Have you ever been told that you should visit a dentist once every six months? Do you ever struggle to make these appointments because of time constraints or because they’re inconvenient? While we understand that your time is valuable, please know that these appointments are actually vital to the health of your teeth.

An important part of these appointments is a dental cleaning. You see, when you come in for a professional cleaning, we’ll be able to clean your teeth and remove stains that you can’t take care of at home. Furthermore, during these appointments, we may be able to recognize signs of more serious problems that could eventually require expensive treatments. In other words, these visits can ultimately save you money since cleanings are fairly inexpensive.

If you visit our dentist, our team will be able to recognize issues such as oral cancer, which is far easier to treat if it’s caught early. Similarly, we can help you recognize signs of gum disease and tooth decay, and may be able to help you reverse it. This is extremely important because tooth decay lead to heart disease and respiratory problems.

Would you like to learn more about the care about these routine cleanings? Do you still have more questions about how you can keep your teeth healthy and strong? Would you simply like to schedule a time to meet with our dentist, Dr. Eli J. Lawrence? If so, we invite you to reach out to Eli Lawrence, DDS by calling us at 312-236-9895. We look forward to receiving your call soon.
