5 BENEFITS OF VISITING YOUR DENTIST EVERY 6 MONTHS

Many people are afraid of the dentist.  The first three things they think of when they hear the word ‘dentist’ are; pain, shot, drill.  All three of these things relate to fear, they wait until they ‘have’ to go to the dentist and don’t go every six months on regular visits because of fear.

You need to understand how dentistry works – enough to keep yourself from spending big bucks when you do finally have a problem and schedule an appointment.

The key is to visit us on a regular basis, which will catch problems early on, such as tooth decay, gum disease, cavities or even oral cancer.

Dealing with these problems early will not only save your health but in the long run, will save you money. And the reason is simple: The earlier your problem is diagnosed, the easier it is to treat.

EARLY DETECTION OF UNDERLYING PROBLEMS

Catching cavities and tooth decay at an early stage can save your teeth from infections. During your 6 month visit, we sometimes may also take dental x-rays to check for any unnoticeable oral problem such as impacted teeth, improperly positioned wisdom teeth, unnoticed pathological findings like cysts and tumours. Similarly, initial stages of gum disease like gingivitis can be identified and treated early. The benefits of this early detection are:

  1. SAVES YOU PAIN:

This early detection of problems will help save you from pain in the future like small decays can be filled by composite fillings and won’t lead to painful teeth needing a root canal.

   2. SAVES YOU TIME:

The procedures like regular cleaning of gums and restoring decayed teeth helps you avoid treatments like a root canal and deep cleaning of gums which would take more appointments and time to complete.

   3. SAVES YOUR TEETH:

If there is a lot of delay in getting dental treatment in time, there are chances you might lose a tooth. This might be because the tooth becomes extremely mobile due to gum disease or the decay spreads to an extent that the tooth cannot be restored back. The best available replacements of teeth are never as good as your own teeth, so we at SK SMILE DENTAL CLINIC advice to save teeth whenever it is possible.

   4. SAVES YOU MONEY:

Dealing with these dental problems early will not only save your health but in the long run, will save you a lot of money. And the reason is simple: The earlier your problem is diagnosed, the easier it is to treat.

   5. PROTECTS YOUR OVERALL HEALTH:

Around 120 systemic diseases can be visible in your mouth like Diabetes, coronary heart disease, Osteoporosis, Eating Disorder, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, etc. Early detection of problems can help prevent the minor issues from becoming big. Dental health is a key element in total body health, and as such, is not something that should be overlooked or neglected.
