At The DC Dentist we look at each patient’s overall health and well-being. We work hard to provide you with the best care possible. Having regular checkups every 6 months or sooner not only helps to prevent problems but provides you with good oral hygiene.
1. Prevention of Oral Cancer
Everyone who steps through our doors receives a free oral cancer screening. Did you know that 90% of diseases begin in the mouth? Let us help you maintain good health overall.
2. Help avoid Gum Disease
Brushing, flossing and rinsing your mouth is done in conjunction with seeing your holistic dentist every 6 months. If gum disease is diagnosed early we can help treat and reduce the effects, otherwise it could lead to loss of teeth.
3. Have good health
Having clean teeth is a team effort. Poor hygiene habits can lead to a host of problems like gum disease, bone loss, infections, heart disease, etc. Good oral health leads to good overall health.
4. Maintain your natural teeth
Did you know that having your own teeth in your mouth can prolong your life for at least 10 years? A leading reason adult’s loose teeth is due to gum disease. Having teeth keeps your digestive track in order, allowing you to chew and digest your food properly. Our fuel is our food and must be chewed properly to aid in our digestion.
5. Early detection of problems
If every time you washed your body your arm or leg was bleeding you would probably not wait to see the Doctor. The same goes for your gums. If they bleed every time you brush or floss or while chewing you should come in and see the Dentist. Don’t wait for problems to get worse, see the Dentist regularly to avoid extensive problems later. Treating cavities, broken teeth, and gum disease early on will help prevent extended and expensive damage later.
