Has It Been A While?

Although we recently started a new year, for many of us we are just getting into planning and scheduling appointments for 2022. Speaking of appointments, when was your last visit to our office? We know that life gets busy and obligations with work, family and social commitments always seem to pop up, not to mention lingering illnesses that continue to circulate. We want you to think about your overall oral health and consider scheduling an appointment for your routine hygiene examination, especially if it has been longer than six months since we have seen you. Delaying your dental exam can lead to discomfort, dental decay, as well as other conditions. If you have been delaying dental care due to lack of insurance or overall cost, we have a solution for you. Read on for more details.

Importance Of Replacing Missing Teeth

It is not uncommon for us to see patients with missing teeth or recommend that a patient have a tooth extracted. There could be a variety of reasons that a patient is dealing with tooth loss and can range from severe decay to facial trauma or medical complications. No matter the reason for tooth loss, it can be upsetting and traumatic to patients. The first question that we are usually asked is in regards to replacing the tooth and if a tooth replacement option really needs to be chosen. Patients with a visible missing tooth are typically eager to choose a replacement; however, patients who are missing rear molars can show hesitation at times. We encourage all patients to replace their missing teeth as soon as possible.

Is It Too Late to Fix Your Damaged Teeth?

We want to stress to our patients the importance of caring for your oral health. For many, life is always busy, and the years seem to fly by. Between work, family obligations, activities with children or grandchildren, and enjoying life, there never seems to be a dull moment or any down time.

These same patients may also be experiencing oral discomfort or are dealing with a dental health problem and feel it is too late to fix their teeth. Does this sound like you?
