5 Reasons to Get A Dental Check-Up

Many individuals may have a slight fear of the dentists’ office. While it is relatively natural to feel this way, getting checkups every six months or so is optimal to your health. At Paradise Dental, we fully understand why you may feel a bit nervous or scared at first, and we do everything in our power to soothe you and ensure as positive an experience as possible.

On a similar note, it may seem daunting, or you may be confused as to why you need to go to the dentist this often. There are, in fact, many different reasons why you will want to stop by your dentist after we go over some of these reasons.

Oral Cancer Detection

As April is World Oral Cancer Awareness Month, we think it is appropriate that this is highlighted in this blog. By going for regular visits and getting X-rays as appropriate, your dentists can detect oral cancer. While this may seem quite scary, it is important to remember that the faster that it is detected, and the earlier it is treated, the better.

Cavity Detection

Cavities, while they may not seem like a huge deal, can cause other issues for you. Depending on the size of the cavity, you will be treated differently, but if you allow the cavity to continue its growth, you may be in trouble. Abscesses and tooth decay can have a lot of negative effects, including pain and more expensive procedures.

Plaque Buildup

The reason why people go to the dentist so often for a cleaning is to do exactly that…get a cleaning. While your dentist will also be examining your teeth for other issues, they will be removing plaque buildup, leaving your teeth squeaky clean!

Gum Disease Prevention

Gum disease affects many individuals, as it is very common. With proper dental care, you may not necessarily have an issue with gum disease. Making sure to floss, getting cleanings regularly, and brushing twice a day can all help to decrease the chances of gum disease or early signs of it.

Save Your Money!

By visiting your dentist regularly, you have a lesser chance of developing problems with your teeth that require further procedures, and therefore, you will not have to worry about the costs associated with furthered dental care.

First Class Facility. Modern equipment. Professional service. This is what I have come to expect from Drs' Steve and Helyne and their entire staff.

It's the fanciest dentist I have ever been to. I really like the moisturizing heated hand treatment they offer while you're getting your teeth cleaned. They have lots of other little extras that make this place stand out above the rest. The cleaning and exam were pretty typical, but no complaints. I'm always wary of getting advice to replace fillings when they aren't bothering me, but that didn't happen.

Great experience as always!!! State of the art office with a friendly and professional staff. I would not trust any other practice with my dental care.

My first visit consisted of a consultation with Dr, Helyne Hamelburg whom I found to be very calm and relaxing as I am not a fan of any dental procedure. I will be having gum surgery in a few weeks and am actually not fearing the procedure which I have been putting off for years. Office is certainly state of the art which I had never experienced anything like it. Glad she was recommended to me by another Doctor who knew she would be a good fit for me.

The providers, hygienists, the entire staff are wonderful. I can't recommend them enough. They are efficient, courteous, and the office is inviting. I never thought I would say this about a dental office, but I get relaxed there. You get treated like your the only patient they have.

Amazing! Accommodating! you can express your fears and they will help you avoid/overcome them! Would recommend them to everyone! oh! and the best part, they have all the state of the art equipment to make the visit fast, painless and less frequent appointments!
