Nashua area dentist describes the importance of general dentistry
Patients who visit Nashua Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry for dental care are often interested in learning about the ways to achieve and maintain oral health and wellness. Drs. Judith Whitcomb and Randall Viola are dedicated to helping patients with general care for healthier smiles. Many patients overlook general care, including cleanings, examinations, and x-rays to monitor oral health.
It is important for patients to consider the benefits of routine dental visits and general dentistry. Cleanings and examinations keep the smile looking great and give our dental staff the opportunity to evaluate the smile for potential problems. Many dental concerns that can arise over time can be easily addressed in the early stages. The earlier the dentist can intervene, the easier it will be to treat. Some conditions, such as periodontal disease, should be caught as soon as possible to keep them from progressing to more severe stages. Additionally, cavities that become extremely large may require more intensive treatment such as root canal therapy or extraction. Early intervention is the key to better oral health and wellness over time.
Patients are encouraged to visit the dentist every six months for a cleaning and evaluation. X-rays are taken to check the health of the teeth underneath the gum line, below where the dentist can physically see concerns. When combined, these examinations give the dentist a complete picture of a patient’s oral health.
