Why Should I Go to a Dentist?

Patients of all ages need to go to dentists as they are the primary dental care providers. Besides offering you preventive services, your dentist will also take the responsibility for your overall oral health needs that includes the identification, treatment, management and coordination of the required processes. In case your condition needs the services of a specialist, your dentist can arrange for the appropriate referrals and ensure that there’s continuity in the maintenance of your oral health care.

 If you want to maintain healthy teeth and gums, you should not defer your regular visits to the dentist. Remember- a regular visit to your dentist is the key to good oral health. According to Dr. LaFrom – one of the leading dentists in Cupertino, gum disease and tooth decay are the biggest risks for adults who neglect receiving regular dental care. He suggests that it’s necessary to build a habit of regular checkups for children, so that they continue with the habit even when they grow older. If children are taken regularly to dentists as early as when they are one year old, it will protect them from problems like teething irritations, baby bottle tooth decay, prolonged thumb sucking and some other gum diseases. Such an early check up will also help them to fight cavities during their early years.

Remember – visiting a dentist regularly will help you maintain your oral health and get small problems treated at the first instance before they become bigger and more problematic ones. So, you should go to a dentist on a regular basis. Perhaps you too would echo the feelings of Dr LaFrom’s patient, Kurt who says: “You are the best quality Dental Experts and the best people and personalities of any office facility. I really enjoy coming to the Dentist and to see you guys. I could not be happier.”
