Why Regular Visits To A Las Vegas Dentist Matter: The Importance of Regular Dental Checkups and Teeth Cleaning.
The most current research now shows that a healthy body is dependent upon a healthy mouth. A disease-free smile can boost self-confidence, lower the risk of heart disease, and reduce the possibility of infection and inflammation in the body. Though brushing and flossing are the foundations of good oral hygiene, visiting a general dentist regularly will not only preserve your smile, but allow Dr. Hollingshead to spot potential oral health problems early.
The American Dental Association recommends seeing a general dentist twice a year for regular checkups. Gum disease can be blamed for 70 percent of tooth loss, and more than 80 percent of Americans over the age of 35 have some form of gum disease. Scheduling preventive dental care is instrumental in spotting gum disease early, when it’s treatable with minimally invasive therapies.
During your visit, we can also determine if you have more pressing dental issues, such as bruxism or sleep apnea. Dr. Hollingshead will discuss any symptoms you’re experiencing and perform a complete examination to determine the cause. Nightguards for bruxism and sleep apnea/snoring therapy are available in our general dentistry office with minimal visits.
We also encourage our senior patients to visit our office regularly. Aging presents greater risks for certain types of dental problems. Screening for oral cancers and preventive general dental care become especially important to preserving your smile and your vitality.l
Protecting your teeth now could prevent, and possibly eliminate, the need for restorative dentistry in the future. Our general dentistry services include:
- Dental Checkups and Cleaning
- Nightguards for Bruxism
- Sleep Apnea/Snoring Therapy
- Periodontal Therapy
- Senior Dental Care
