Although we are lucky to have modern dental techniques that can solve a variety of our oral emergencies, these dental issues often start small and grow into painful situations. Taking the time to invest in preventative maintenance can be a small investment into keeping your teeth healthy, you smiling, and your hard earned money in your bank.
Calling your Fresno dentist to schedule a bi-annual teeth cleaning is a good first step in maintaining your oral health. These appointments help alleviate possible problems by checking for cavities caused by residue left on the teeth and inadequate home care. If left untreated, cavities can lead to tooth decay.
Another reason for calling your Fresno dentist is to check for signs of gum disease which can cause your gums to recede, bone loss, and possible tooth loss. By checking your gums checked, your Fresno dentist will identify possible signs of gum disease in order to catch it quickly and halt the process.
Beyond tooth decay and gum disease, oral cancer is a difficult condition to detect on your own. You will need the professional help of a dental team in order for you to know whether or not you may show signs of cancer.
