Stay on top of these 6 issues With Your Next Hygiene Appointment

Have you ever missed a hygiene appointment? It can be easy to forget these regularly needed check-ups, which is why we here at Kopp Dental & Associates try to remind you to schedule your preventative appointments as early as possible.

Skipping your hygiene appointments can lead to serious and costly issues in the future.

Keep your teeth shiny and clean

During a scheduled cleaning, our hygienist , Janine removes surface stains and polishes your teeth to a sparkling shine. Having this completed every six months can help you maintain a whiter smile.

Gum disease can lead to other health issues

Gum disease is one of the leading causes of adult tooth loss. If caught and diagnosed early by Dr Kopp, Dr Elia or Dr Guzaitis, it can be treated and reversed. As if that wasn’t enough, gum disease can also be linked to heart attacks and strokes. Keep your mouth AND heart healthy with regular hygiene visits.

Bigger dental problems can be more costly

During your regular hygiene appointments, we can detect early warning signs that there may be trouble ahead. Cavities and gum disease can be caught early and easily treated. If left unchecked, they could lead to root canals, gum surgery, and even more costly procedures.

Keep your teeth for a lifetime

To maintain oral health and longevity, it’s vital to get your teeth and gums checked carefully every six months during your hygiene appointments. Problems that could result in tooth loss, if caught early, can be treated and possibly reversed.

Use up those insurance benefits

Dental insurance typically covers some of the cost of preventative appointments. Use your benefits before you lose them and avoid more costly procedures later on.

Prevent Halitosis

Good oral hygiene – including regular check-ups and cleanings – can help prevent halitosis, also known as bad breath. Keep your teeth AND your friends by maintaining a consistent hygiene routine.

Missing hygiene appointments can result in costly and painful problems later on. Now is the time to take the first step towards a healthier smile and a healthier you. Call and schedule your next hygiene appointment with Kopp Dental and Associates at 630-941-8398
