Alpers Dental Now Offering Smile Protection Plan to Patients

When it comes to keeping your smile healthy, bright and attractive, there is simply no substitute for regular dental check-ups and effective preventive care. Of course, most peoAlpers_Photople are aware that they should see a dentist regularly, having been told so many times, but those admonishments often come with few details on exactly why it is so important. Here, we’ll go into those details, explaining how your dental and overall health can benefit from regular dental visits, and how the Alpers Smile Protection Plan can make it easier to reap those benefits.

What You Can Expect From Routine Dental Visits

These visits involve a careful examination of your mouth, teeth and gums, which may include dental imaging, to detect early signs of dental problems, such as gum disease, tooth damage or loosening, tooth decay or issues with prior fillings or dental work. Detecting these issues early generally makes them easier – and less expensive – to resolve than if let go until they become obvious, painful or even dangerous larger problems. Professional dental cleaning is also part of these routine visits and provide benefits that include removing stains for whiter, brighter teeth and the removal of bacteria-laden plaque build-up that could gradually eat away at tooth enamel to cause tooth decay and/or damage the gums, causing gum disease, gum recession and eventually, tooth loss.

Why Regular Dental Care Matters

Aside from good daily brushing and flossing habits, seeing your dentist at least twice a year for teeth cleaning and dental health check-ups is the most important thing you can do to keep your teeth and gums in great shape, which, of course, is essential to a bright, confident smile. Good dental health is also important to your overall health in a number of ways. Perhaps most important of these is the connection between oral health and cardiovascular health, with studies showing that gum disease and gum infections significantly increase a person’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease, including heart attack and stroke.
