How Seeing Us Regularly Can Help You Save Money in the Long Run
Posted on 5/24/2021 by Dr. David Welton
You can save a good deal of money on dental repairs if you see us regularly for a professional cleaning and exam. We can catch minor dental problems before they become major catastrophes.
Why You Should See Us Every Six Months
There's lots of good reasons to see us every six months. By making regular appointments for professional cleanings and exams, you don't have to worry about dental expenses as much. For instance, if we see you have a problem with tooth decay, we can treat the problem before it becomes a cavity or fill the hole before it increases in size. If you wait for treatment, things can get a whole lot worse. The decay can deepen over time. If this happens, you will probably develop an abscess or need a root canal. Small dental problems don't usually resolve themselves. They normally worsen the longer you let them go.
Keeping Your Gums Healthy
One of the best ways to prevent gingivitis is to contact our office for a deep cleaning if you experience the initial stage of a gum infection. We can schedule a scaling and root planing (SRP) for a gingival infection. By taking this approach, we can reverse the early stage of gum disease. You don't want to wait until gingivitis turns into periodontitis, or advanced gum disease. If you do, you can end up having to have gum or bone grafts, and you will experience problems with swelling, recession, and shifting teeth.
Maintaining Your Home Dental Routine
If you see us every six months, you will also make a more concerted effort at home toward keeping your teeth brushed and your gums healthy. By seeing us regularly, it will also motivate you to brush your teeth at least twice a day for 2 minutes at a time and to floss daily. Therefore, you can consider us as your dental support network.
