You may not know everything that your Paducah dentist can offer you when you come for your next visit.
While our oral health is just as important as our overall health, we often don’t put it first in our to-do-lists. In fact, one-quarter of adults admit that they haven’t seen the dentist in the last two years. This is despite the fact that seeing the dentist each year could actually reduce your risk of developing tooth decay by about 60 percent. However, there is more to general dentistry than meets the eye. The next time you go in to see your Paducah dentist, you may also reap these additional benefits:
Oral care instruction
While brushing and flossing might seem as habitual as brushing your hair you might be surprised to know that you could be doing it wrong. This daily task requires meticulous care in order to be most effective. And who would know better about how to care for your smile than your very own Paducah dentist?
Of course we are certainly here to clean your teeth and treat your dental problems; however, we can also sit down with you and talk about the best ways to brush and floss your teeth. There are no stupid questions when it comes to your oral care and we are happy to show you some helpful tips you can use at home.
Did you know that one in seven adults suffer from dental anxiety? This is often the reason that keeps people from seeing their dentist regularly; however, the next time you schedule your dental appointment ask your Paducah dentist about sedation dentistry. Through oral or inhalation sedation we can offer our patients a stress-free and relaxed setting no matter what dental procedure you are having done. If even the idea of a simple dental cleaning has you nervous, opt for sedation dentistry.
Treating sensitive teeth
Many people deal with some level of tooth sensitivity. If you are one of those people you may have ignored it or thought nothing could be done. But think again! While we can recommend certain types of toothpastes and mouth rinses to help combat this problem we also offer other treatment options (e.g., dental bonding or crowns) that may also be effective, depending on the cause of your sensitivity.
If you are one of the 25 percent who hasn’t seen their Paducah dentist as routinely as they should, it’s never too late to start. Call Dr. Jeffrey L. Holland, DMD at Holland Dental and treat your smile like the asset that it is.
