Your mouth is a lot like a car. You maintain it, use it every day and take it in for checkups. But like a car, how would you know there is a problem in your mouth unless you took it to a professional? That’s why it’s important to schedule a regular dental exam & cleaning at least twice a year.
Even people who take great care of their teeth need to have a regular dental exam & cleaning. For one, some dental problems aren’t visible to the naked eye. Secondly, you may only realize you have a problem when there is pain, which could be a sign that the problem is in its advanced stages. Emergency dental work is way more costly than routine maintenance. The only way to truly address these problems in a manageable stage is by visiting the dentist.
Here are some more reasons why you should schedule regular dental exams and cleanings:
- North Heacock dentists can catch things you can’t: Dental problems like gum disease and oral cancer can only be identified by your dentist. Can you look in the mirror and tell if your gums have receded to a point requiring connection? Probably not, but your dentist can in a routine examination. There is also specialized equipment at the dental office that can help detect abnormalities.
- Our dentists help prevent future serious problems: If you have a small tooth cavity, you may put off a visit to the dentist because it seems like an insignificant problem. But that small cavity can develop into a painful root canal or even tooth loss in the future. This also applies to gum disease. The earlier you detect dental problems, the better.
- You save money in the long-term: If you discover that you need a costly dental implant, it might hurt to hear that better maintenance and professional care could have prevented it. Making a small investment in dental exams and minor procedures can prevent more costly ones down the road. Finally, if you have dental benefits, it’s a waste of money if you don’t use them.
- Drs. Reagan & Smith help you ensure a beautiful, bright smile: In addition to preventative maintenance, your dentist can help you improve your smile with things you can’t quite do at home. From braces to professional teeth whitening, you can get the best smile of your life at the dentist.
Just like your car, your mouth is a huge investment. Don’t let it go to waste.
