3 Reasons Not To Skip A Dental Checkup

cosmetic dental Las Vegas

Life gets busy. Sometimes it seems impossible to keep up with everything you gotta do. At Summer Dental in Las Vegas, we get that. But we urge you to think twice before you cancel or postpone a dental check up because you think it’s less important than the other twenty things on your to-do list.

Twice-yearly dental exams are vital for keeping your smile in ideal shape!

“But my teeth feel fine.”
Don’t be lulled by a false sense of security. No news isn’t necessarily good news. Dental problems can be progressing without you being aware of it.

1. Your Gums May Be Receding
Gum recession doesn’t happen all at once. Gum tissue can move back almost imperceptibly until teeth and bone are in jeopardy.

2. Decay May Be Lurking
When the acids in plaque start drilling into a tooth, we usually don’t feel it until it has passed through the enamel and dentin and hits the nerve. Ouch! By that time, there is a crater in the tooth. Regular cleanings remove plaque before it can do any deterioration.

3. Prevent Oral Cancer
About 50,000 men and women will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. We will screen for oral cancer during your exam. As with all types of cancer, early diagnosis is essential.

After your entire mouth has been examined, we will detail what is needed moving forward. Whether that’s flossing more often or discussing major fixes such as braces, we will be sure that you get all the information you need to ensure your smile is bright and beautiful.

In addition to dental check ups, Summer Dental in Las Vegas provides a wide range of general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next six-month appointment with us today.

Happy Teeth Don’t Just Happen

Your Nevada Dentist And Cleaning Your TeethKeeping your teeth clean is essential to maintaining a beautiful smile. One of the merits of visiting Summer Dental in Las Vegas twice a year is receiving a thorough teeth cleaning and a review of your brushing practices.

Your Partner in Oral Health

Our dental hygienist can professionally clean and polish your teeth at your semiannual check-up. The hygienist also helps you keep your teeth clean by assessing the condition of your teeth and recommending improvements to your daily teeth cleaning habits.

Having a professional dental cleaning is the only way to clear away  tartar, a calcium deposit that forms from plaque and contributes to cavities.

Don’t Forget Basic Dental Hygiene

Of course, home care is also a big part of the equation. Brushing and flossing at least twice each day helps to keep plaque and tartar from building up on your teeth and results in cleaner, healthier teeth.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visiting your dentist at least once every 6 months for a dental checkup and cleaning.

To keep that beautiful smile in first-rate condition! Come in to Summer Dental in Las Vegas for a professional checkup and cleaning twice a year. We also offer a full range of general and cosmetic dentistry. Make your next appointment today.
