12 Reasons To Visit The Dentist This Year

We’re nearing the end of the first month of 2016, and we hope you have had time to recover from the holidays. As much fun as the Christmas season can be, it can also be pretty exhausting, too.

As you focus on the year ahead, we hope you and your family plan to visit Beaumont Family Dentistry in Lexington at least a couple times this year. Oral health is important throughout your life, and we want to keep you smiling.

With that in mind, here are 12 reasons you might want to visit any of our three offices before 2017 begins.

  1. Clean your teeth

As we’ve already said, oral health should be a priority for you and your family. You should be brushing and flossing daily. You also should be visiting the dentist office for professional cleanings and examination twice a year.

One of our hygienists will clean your mouth as well as it can be cleaned. This will keep your teeth and gums healthy and reduce the chances that you may need another (more expensive) service down the road.

  1. Fix your toothache

Unless your are teething, your teeth should not be causing you any pain. If you have a tooth that hurts, you would be wrong to think the pain will just go away on its own. You may need a root canal treatment, or you may need a tooth repaired or replaced.

We will find the cause of your pain and get you back to feeling like yourself.

  1. Replace your missing tooth

If you lose a tooth to decay or an accident, you should try to replace it with a dental crown as soon as possible. If needed, we can place the crown on a dental implant, too.

Losing a tooth can hurt your ability to eat, your smile, and your confidence. We want to restore all of those things.

With CEREC crowns, we can make that change in one visit to our office.

  1. Replace multiple teeth

Some people lose more than one tooth. Some people need to replace a full arch of teeth, and some people are just tired of wearing loose-fitting dentures.

With dental implants, we can create a dental bridge or implant-secured dentures to help you keep eating all the foods you love to eat.

  1. Help your baby

You may be asking what a dentist can do for someone who does not have any teeth yet. The answer is that we can fix a tongue-tie or lip-tie.

Either of these conditions can affect your baby’s ability to nurse correctly. We want your baby to get the nutrition it needs, which is why we offer a laser treatment that works without causing your little one any pain.

  1. Sleep better

If you or your spouse suffers from sleep apnea, you may dream about getting a good night’s sleep, instead of enjoying sweet dreams while you are sleeping. We can help people with obstructive sleep apnea by making a mouthpiece. This helps them (and their loved ones) sleep easier at night.

  1. Stop Your Headaches

Constant headaches could be the result of a TMD, or TMJ disorder, which originates in your jaw. With Trudenta®, we can help relieve the underlying problem and end your headaches for good.

  1. Treat your gum disease

Roughly 80 percent of Americans have some form of gum disease. If it reaches the advanced stages, we can treat it without surgery in any of our Lexington offices.

  1. Whiten your smile

Do you wish your teeth were whiter and brighter? You could try the commercial products you can get at a retail store, or you could have your teeth whitening done right.

We offer professional teeth whitening with KöR products. We can whiten your teeth in our office, or we can provide you with take-home products that will make your teeth look better than they have in years.

  1. Straighten your teeth

Whether you are walking into a classroom or a boardroom, you want your teeth to look their best. If you weren’t blessed with a perfectly aligned smile, we can straighten your teeth with orthodontics.

We are confident that we can improve your smile with traditional braces, Fastbraces®, and Invisalign.

  1. Replace your old fillings

Fillings don’t last forever, and you may be due for a replacement. When you do need one, come to Beaumont Family Dentistry, where we can give you a tooth-colored filling that looks natural inside your mouth.

  1. Free consultations

Schedule a visit to any Beaumont Family Dentistry if you want to know more about how cosmetic dentistry can help you. We offer free consultations to help you decide which treatment is best for you.
