Preventative Dental Care

You hear it all the time, “Visit the dentist twice a year!”. But so many patients still do not. Chapel Hill dentist Dr. James Furgurson wants you to know the importance of preventive dental care that includes regular visits to the dentist office.

Benefits of Preventative Dental Care

  1. Fewer Cavities, Less Pain- Brushing and flossing in combination with regular professional dental cleanings can slow the deterioration of your teeth’s enamel. When your tooth enamel erodes it can lead to tooth loss, cavities, and tooth sensitivity. By brushing and flossing twice a day, and visiting the dentist twice a year, you can keep your tooth enamel strong and avoid the development of painful dental concerns.
  2. Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease- Taking care of your teeth and gums can help to keep dangerous mouth bacteria in check. Gum disease affects many American adults. Advanced gum disease is directly linked to an increase for the development of cardiovascular disease. Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in America. Early diagnosis and proactive dental health care can help patients avoid developing advanced gum disease. Dr. Furgurson offer quality periodontal therapy for any stage of gum disease.
  3. Healthy & Bright Smile- Professional dental cleanings and your at home oral hygiene routine can keep your teeth whiter longer. Clean teeth are more aesthetically pleasing and are generally healthier. Proper oral hygiene can also help you avoid embarrassing halitosis.
  4. Build Trust- Going to dentist when nothing is wrong can help you, and your children, to build a healthy doctor- patient relationship with your dentist. Knowing your dentist and feeling comfortable in our family friendly Chapel Hill dentist office will help you and your family ease your anxiety if you do require a more advanced dental procedure. Our compassionate dental care team will work to make you feel safe and comfortable every time you visit us.
