Three Reasons To Schedule a Dental Visit

Tooth-Colored Fillings 2 at George A. Hoop, DDS, PA | Fort Myers & Naples, FL Dentist

It’s been a little longer than it should have been since your last dental checkup. That’s OK. We aren’t judging.

But we do want to encourage you to come back. At both offices of George A. Hoop, DDS, in Naples and Fort Myers, FL, we offer comprehensive dental care for adult patients.

That’s why we want to share three great reasons for you to visit our general dental office. Call 239-734-7737 today to plan your visit!

#1: Preventing Problems

For anything health related, prevention should always be plan A. That’s especially true for your oral health because it can affect more than just your mouth.

To give you just one example, people with gum disease also are more likely to experience heart disease. And the bacteria that cause periodontal problems also affect your risk of having a stroke.

Preventive dental care is a team effort. On a daily basis, you should be brushing (for two minutes, twice daily) and flossing (also every day). A couple times each year, you should be visiting us for a dental checkup. This includes a cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup and reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease.

We also give you a thorough dental exam in an effort to catch problems as soon as possible. This way your treatment is more effective and less invasive.

#2: Mouth Pain

Your teeth and your gums should not hurt. If they are, that means something is wrong.

If you have a toothache, you could have a cavity or you may have an infected tooth. In either situation, we have ways that we can help. Whether you need a filling or a root canal, we can remove the problem and restore the function of your teeth and the appearance of your smile.

If your gums hurt, that’s often a sign of advanced gum disease. In many cases, pain is one of the last symptoms of this condition. Many times, you will notice other symptoms such as bleeding or swelling of the gums before you notice any pain. The sooner you seek help, the less likely it is to cause bigger problems — including tooth loss!

If you have a sore jaw, this could indicate a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problem. We can help in those situations, too. Teeth grinding is a common cause of TMJ disorders, and we can make a special mouthguard to protect your teeth and reduce your pain.

#3: Too Embarrassed to Smile

Lots of people feel the need to hide their smiles, and that makes us sad.

You may be missing a few teeth. You might have broken or cracked teeth. You could have yellow, stained teeth, or maybe you just wish your teeth were straighter.

The good news is you can feel comfortable smiling again! Cosmetic services like veneers, professional whitening, and orthodontic care can give you the smile of your dreams.

We Hope to See You Soon

At either of Dr. Hoop’s offices, you can take advantage of our preventive, restorative, and cosmetic care. Whatever your oral health situation, we would be happy to help you maintain or improve your smile. You just need to call 239-734-7737 or contact us online if you would like to make an appointment.
