Dental visits in the eyes of many are considered an unpleasant experience. The truth is, though, that dental visits do not always have to be uncomfortable. Furthermore, visiting our Jacksonville dentist will assure a wide range of benefits you might not have otherwise envisioned. In an emergency, our emergency dentist can actually be necessary to help prevent further issues. Regular visits to Atlantic Dentistry will ensure your oral health remains at its best.
Regular dental visits are useful in dealing with or preventing dental issues and diseases. One of the most common dental issues most people face is gingivitis. Gingivitis, which comes from the build-up of tartar and plaque on the gumline or under the gums, can lead to periodontal disease. Without treatment, this can easily lead to the inflammation of the gum tissues, which is detrimental to the overall health of the individual. Visiting our dentist will reduce the chances of this happening by providing dental cleanings.
Every dental visit will typically involve some form of an oral exam and dental cleaning. Research shows that having teeth professionally cleaned has many health benefits. For instance, dentists believe regular cleanings reduce the risks of such serious issues as heart attacks and strokes. These are conditions that result from the chronic inflammation of the gums. Regular cleaning of the gums can also prevent the accumulation of inflammation-causing bacteria.
Like most cancers, the chances of treating oral cancer are higher if detected early. Oral cancers pose a serious health threat. Regular checkups and exams by dentists can help catch the disease sooner, essentially a life-saving benefit. Signs of oral cancers, especially when considered in isolation, might not cause alarm. Most people who suffer from oral cancers might complain of such issues as unusual bleeding of the gums, white patches on the gums, wounds, or ulcers that do not heal. Visits to your dentist will likely involve oral cancer screening and advice on how to either deal with or prevent the development of oral cancer.
Preventing Future Dental Issues
Visiting us regularly allows our dentist to detect any problems in their early stages before they develop into more serious conditions. If we detect even the slightest hint of a cavity or notice that your gums are unhealthy, you can receive immediate treatment and prevent the further development of such issues as tooth decay or eventual tooth loss. Tooth decay and gum disease are common issues, but they are hardly ever treated as early as necessary because most people do not visit the dentist quickly enough.
We provide Invisalign clear aligners to help provide solutions to such issues as crooked and misaligned teeth. We create a tailored Invisalign treatment plan based on your specific malocclusion problem.
Additionally, we perform dental implants if you lose teeth due to disease, decay, trauma, or extraction. Dental implants are considered the most reliable tooth replacement option you can get today. They provide a permanent solution, with artificial teeth that look, function, and feel like natural teeth.
We want to help you avoid serious dental issues or complications. Call (904) 644-3020 and reach out to Atlantic Dentistry today to schedule an appointment for a dental visit.
