You know that you should go to the dentist, but it’s been a while since you made that a regular part of your oral care routine. It’s time to change that.
Your first step is making an appointment at either Davenport Dental Group location in Laredo, TX. Call 956-517-2695 for our Winfield office. Come see your general dentist for the reasons listed below (and more).
1. Keep Your Teeth Clean
You do need to brush your teeth and floss between them daily. However, a professional cleaning will remove plaque buildup that you may have missed, as well as any tartar that has formed.
2. Fight Gum Disease
Most people will experience some form of gum disease. Finding it early can make a big difference in whether it harms your smile and your oral health.
3. Avoid Dental Injuries
You may not be able to prevent accidents from happening, but you can be prepared for the possibility. If you play sports, then you should be wearing an athletic mouthguard, just like you wear a seat belt when you drive or ride in a car.
4. Add Protection for Your Smile
You can also get dental sealants and fluoride treatments to make your teeth less likely to develop cavities.
