While the final month of 2021 is here, you still have time left to use your remaining dental benefits. One big advantage to having coverage for your oral health is that you can have an easier time scheduling your semiannual dental checkups and cleanings. By staying consistent with these appointments, you can protect yourself against the different threats that can negatively impact your smile. Our Ankeny, IA dentist’s office is here to help if you need to book your next appointment. We can work with you to make use of your coverage, or we can review the options available to you outside of that form of support. Remember that we are also here to help if you have potential problems with your smile that call for professional treatment.
Have You Stayed Consistent With Your Dental Exams?
If you want to avoid problems with your periodontal health, or with issues that require restorative dental work, you should consistently book preventive checkups. Regular oral health exams and cleanings help you sustain your smile by providing protection against plaque and tartar formation, and by alerting you to issues that we can address before you experience complications. As the year is nearly over, most people should have already visited twice for routine care. If you have fallen behind on your visits, or if you are looking for a new practice where you can begin care, know that our office is here to help you!
Taking Advantage Of Your Preventive Care
Through preventive services, you can receive timely updates about your oral health, and you can undergo thorough cleanings that help you remain safe from different problems. In certain circumstances, your appointment can cover more than you might expect. If you show signs of gingivitis, we can provide a deep cleaning, also known as a periodontal cleaning, instead of the routine service provided during a checkup. This is done to target bacteria that are already present below your gum line. By providing this care, we can protect your periodontal health and help you avoid potential complications. These visits also provide opportunities to take early action against issues like teeth grinding, which can lead to worsening wear and tear, and eventually serious damage, if it is not managed.
