Over the past year, a lot of us have gotten behind on our dental care. Here are five reasons why it’s time to call our Atlanta dentist:
- It’s Probably Been Over Six Months
Thanks to COVID shutdowns, a lot of us are behind on our dental cleanings. Typically, you want to schedule a checkup every six months. But in this case, it may have been a year or longer since we’ve seen you last.
- You Can’t Clean Tartar Off Your Teeth
Tartar accumulates over time as plaque begins to calcify. Although plaque can easily be cleaned away with a toothbrush and floss, tartar can’t. Your hygienist will use special tools to safely remove tartar deposits before they contribute to something serious like periodontal disease.
- “Mask Mouth”
Wearing a mask everywhere you go has had a negative impact on some of our mouths. Dry mouth and bad breath are two great examples. During your dental cleaning we’ll help get things back in tip-top shape, then discuss ways to improve the tissues inside of your mouth.
- You Want to Catch Issues Early
Maybe you’re starting to get a cavity or leaky filling, but you don’t even know it. By intercepting issues today (before they hurt) we can prevent major, more complex issues a few months down the road.
- It’s Covered by Your Insurance
If you have dental insurance, your plan probably covers a dental cleaning at 100% coverage twice a year. If you don’t use it, you lose it. These preventative care appointments can save you plenty of money in the future.
