If it’s been a long time since you’ve seen a dentist, you are not alone. Some 100 million Americans fail to see a dentist each year. The reasons are many—from dental anxiety, to thinking it’s been too long, to having no visible dental issues.
It’s never too late or too long between visits to schedule a dental checkup. Dr. Douglas Angell would like to remind you why regular dental visits are important:
- they can help spot oral health problems early on when treatment is likely to be simpler and more affordable
- they can help prevent many oral problems from developing in the first place
- some diseases or medical conditions have symptoms that can appear in the mouth
even if you don’t have any symptoms, you can still have oral health problems that only a dentist can diagnose
So if it’s been a while since your last dental visit, give us a call. We won’t lecture you about the condition of your teeth or point fingers. A large part of our training and professional work involves being exposed to just about every dental problem you can imagine. We understand that dental health is affected by a number of factors that could be environmental, hereditary or habitual.
And you can talk to us about dental anxiety issues so we can do everything possible to make your visits and treatment as comfortable as possible.
Our goals are to help you keep your mouth healthy as part of your overall health, and to ensure that you have a positive experience getting the dental care you need.
Dr. Douglas Angell and the staff at Angell’s Dentistry are waiting to hear from you. Give us a call to schedule an appointment for a dental checkup and be sure to visit our website at: www.angellsdentistry.com.
