Preventive dentistry is integral to not only your oral health, but to your overall physical well-being, too. While many men and women choose to skip their six month checkups because their teeth look and feel fine, missing these exams and cleanings can actually lead to extensive problems later on. At the office of Dr. Paul V. Caputo in Naperville, IL, our team emphasizes the importance of regular dental exams and preventive dentistry in general, as this type of visit helps to ensure a beautiful smile and continued wellness.
The Importance of Biannual Dental Checkups
During your preventive dentistry checkups with Dr. Caputo, we will examine your teeth, gums, and the other soft tissues in your mouth for signs of decay and disease. Often, a patient may feel completely fine but actually be suffering from unseen decay or neglected periodontal disease. In addition, we’ll provide you with a deep cleaning that removes the plaque and tartar that can’t be eliminated with home care.
One of the primary reasons that preventive dentistry is so important actually has more to do with your overall health than that of your smile. Did you know that untreated gum disease, for example, can actually lead to a whole host of seemingly unrelated health problems? Patients with periodontal disease are considerably more likely to suffer from complications like heart disease, diabetes, certain types of cancer, high blood pressure, respiratory illnesses like pneumonia, and more. Your six month checkup with Dr. Caputo serves as the perfect opportunity to check for this type of disease and other problems before they become severe.
