Coming into the dental office for regular checkups can actually save you a lot of money in the long run. Regular checkups and dental cleanings can protect you from other problems that can happen very quickly and remain unnoticed until you are in pain. Being in pain is what brings many people in to see a dentist when they haven’t been in for years. Sadly, this is not the best time to be coming into the dentist after years of neglect. Once you are in pain, it can mean that you have a deep cavity and may need a root canal. Root canals can be very expensive so some people may choose to have their tooth pulled. It’s very important to see the dentist often in order to alleviate these kinds of problems. The sad fact about pulling a tooth, is that it leads to other problems. Your teeth that surround the area where the tooth was pulled, can begin to move. This in turn can lead to other problems such as receding gums. This in turn can lead to infections or periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can actually lead to heart problems. It can be a terrible downhill climb.

Your smile can say a lot about you. Unfortunately for some people, their smile says more about them than they realize. Often times, we are judged by others from our teeth. If your teeth are yellow or if they have chips and spaces, or missing teeth, we may be judged unfairly by others. Even applying for a job can cause others to assume something about us, because of our teeth, even though it may not be true. Let Loveland Family Dental take care of your adult dental care. If you have missing teeth, they can do a dental implant or they can give you a bridge. If you have less than attractive teeth, they will be able to take care of all of your cosmetic problems. Dental veneers can make less than attractive teeth look like beautiful teeth. Let the dentist discuss with you the cost of these different procedures. If you choose to have your teeth fixed, you will be amazed at your new smile. Having your teeth fixed after years of trying to hide your teeth, will be absolutely thrilling. Smiling as big as you can while looking in the mirror can reveal a new “you” that looks very different than the other “you.”
