Start the New Year Off Right With Dental Check-ups for the Entire Family

Could your family use a dental check-up this January to maintain their best oral health? We offer comprehensive and compassio

Regular dental check-ups play an essential role in maintaining your dental and whole-body health. They also provide an important opportunity to check in with a professional about any orthodontic or cosmetic treatments you may be interested in exploring further. 

To support your family’s health and well-being as we move into 2020, why not schedule dental checkups for the whole group? Robert F. Wilcox, DMD, PC and our experienced care team provide comprehensive and compassionate dental services for adult and child patients from our Butte, Montana, office.

Catching up on check-ups

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you follow your dentist's advice about how frequently to come in for a check-up. For most patients, Dr. Wilcox typically schedules two check-ups/cleaning appointments each year. If you have conditions like periodontal disease or use orthodontia, more frequent office visits might be indicated.

If you haven't had a dental check-up recently, the best time to start is now. Your dental care will cost less and include fewer complications in the long run if you have regular check-ups and cleaning visits with an experienced dentist.

Finding problems earlier

For problems with your teeth and gums, early identification can be key to smooth treatment. If we can identify and monitor issues like cavities or gum disease, we can prevent more serious oral health problems like tooth or jawbone loss. Because your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body, serious oral health problems increase your risk of conditions like heart disease. To keep your mouth and body healthy, prompt treatment can work wonders.

Easy-access appointments

We try to make your dental check-up and cleaning appointments as quick and painless as possible. We can cover a lot of ground in a single office visit, including:

We can also recommend helpful products, orthodontia, or cosmetic treatments during your check-up appointment. We may need to take X-rays of your teeth to help identify problems.

Dr. Wilcox provides care to new and existing patients, offering restorative, cosmetic, and pediatric dental services. To schedule check-ups for you and your family, and start the New Year off right, call our office today, or use the online booking tool to make your appointment.
