When it comes to preventive care, patients often think to themselves, “Well, there’s nothing wrong yet, so I’m sure I can skip my visit just this one time.” Unfortunately, making the decision to postpone dental checkups may result in serious consequences that are otherwise easy to avoid. You see, preventive services are associated with the idea of keeping your mouth healthy rather than waiting for a problem to occur. For a clearer understanding of what makes checkups so exceptional for your smile, we invite you to learn more about the benefits.
They’re Only Twice A Month
Unlike other aspects of your preventive care (like daily brushing and flossing) your dental checkup is something that only needs to happen twice a year. This means seeing us just one time every six months, so we may monitor your oral health. We also schedule your dental cleanings during the same visit, so you can accomplish two preventive services at once.
We Can Detect What You Cannot
Sometimes a problem will not present any symptoms. Sometimes you simply won’t notice that anything has gone wrong in your mouth. The good news is that we have the expertise and technology to detect concerns long before you recognize them. By seeing us for twice annual dental checkups, you can rest assured that you won’t accidentally miss a problem that requires treatment.
Early Detection Equals Greater Treatment Success
The sooner we detect a concern, such as tooth decay or even oral cancer, the greater the potential success rate of your treatment. Consistent dental checkups offer significant protect to your health.
