Dental Checkups – How Important Are They?

 

Dental CheckupWe know that for most people, going to the dentist’s office is not high on their list of favorite things to do.  A visit to the dentist takes up valuable time in our busy, modern schedules!

So we are not surprised that we hear this question time and time again from our patients: “Is going to the dentist twice a year really worth it?”  And the answer is always the same:  “Absolutely!”

Why?  We’ll give you two good reasons right here:

Reason #1:  Save yourself from pain!

The fact of the matter is that dental problems do not simply heal themselves on their own.  In our practice, we are trained to detect problems and fix them before they get out of hand, saving you pain (and money) down the road.  Using the dentist’s office only as an emergency room when you have an agonizing toothache will only cause you more pain in the long run.

Reason #2:  Save yourself money!

Regular checkups and cleanings are also relatively inexpensive when compared to the cost of fixing much bigger dental problems (for example, a tooth that requires a root canal or extraction).  Let us treat your oral health problems before they become unnecessarily complicated and costly.

Twice a year for better oral health!

Most oral health professionals recommend that you have your gums and teeth cleaned and checked once every six months. If they appear healthy, then this interval may be extended.

Don’t wait until you have tooth pain that is out of control!  If we see you regularly for check ups, we can avoid many of these bigger problems together!  Call us to schedule your next checkup.
