How Preventive Dentistry Can Help You In the Long Run
James S. Cinamon, DMD, PC, FAGD, FICD and Paul J. Hubley, DMD, PC recommends that each of their patients come in for routine dental check-ups every six months. In fact, twice a year is the standard recommendation you would hear from any dentist in Framingham, MA. You may ask yourself; if I don't have any dental problems, are routine check-ups really that important? As it turns out, they are.
There are two kinds of dentistry that Dr. Jim Cinamon and Dr. Paul Hubley routinely perform: preventative dentistry and restorative dentistry. Restorative dentistry fixes dental problems that have already occurred. Stop dental problems from occurring in the first place with preventative dentistry!
Preventative dentistry offers several benefits. It is generally cheaper, easier and less invasive. You get to keep your own natural teeth instead of needing artificial teeth, implants, crowns or fillings. You can work your appointments around your busy schedule instead of needing to drop everything to see the dentist for an emergency procedure. Plus, preventative dentistry is generally less painful.
Visiting Drs. Cinamon and Hubley Comprehensive Restorative Dentistry in Framingham, MA for preventative dentistry is important because they can take better care of your teeth than you can alone. The truth is, even if you brush, floss and rinse every day, you will never rid your mouth of all of the germs and bacteria that live there. Plaque will still build up and decay is more likely to spread, leaving you at risk for cavities, gum disease and even oral cancer. Registered Dental Hygienist’s, employed in dental offices, with their special tools can get into the narrow spaces and crevices that your toothbrush and mouthwash alone simply cannot reach.
Don't wait until you need major dental work done before scheduling a visit with your favorite Framingham, MA dentist - either Dr. Jim Cinamon or Dr. Paul Hubley. Schedule and keep routine appointments now so your visits will always be quick, easy and pain-free.
