The Importance of Regular Dental Visits

Many of us don’t take the time to visit our favorite Boynton Beach Dentist until we are experiencing some sort of dental emergency or pain. Preventative routine visits with Dr. Howard Goldberg can provide you with a range of benefits that go beyond ensuring you don’t find yourself in significant pain at the most inconvenient of times.

Regular dental visits with your dentist, Dr. Howard Goldberg, are an essential part of maintaining healthy teeth, and gums.

Identifying Minor Issues, Before They are Major Issues

Left untreated a small cavity can fast lead to a much larger cavity that requires a root canal, and may even result in the total loss of the tooth. With routine check-ups Dr. Goldberg will be able to identify small cavities, and other minor issues that could include cracks or tooth shifting, and treat them before they turn into a major dental problem for you.
A number of dental issues are not always easily seen with the naked eye, particularly in their early stages. Dr. Howard Goldberg will be able to identify them during your check-up when he examines each of your teeth and evaluates the health of each tooth and the surrounding gum.
Keeping your routine dental visits will ensure you have a healthy mouth, and also ensure that you have a smile you are proud of.

Beyond Your Teeth and Gums

During your examination Dr. Howard Goldberg, DDS will be able to do more than evaluating the health of your teeth and your gums. Dr. Goldberg will be able to gain an insight into some other health concerns that you may be unaware of.

An examination of your mouth can show your dentist signs of an iron or other vitamin deficiencies that can wreak havoc on the rest of your body. Other serious health concerns often manifest symptoms in the mouth, including certain forms of cancer, diabetes, and osteoporosis.

Your dentist will be able to identify concerns, and help leads you to the right treatment plan.

Improving Your Smile

While conducting your examination in his Boynton Beach, FL office, Dr. Goldberg will assess any treatments that may be necessary; and in many cases may be able to resolve small issues at the same appointment. Cavities can be filled, loose teeth can be evaluated, and abscesses can be treated.

A cleaning is also often conducted at your visit. This will remove tartar from your teeth, and ensure you have a much brighter and healthier smile.

Don’t Skip Children’s Visits

It can be tempting to think that because your children still have their baby teeth that you can give regular dental visits a skip. The truth is that regular visits to your Boynton Beach Dentist will ensure that your children’s dental health gets off on the right footing. You are never too young to have a healthy mouth and happy smile.

There are many treatment options that your Boynton Beach, FL dentist can offer you, for any number of concerns that may crop up. You can do your part between visits by brushing, flossing, and maintaining a healthy diet. Be sure to mention to Dr. Howard Goldberg at your visit any tooth sensitivity, pain, or loose teeth or fillings that you may have.
