The holiday season is here, which means the next few weeks are going to be very busy, with tons of shopping, traveling, and more. But we don’t want you to forget about your smile! Now is a great time to schedule a checkup with your Leawood, KS, dentist and use your 2023 benefits before they expire!
The Checkup Process
The dental exam is a simple process and one that benefits patients of all ages, from kids to teens and adults, and even seniors! The process involves our team taking a close look at your teeth, gums, roots, and oral structures with advanced imaging technology, such as digital x-rays and intraoral cameras. We then use the images and information to make a diagnosis with precision and accuracy, identifying possible areas of concern in the earliest stages. Often, we can identify issues like tooth decay and gingivitis in the early stages before you experience discomfort. We also screen for oral cancer, watch for TMJ and bruxism concerns, and also assess your risk for gum disease.
In the same visit, we will clean your teeth. A dental cleaning removes what brushing and flossing alone cannot, taking away all of the plaque and tartar buildup that can threaten your oral health. This buildup is linked to cavities, infection, gum disease, and even bad breath and teeth stains. So, a cleaning before the holidays means you attend your get-together with brighter smiles! We use an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual tool to gently and thoroughly break up and remove all plaque and tartar. We then polish the teeth, which makes it more difficult for plaque and tartar to adhere to the teeth, and also leave a brighter smile.
Use Your Benefits
Do you have dental insurance coverage for 2023, or a health savings account? If so, then you have funds and benefits that will expire at the end of December unless used. Instead of leaving this on the table, why not talk to our team about a checkup and treatment for your oral health concerns, so you can put them to good use before they’re gone! If you have any questions about our checkup and cleanings, or if you have a concern with your smile you would like to see addressed, then please reach out to our team today to learn more. We want to help you smile with confidence in 2024 and beyond!
