Our team is looking forward to serving you and your family in 2016 — keep reading to learn why checkups are so important, then contact us to schedule your appointment today.
Healthy Teeth Require Twice Annual Checkups
We know you’d like to keep your healthy, beautiful teeth for a lifetime. We’ll let you in on a little secret — you can do so by maintaining excellent oral hygiene habits right now. That includes brushing for two minutes, twice a day, flossing daily and visiting your dentist in State College every six months.
What We Check For: Tooth Decay, Gum Disease and Worn Dental Work
When you stay on top of your twice annual checkups and cleanings, you give us the chance to make sure your teeth are healthy and decay-free — and that your gums aren’t showing any evidence of gum disease. Red, swollen, tender gums can indicate you’ve got the condition that affects more than 75 percent of Americans, but when it’s caught early, gum disease is easily treated and often reversed.
In addition to tooth decay and gum infections, we’ll also check to make sure all existing hardware in your mouth is in good shape. You may rarely think about that crown you had decades ago, but when something goes wrong with it you surely will. We’ll check in and notice worn dental work before it causes major problems, saving you time, stress and discomfort in the long run.
Dental Cleanings Give You That Fresh Feeling
Of course, your twice annual visit isn’t only about the exam. Your teeth also receive a thorough cleaning from our team of expert dental hygienists and assistants. There’s nothing better than walking out of the dental office with smooth, sparkling teeth — and we think it’s a wonderful way to start off 2016!
