Call Your Doctor Day: Importance of Routine Dental Visits

Every year we celebrate National Call Your Doctor Day. This is a perfect time to highlight the importance of preventive dentistry. Many patients forego preventive treatments, despite the fact that preventive care is the best way to stay healthy.

With routine visits to Dr. Yoni and Dr. Bean of Green Leaf Dental in Seward Park, you can keep your mouth healthy, and ensure that you’re free of common oral health problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Below, we’ll discuss just a few reasons that routine visits to our office are so important!

1. Routine Visits Help Identify Oral Health Issues Early

The biggest benefit of a routine dental visit is that Dr. Yoni, Dr. Bean, and our team of oral hygienists can keep track of your oral health, and be on the lookout for potential issues like cavities, or signs of gum disease.

In addition, routine visits to the dentist can help identify other oral and whole-body health issues. Oral cancer, for example, is often first identified by dentists thanks to routine oral cancer exams, and the health of your mouth could also indicate that other serious health issues like diabetes.

2. A Routine Dental Visit Can Save You Time and Money

Routine dental visits are inexpensive and are usually covered by dental insurance plans, making them the best investment you can make in your oral care. Without regular routine dental visits, your risk for cavities and other oral health issues rises.

It’s much more expensive to treat these oral health issues after they occur, compared to simply preventing them with proper cleaning and hygiene, and it’s also more time-consuming to get a treatment like a filling for a cavity. By seeing Green Leaf Dental every six months for a consultation, you’ll save both time and money.

3. Your Teeth Will Look Bright and Beautiful 

Even with proper brushing and flossing, hard-to-remove plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth, which is difficult or impossible to remove on your own. At our office, our team of hygienists uses special scalers and high-powered brushes to remove plaque and tartar and keep your smile looking great.

4. Cleanings and Exams Encourage Better Overall Oral Health

You and your entire family will all benefit from better overall oral health, thanks to regular visits to our office. Our team of hygienists will remove plaque and bacteria from your mouth, and you’ll get all of the information you need from Dr. Yoni and Dr. Bean to make sure that you’re caring for your teeth and your mouth properly.
