When’s The Last Time We Saw Your Face?
When was the last time you visited our office for a hygiene examination and cleaning appointment? If it has been some time or you can’t remember when your last visit was, you may be due for an appointment. We understand that life is busy. Now that it is the summer, you may be traveling or unable to schedule a visit at this time. We want to encourage our patients to make their oral health and their families’ oral health a priority. Failure to receive regular examinations and cleanings in our office can lead to serious complications with your oral health. Read on to learn more.
Why are Routine Hygiene Examinations Important?
Whether your life is busy or you have been forgetting to schedule your routine hygiene examination appointment, we recommend calling today to schedule a visit for you and your loved ones. During these appointments, we not only thoroughly clean your teeth, but we also look for signs of decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. The longer you go between appointments, the more a possible condition can progress. If you have a problem area in your mouth that is not treated, it may eventually lead to a dental emergency. We would hate for any of our patients to experience discomfort or be in a situation where they need immediate dental care.
Be Honest with Us
If you have not visited our office because you have dental anxiety, you are not alone. We encourage our nervous patients to be honest with our team when they call for an appointment. We want to help you feel as comfortable as possible. We can explain any treatments to help you relax as much as possible. Failure to receive routine and necessary dental care can lead to significant problems with your oral health and more time in our office.
If you are unsure when we saw you for your last appointment or you are looking to schedule your next visit, be sure to contact our office, which is located in Meridian, ID. I look forward to seeing you soon!
