Your Dentist Wants To Know Where You’ve Been!

March 29, 2024

Your friendly dentist at Valstad Dental has a question: Where have you been? We consider our patients to be part of our extended family, and when one member of the family hasn’t stopped by for a visit in a while, we like to check in and ask how you’re doing. 

Sure, life gets busy. We understand! But we’d like to issue this gentle reminder about the risks of skipping regular visits to our office for a thorough exam, professional cleaning, and X-rays to get a clear look at what’s changed since we last saw you.

Let’s start by pointing out that the American Dental Association

recommends office visits an average of every six months so we can catch potential problems before they become more serious or expensive conditions. 

Here are some important messages your mouth may be sending you if you’ve been stretching out the time between visits or skipping appointments altogether:

  • Persistent bad breath, also known as halitosis,can be a sign of built-up plaque and tartar on your teeth. Even if you’ve been brushing and flossing as directed, these pesky bacterial byproducts can make themselves at home in your mouth without a thorough professional cleaning.
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold foods and beverages can be a sign of tooth decay, worn enamel, or exposed tooth roots. Our dentist can zero in on the cause and recommend treatment if needed.
  • Are your gums tender or bleeding? This can be an early sign of gum disease, which can lead to a serious infection or even tooth loss if not detected and treated promptly. 

At Valstad Dental, we prefer to practice preventive dentistry rather than treating emergencies. Why wait until something goes wrong, when regular checkups can save you the time, discomfort and expense of a serious health issue? Besides that, we miss you! Please contact us today to schedule an appointment!
