“PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE”
Not having any pain doesn’t necessarily mean that you don’t have any dental problems. Tooth decay and gum disease need to be well advanced before they cause pain. By the time they cause pain, treatment becomes more extensive and expensive.
One of the best way to prevent bigger problems is with regular checkups, this may vary from every 3 months for patient with gum disease to every 12 months for people with very healthy teeth/gums and good oral health.
Routine dental cleanings are an essential component of a preventive dental care plan. Regular dental cleanings not only keep your teeth and gums looking good, feeling great, and functioning well, but keeping up with your oral health can also significantly reduce the amount of money you’ll need to spend on dental treatment later in life.
