Do you remember your semi-annual checkup at the dentist, or, do you usually let it slide due to a busy schedule? If you are like the many who skip a trip to the dentist, then you can be putting your oral health at risk. Here at Bright Smiles Dental in Casselberry, Florida, our office takes pride in keeping your smile healthy and clean, but part of that is understanding the importance of your dental exams. That is why our team is happy to talk to you about dental exams and why they are important for your smile.

Dental exams include a wide variety of benefits. Some of these include catching cavities before they become too large or need costly treatments. If you can catch a cavity and take care of it while it is small, the chances of needing other procedures like a root canal, dental crowns, or even dental implants become very slim. That is why it is important to catch oral health concerns early.

Dental exams also inspect your smile for oral cancer. Cancer has swept the globe in many different forms putting lives at risk each day. Oral cancer can be equally dangerous when left untreated. That is why having a checkup every six months can be beneficial to catching any cancer early to begin treatment before it becomes too late or severe to manage.

Having a healthy smile is vital to your overall health. Having a healthy mouth is not only beautiful, but beneficial for long-term benefits. If you feel it’s time for a dental exam, or would like your dental cleaning early, please call our office today at 407-628-1066 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Timothy B. Chatterley. Our team stands ready to take your call and give you a healthy smile you can be proud of!
