When is the last time you paid us a visit at East Coast Family Dental? if you can’t remember, you’re not alone. Around 100 million Americans don’t visit their dentists each year. There are all sorts of reasons why people don’t want to visit their dentist, but there are many reasons why they should.

Visiting us on a regular basis will give us a chance to clean your teeth, remove plaque build-up, check for cavities and spot other problems early on, when treatment will be easier, and will cost less. Besides regular exams and cleanings, some other reasons you should make an appointment with us are if your teeth are sensitive to heat or cold; if you feel pain in your teeth or mouth; if you suffer from a dry mouth; if you have fillings, dentures or implants; and if you are pregnant.

Even if you don’t have any of those symptoms, it’s still important to have us give you a checkup and a cleaning. There are some medical conditions that first appear in your mouth. Oral health is important to your health in general, and at East Coast Family Dental in Jersey City, New Jersey, our first concern is for your mouth and teeth.

When you visit us, we’ll clean your teeth and check for cavities and gum disease, we’ll take x-rays of your teeth, and discuss things like your diet, and brushing and flossing.

How often should you come and see us? Dr. Maria Sese will talk with you about that when you come in for your visit. Some people need to see the dentist twice a year, others may need to come in more often. Every person has different needs. Together, we will come up with a plan to keep your teeth healthy.

If it’s been a while since you have been in for a visit, don’t be a stranger! Give us a call today at 201-332-4699. We’d love to see you!
