    12 Reasons to See a Dentist
    Patients schedule appointments for a variety of reasons including anything from a routine hygiene cleaning to a toothache. It’s important to listen to your body and never ignore or put off any signs that something is not right in your mouth. Put your health first and make the appointment – the sooner a problem is detected the better and it could save you in the long run.

    Here are 12 reasons you need to see a dentist:

    1) You experience pain or swelling in mouth, face or neck
    2) You have inflamed gums or a history of gum disease
    3) You are not proud of your smile
    4) Your dental history includes fillings, crowns, bridges – this work needs to be monitored.
    5) You have ongoing medical issues such as diabetes, eating disorders, cardiovascular disease or HIV positive.
    6) You are pregnant – it is safe to still go to the dentist.
    7) You have difficulty eating and chewing and avoid eating certain foods.
    8) You suffer from dry mouth
    9) You use tobacco of any form
    10) You experience jaw pain
    11) You notice mouth sores or spots or have been diagnosed with oral cancer.
    12) Your teeth are healthy – it’s important to maintain your twice a year checkups and hygiene cleanings.

    Cleanings – Make this First on your 2018 List 

     

    It’s the new year! Happy 2018! Is getting a dental hygiene cleaning on your list of resolutions? Why do people procrastinate on scheduling cleanings? Cleanings are one of the best things you can do to stay healthy! If you have dental insurance benefits, most policies cover your hygiene cleanings  — so it’s time for you to get your teeth cleaned! Prevention is less expensive than extensive dental work.

    Frankel Dentistry sees patients every 3, 4, or 6 months. Patients may start at four visits per year and graduate to twice a year. Folks with health complications such as diabetes find more frequent visits very helpful. Some patients keep their smile in-check by maintaining their 3 month re-care, others do well visiting twice a year.

     

    Here are a few of the Benefits of Getting Routine Hygiene Cleanings:

    1) Professional cleanings remove plaque and calicified build-up.

    2) Less plaque =  less cavities

    3) Less plaque = lower risk of gum disease

    4) Regular cleanings help lower your risk of some diseases such as heart disease – early signs of these diseases can be detected in your mouth.

    5) Less plaque = lower risk for needing extensive dental treatment such as a root canal, filling or crown, which saves you money

    6) Frequent visits include instructions to keep your at-home cleanings fine tuned.

    It’s still important to take care of your mouth at home and maintain strong oral health habits. Schedule a professional cleaning and oral exam.  If you would like Frankel Dentistry’s Insurance Benefit Coordinator will check with your insurance to see what is covered.

    Put your health first this year and make the appointment!
