They say ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’. That’s why our team at Aark Dental take the time to educate patients on the need for routine cleanings and examinations—and how to care for their teeth and gums on a daily basis to improve their oral health.
Regular visits to our office mean that potential problems are caught early on, before they become painful and require more costly action. For example, a cavity that is left untreated could eventually cause a tooth to abscess—a condition that usually requires a root canal and a course of antibiotics.
Routine cleanings help to improve the health of your gums by removing plaque and tartar from your teeth. Left unattended, tartar build-up can lead to gum disease—which can cause early tooth loss and infections. And the bacteria associated with gum disease are also linked to heart attacks, strokes, and other serious health problems. It’s very important to not neglect your oral health care and truly work towards a routine dental care program that speaks to your particular needs.
At Aark Dental, we believe strongly that prevention should begin at the youngest age possible. But it’s never too late to start. Whatever your situation, our goal is to build a comfortable and trusting relationship that will last a lifetime!
