
It’s a fact that people who live healthier lives have healthier mouths. Strong teeth and healthy gums are a key component to the overall health of the body. Only through preventative check-ups can problems be identified and treated before they progress into a more serious dental condition. Has it been over six months since your last scheduled cleaning?
