When was the last time you paid your Eastpointe, MI, family dentist, Dr. Peter Jost, a visit? If you're like many people, chances are it was more than six months ago. We hear the reasons why people neglect regular dental visits all the time: lack of money or quality dental insurance, busy schedules, and fear. However, your twice-yearly checkups are so important for your dental health and your overall health as well.

You may brush your teeth twice a day and even floss, and your teeth may feel fine, but regular dental checkups with your Eastpointe, MI, family dentist aren’t about addressing problems and reacting — they are about cavity prevention. No matter how much you brush and floss, there is still a chance that food or other debris can get lodged between your teeth, and there is also a chance that food and beverages can wear down your tooth enamel in between visits, making your teeth vulnerable to decay.

In addition to thorough teeth cleaning and polishing, these regular visits help us detect and prevent the onset of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. During your visit, we’ll check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. We’ll also check old fillings and restorations, as these can wear away over time from constant chewing, grinding, or clenching.

It's important to know that the majority of dental problems do not become visible or painful until they are highly advanced. And, unfortunately, serious oral issues are painful and expensive to treat. A deep cleaning twice a year by our team is the best way to hit all the spots you may have missed with brushing and flossing and prevent any problems that may have gone unseen.

Make sure your teeth get the professional attention they deserve! If you’re overdue for your next cleaning, please give your Eastpointe, MI, family dentist, Dr. Jost, a call at (586) 771-1460 to schedule an appointment.

Are you dealing with issues that require your dentist’s help?

Visiting the dentist is certainly not the highlight of anyone’s day, but it's important if you want to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Along with the routine checkups you should be getting from your Eastpointe, MI, dentist, Dr. Peter Jost, every six months, here are some of the top reasons that mean you should come into the office for care.

It’s been more than six months since your last checkup

Everyone needs to visit the dentist regularly, even kids over one year old. So if it’s been more than six months since you last visited our Eastpointe, MI, family dentist for a cleaning and checkup then it’s time to schedule your next appointment. A simple professional cleaning can help to prevent and pinpoint problems early on to protect and preserve your natural smile. These visits are important for your oral health and should not be missed.

Your tooth hurts

A toothache is certainly not something to ignore. If you are dealing with a toothache it’s time to call us right now, as this is considered a dental emergency. A toothache could be a sign of a cavity, infected tooth, or cracked tooth, so it’s important that you get the proper care you need right away. Our dental team can address any and all emergency dental problems right here at our Eastpointe, MI, practice.

Your gums keep bleeding

If you just started flossing again then your gums may be a little tender or may bleed a bit when you first start, however, they shouldn’t continue to bleed. If you keep noticing that your gums bleed this could be a sign of gum disease. About half of American adults have some degree of gum disease, and it’s the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. It’s important not to ignore red, puffy, or bleeding gums because they are signs of gum disease. If you notice this, it’s time to schedule an appointment with your dentist.

You hate your smile

Feeling self-conscious about your smile? Do you have misshapen, crooked, or yellowing teeth? If so, our dental team can also help. Dr. Jost offers a variety of cosmetic options, from whitening to veneers, to help you achieve your dream smile. We tailor all of your cosmetic options to meet your smile goals. If you want to discuss which cosmetic treatment is right for you, we’d be happy to sit down with you.

If in doubt, call us to find out if the problems you are dealing with require professional dental care. Our dentist Dr. Jost is here to meet all of your needs, whether they are preventive, restorative, or cosmetic in nature.
