Why Do We Need Routine Appointments?
We recommend our patients visit our office every six months for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning. There are certain patients, such as those who have issues like gum disease, who will need to be seen more often. During these visits, we not only thoroughly clean the teeth, but we also inspect for tooth decay and other conditions, such as gum disease and oral cancer. Early detection is key to ensuring the health of your teeth and gums. Your teeth are designed to last a lifetime, and when they are not cared for properly or routinely inspected by our dental team, the function of your teeth can become compromised.
Many patients are surprised to learn that their oral health can greatly affect their overall health. Routine examinations and following through with recommended treatment in a timely fashion can also help prevent other health complications such as heart disease and diabetes.
If you or a loved one are experiencing any indication that there is a problem developing or present with your oral health, we want you to contact our office located in New Braunfels, TX as soon as possible for an appointment. We would also love to have you schedule an appointment if you have not visited our office in the past few months for a checkup. We look forward to seeing you soon!
