What is the best way to avoid a dental emergency?
Avoiding a dental emergency and a trip to our Lake Worth dental office is usually pretty straightforward. At Palms Dental Care, we believe that the best dental treatment is the dentistry you can prevent, which is why we recommend having twice-yearly dental exams and cleanings for most healthy patients.
Digital Dental X-Rays
An essential component of these dental appointments includes periodic x-rays to detect conditions that are not visible with the naked eye alone. Some potential diseases the can crop up beneath the visible part of the tooth include decay, bone loss, and infection.
Regular Dental Cleanings
Our routine dental exams and cleanings are much more than just a quick visit. Your dentist and hygienist work in tandem to identify and treat periodontal (gum) disease, which impacts over half of American adults. Gum disease has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and a host of other conditions that put your overall health at risk.
Personalized Dental Care
In some cases, patients may require more frequent visits to avoid dental emergencies. At our Lake Worth dental practice, we personalize treatments plans based on your current oral health needs.
We look forward to seeing you at your next visit and if you are looking for a new dentist in the area, give us a call! We always welcome new patients.
