We recommend that patients of ALL ages visit our Williamsport PA dental office twice a year for routine preventive dental care. Bi-annual visits include a dental exam, professional teeth cleaning, and screenings for gum disease, tooth decay and any other oral signs of disease. This alone plays a key role in helping you maintain a healthy smile throughout your life, but there are other important benefits of routine visits with the dentist that go beyond what most patients think of and support both oral health and overall well being.
When you visit with Dr. Kim and our team at Loyalsock Dental regularly, we develop a deeper understanding of your oral health, your unique risk factors for disease and how your dental health is impacted by lifestyle habits and your medical history. This important information helps us to provide more comprehensive care and personalized oral hygiene advice that goes a step beyond a cleaning, helping you maintain the health of your smile between visits and avoid more complex problems.
Many patients do not realize the role that the condition of their oral health plays in the maintenance of overall good health. Not only do certain types of diseases have early oral signs that we can spot during regular visits, poor oral health has been proven to raise your risk for developing disease, especially cardiovascular and systemic conditions. As a partner in your health care, we take the opportunity during preventive care visits to discuss your concerns, any changes in your health and other factors that can enable us to offer you the best care.
Dr. Kim and our team believe that the best dental care is based on open communication, patient education and trust. We want our patients to know that when we recommend a dental treatment we have the interest and integrity of their long-term dental health in mind.
