Why You Should See The Dentist Before The End Of The Year
With the end of 2023 fast approaching, now is a fantastic time to evaluate your oral health. Are you in need of an oral hygiene examination or a recommended treatment? We know that this time of year can be hectic, but it is important to make your oral health a priority. The longer you wait to get a cleaning or treatment, the greater the chance you have of experiencing a dental emergency. We would hate for something unfortunate to happen during this joyous time of year. Read on to learn more.
Schedule Your Next Appointment Today!
When was the last time you visited our office for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning? If it has been longer than six months, you are due for an appointment. We recommend patients visit our office every four to six months, depending on the state of their oral health. During these appointments, we not only thoroughly clean your teeth, but we also check your mouth for issues such as decay and gum disease. Unfortunately, dental problems do not heal on their own and will continue to progress until you receive treatment. Delaying dental care increases your likelihood of experiencing a dental emergency, and the holiday season is one of the worst times of year for that to happen.
We encourage you to be honest with our team. If you have delayed your appointment due to nervous feelings, we want to know. We see many patients who experience some form of anxiety when visiting our office, and we want to do all we can to help you feel safe and comfortable while in our care.
If you need to schedule an appointment for yourself or a loved one, be sure to contact our office, which is located in Charlotte, NC. We can also assist if you are unsure of the date of your last visit or if you need to schedule a recommended treatment. If you have any remaining insurance benefits, call our office today to ensure you don’t lose them, as many dental insurance benefits expire at the end of the calendar year. We look forward to seeing you soon!
