Are You Apprehensive About Coming To Our Practice?
When was the last time that you paid a visit to our office? There are many patients who don’t believe regular dental appointments every six months are necessary unless they are experiencing a problem. We understand that the past few months have created some uneasiness and additional anxiety about the safety of visiting our office. Continue reading to find out why you should put your concerns aside and schedule your next appointment soon.
Against the popular opinion of our office and The American Dental Association, there are many patients who don’t believe it’s necessary to visit the dentist unless they are experiencing a problem. However, we believe that preventing a problem is better than waiting and having an even bigger problem to deal with, and we are not just referring to oral health. Taking a chance with your oral health opens up many additional overall health risks that can have long-term effects. Your oral health can be a huge indicator of more severe problems since that more than 90% of all bodily diseases can be linked to oral issues such as swollen and bleeding gums, mouth ulcers, and bad breath. Oral issues like these could be an indication of:
- Heart Disease
- Oral Cancer
We understand that the past few months have left some patients uncertain about visiting our office. We can assure you that we have taken numerous safety precautions to ensure that you are taken care of and out of harm’s way, especially with the addition of our new extraoral suction machine. Our goal is to keep your mouth and your body in top shape. So, if you are having reservations about your next appointment, please reach out, and we can explain all that we are doing to keep you safe.
If you are located in the Burton, MI area and have not scheduled your next dental cleaning and maintenance appointment, we are waiting to hear from you. We look forward to seeing you soon!
