Why Seeing the Dentist is So Important

When is the last time you saw the dentist? If its been longer than 6 months you might be putting your self in harms way, both financially and physically. Did you know….

REASONS FOR THE 6-MONTH DENTAL VISIT RULE

REASONS FOR THE RULE:

  • Dental Cleanings Help Prevent Gum Disease & Tooth Decay
  • Keep Your Smile Bright by Polishing and Removing Stains
  • Eliminate Harmful Plaque and Tartar Build Up 
  • Monitor Your Oral Health
  • Examine Your Teeth for Decay
  • Provide an Oral Cancer Screenings
  • To Prevent Pain and Infections by Finding Problems Early

WHAT CAN HAPPEN IF YOU DON’T GO…

  • The Ability to Prevent Common Dental Issues is Gone Therefore, The Result is Much Larger, More Painful, and Expensive Procedures
  • Greater Risk of Developing Many Oral Diseases
  • Yellowing and Staining of Teeth
  • More Likely to Develop Gum Disease or Even Lose Teeth
  • Smaller Issues are More Likely to Become Major Issues

While the list may seem shorter if you don’t see the dentist, the underlying consequences are much greater! At the end of the day, health starts with your mouth from what you eat to how you maintain it. Do yourself and your body a favor and take the preventative route by seeing the dentist. Checkups will save time, money, and pain in the long run. So the next time you think about putting off your dental visit, think about what can happen if you don’t go.

COVID-19 UPDATE

On March 19, Gov. Jay Inslee announced new restrictions on non-urgent medical and dental procedures so we can do our part to limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, and free up our protective equipment. The order applies to any non-urgent procedure that requires medical and dental. From now until May 18, 2020, all dental offices in Washington State must limit care to emergency treatment, including our practice. 


Please note that effective March 23rd, all elective dental appointments, including cleanings, between now and May 18th will need to be rescheduled. Please wait for our team to reach out to reschedule your appointment. Emergency care is any condition that, if delayed, is anticipated to cause harm to the patient within the next three months. Our goal is to see the fewest patients, keep you safe, pain-free, and healthy. If you are unsure if you have a true emergency please call Kelsey or Tamara at 425-778-1164 for help.
