How Often Should I See The Dentist for Regular Care?

January 9, 2014

general dentistryWith the start of a new year comes a new opportunity for focusing on your oral health. At Gentle Dental Care, your family dentist in Tyler, Tx., we recommend that all of our patients—adults and children alike—see Dr. Gerber twice a year for a checkup and cleaning. Regular care will help us learn everything we can about your needs, not to mention help us to better know you and your family.

Medical care is always better when there’s a personal relationship between the doctor and patient, which is something we strive for every day. Our friendly, knowledgeable Tyler team looks forward to seeing familiar faces and watching young ones as they grow.

Why Are Regular Checkups and Cleanings Important?

We’re all vulnerable to the same kinds of oral health problems, whether tooth decay and cavities or gum disease. But not every patient struggling with one of these experiences noticeable symptoms. Regular checkups are designed to help patients identify problems that might be flying under the radar so they can be treated—and the earlier they can be addressed the better. Other issues Dr. Gerber will look for include teeth grinding and clenching, plus signs of TMJ dysfunction, and even oral cancer.

If we find anything, we can put together a personalized treatment plan based on your current health and medical history. If you have any questions about the plan we recommend, we’ll be happy to answer them.

Are you ready to schedule your first appointment for 2014? Call Gentle Dental Care today to reserve an appointment with Dr. Gerber. Our office is located in Tyler and serves families from Whitehouse, Bullard, Lindale, Flint, and other nearby communities.
