Importance Of Regular Dental Visits
Dental anxiety often prevents patients from getting the care they desperately need. At our dental office, which is near Park Meadows Mall, in Lone Tree, we treat patients who haven’t been to the dentist in years, because of fear. The gentle dental care that we provide can help patients get back on track, and we offer three types of sedation, which makes visits to the dentist significantly easier.
Once dental health has been regained, however, it’s important to keep maintaining it. At a “routine” dental exam and cleaning, we do so much more than just clean your teeth.
• look for gum problems, broken fillings, or cracked teeth
• examine you for oral cancer
• evaluate any sensitivity you might have
• check for TMJ or bite problems
• recheck the dental work that’s been done
In short, we focus on identifying and catching dental issues while they’re still at a stage at which treatment is easier and can be less expensive. Why fix it if it doesn’t hurt? Because being proactive can help you to avoid many dental emergency situations.
Most dental insurance plans will cover recall visits and cleanings every six months, so often times, there’s little or no out-of-pocket expense.
The majority of our patients who are afraid to visit the dentist will take advantage of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or conscious sedation (also known as oral sedation or sleep dentistry) for exams and cleanings.
For more information about dental exams and cleanings, or to schedule an appointment, please call our dental office, (303) 323-8149, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Our dental office is located on the south end of the Denver metro area, between Highlands Ranch and Park Meadows Mall. We offer early morning and evening dental appointments.
