Tooth Watch: Early Detection
Why Early Detection is so Important
Wouldn’t you say that the best dental treatment is the one you never had to undergo in the first place—because it was caught and corrected in time? We sure would!
We’re always on the lookout for a potential problem that can be avoided. That’s why during any checkup, we specialize in early detection to let you know about any problem areas we might see, and are of course happy to demonstrate proper brushing/flossing techniques anytime. Often, you can avoid future chair time with just a little TLC.
There’s another good reason for regular dental appointments. Your mouth is a sort of distant early warning system of all sorts of things going on: in your teeth, gums, soft tissue—even parts of your body far from the oral cavity. Early detection means we have a head start on the cure.
