It’s safe to assume that most people understand the importance of having their teeth examined on a regular basis, though many continue to put it off until something becomes uncomfortable or unsightly. One of the most important things to remember about dental checkups, is that a person’s dental health is often a strong indicator of their overall health. Having a six-month dental exam isn’t just a smart way to protect a healthy smile; it can also help ensure that the rest of you is functioning as it should be. 

The Importance of Scheduling Regular Dental CheckupsAt Pittsford Family Dental, we’re constantly striving to help our patients better understand the importance of having their teeth and gums examined regularly. Here are just a few of the many reasons to stay proactive when it comes to scheduling your regular dental checkups:

  • New and minor dental problems can quickly manifest to serious ones
  • An effective way to help prevent cavities, tooth decay, plaque, and tartar
  • Allows your dentist to identify early signs of gum disease and oral problems
  • Helps provide an up-to-date assessment of a person’s dental health status
  • Provides ongoing education on the best ways to care for your teeth and gums
  • Allows for the examination of existing fillings, crowns, caps, and implants

Caring for your teeth is a lifelong process that offers a wide range of benefits in return.
