Has it been two, five, maybe ten years? We’re hoping it’s not the latter, but if it’s been a long time since you’ve tended to your smile, it might be time to visit the newest Valley Forge area dental practice — Penn Dental Family Practice on the Main Line, conveniently located in Berwyn!
At Penn Dental Family Practice on the Main Line, we want to put the health of your smile on your priority list. Here are a few reasons you should see a dentist soon.
3 Reasons to See a Valley Forge Dentist
- Preventative Care
Seeing a dentist involves more than just dental cleanings. If you want a healthy happy smile, then preventative care is a must. While brushing and flossing are very important to prevent cavities and gum disease, you still need a professional eye to see if any problems might be developing in your smile. Your dentist can screen for early indicators of cavities, gingivitis and oral cancer, and can help you avoid other major dental work.
Did you know that pregnancy can create or worsen existing dental problems? Pregnancy can make women more prone to gingivitis and cavities due to increased hormones. Pregnancy gingivitis and cavities can affect more than you — they can affect your baby too! Pregnant women with periodontal disease may be at a greater risk for early delivery or low birth weight babies.
- Tooth Pain
If you’re experiencing tooth pain that is sharp, achy, throbbing or simply unbearable, it’s time to make an appointment with Penn Dental Family Practice at our new Valley Forge dental practice location. Toothaches can be indicators of something more serious like a broken tooth, an abscess, a loose filling or an infection of the tooth pulp. If you have tooth pain that continues to rear its ugly head, it’s imperative you see a dentist.
It’s time to make your smile a priority and we know just the place you can go. Please contact Penn Dental Family Practice for an appointment and come visit us at our new Berwyn location this summer!
