Life gets busy. Sometimes it seems impossible to keep up with everything you “gotta do”. At Mason Dental in Grapevine, we understand that. But don’t put your dental health at risk by canceling or postponing a checkup because you think it’s less important than the other twenty items on your to-do list.
Twice-yearly dental exams are crucial for keeping your smile in ideal shape!
“But my teeth feel fine.”
Don’t lull yourself into a false sense of security. Dental issues 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 at risk.
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 degeneration.
3. Prevent Oral Cancer
About 50,000 people 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.
At Mason Dental in Grapevine, we want you to enjoy excellent dental health. So make sure to see us for a cleaning and checkup twice a year. Services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next appointment today!
