Dr. Kemahli agrees with the recommendation of the American Dental Association to schedule dental exams and cleanings every six months. These are easy appointments that offer tremendous benefits and won’t take much time out of your busy schedule.
Dental exams with our Bellevue dentist on a routine basis help you in several ways. You benefit because seeing us periodically for checkups helps you avoid the discomfort of dental problems and the need for complex or costly dentistry.
Teeth cleanings every six months are crucial. Periodontal disease is a widespread problem that affects half of all US adults over age 30. It’s not just an oral health problem because bacteria in your mouth can travel to other parts of your body. Researchers are finding new connections every day, but so far, gum disease has been linked to heart and lung disease, diabetes, stroke, dementia, low birth weight, and many others.
The good news is that it is also highly preventable. And if you do develop gum disease, our dental hygienist will find it during your routine cleaning appointment and plan treatment accordingly.
Seeing you throughout the year also allows you and Dr. Kemahli to develop a trusting relationship. You can feel confident that you will always have a friendly professional to turn to who knows you and is familiar with your history.
If it’s time for your next exam and teeth cleaning, call our Bellevue dental office to schedule an appointment. Been a while since your last dental visit? Don’t worry; we will never judge or lecture you because our only goal is to help you improve your oral health.
