april11We generally like patients to come in for regular dental exams every six months, but we understand how easy it may be to miss a scheduled dental check-up, especially with today’s busy lifestyles. We have outlined just a few reasons why it is vitally important to attend your regular dental visits.

Any Potential Treatment Will be Quicker, Cheaper and Less Invasive

Often the first signs of dental problems will not cause any symptoms and gum disease is a good example, but early treatment can be more effective, less invasive and more cost-effective. Our dentist will carefully examine your teeth and gums for any signs of disease or lesions and can prescribe treatment, hopefully well before you feel any discomfort.

Reduce Your Risk of Dental Emergencies

Regular check-ups are a great way to reduce your risk of a dental emergency, which could occur if an untreated cavity causes a broken tooth, severe infection or an abscess. At the same time, good dental health has a protective effect on your general health.

Don’t Miss Your Oral Cancer Screenings

Screenings for oral cancer form an essential part of your regular dental checkups. Your dentist is specially trained to detect any early symptoms of this disease and an oral cancer screening is quick and completely painless.

Your regular visits to Apple Dental are a great opportunity for you to discuss any dental health queries you may have. We love educating patients and are always willing to chat to you about ways to improve your dental care at home.
