Have you remembered your six-month checkup yet with your dentist, Dr. Richard D. Guthrie? If not, we have great news for you! Our team here at Mission Ranch Dental Aesthetics in Ladera Ranch, California, is happy to remind you of the importance of your oral health care exams and why it’s time to come in for a dental checkup!

To begin, dental exams include a wide variety of benefits. Some of these benefits include whiter teeth and catching cavities before they become too large or need costly treatments. If you can catch a cavity and take care of it while it is small, the chances of having other procedures done like a root canal, dental crowns, or even dental implants become very slim. That is why it is extremely important to catch oral health concerns early.

Dental exams also peek into your smile for oral cancer. Cancer has swept the earth in many different forms putting thousands of lives at risk each day. It is also true that oral cancer can be equally dangerous when left untreated. That is why having a dental checkup every six months can be beneficial to catching any cancer early to begin treatment before it becomes too late or severe to manage.

Having a healthy mouth is crucial to your overall health. Having a healthy mouth is not only important but beneficial for long-term health needs. If you feel it’s time for a dental exam or would like your dental cleaning as soon as possible, please call our office today at 949-388-6325 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Richard D. Guthrie. Our friendly and professional team stands ready to take your call and give you a healthy smile you can be proud of!
