You’ve not seen a dentist in several years. Perhaps it was a lack of dental coverage, or maybe it was that life gets busy and you forget. Whatever the circumstances, the time has come to seek out a Lincoln Park dentist and start paying more attention to your teeth. Here are two ways a dental professional can help.
Creating a Baseline for Your Dental Care
A full dental exam by a Lincoln Park dentist makes it possible to establish a starting point or baseline for your future dental care. The exam identifies what’s working and what needs to change. If you’re fortunate, the exam will confirm that you need to come in for a thorough cleaning and possibly change to a higher quality toothpaste and toothbrush.
Helping You Replace Poor Hygiene Habits with Good Ones
It’s easy to pick up poor dental hygiene habits like not brushing long enough or not using the toothbrush properly. A Lincoln Park dentist can help you dump those bad habits and replace them with good ones. You’ll soon be brushing with the proper strokes for a reasonable amount of time. You may finally know how to make the most of dental floss too.
The point is that it’s not too late to start paying attention to your teeth. Visit a dentist and commit to coming in at least a couple of times annually. You’ll thank yourself in the years to come.
