Do you find yourself cringing when you eat foods that are extremely hot or cold? If so, you may be experiencing issues with tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity is not uncommon, and most people experience it at some point. If you experience tooth sensitivity regularly, it can be an indication that you have a problem with your oral health.
At Chichetti & Patel Dental Wellness, we are passionate about oral health. This is one of the reasons we recommend staying up to date with your routine oral hygiene examinations. During these appointments, we do more than just clean your teeth. We also thoroughly inspect them for signs of decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. Any of these issues can have serious and lasting effects if not diagnosed and treated in a timely fashion. Approximately more than 50,000 people are diagnosed with oral cancer each year. Oral cancer can be located anywhere in the mouth, including the tongue, lips, cheeks, gums, and throat. The good news is that oral cancer is quite treatable.
At Chichetti & Patel Dental Wellness, we are passionate about helping our patients with their overall health and wellness. This is why we stress the importance of regular oral hygiene examination visits in our office for you and your family. Even if you clean your teeth perfectly and are passionate about your oral hygiene, routine visits are still necessary. During these appointments, we not only thoroughly clean the teeth and remove any lingering plaque and bacteria, but we also inspect for any signs of decay, gum disease, and oral cancer.
