Why Consistent Checkups Are Better Than Sporadic Ones

You may not really understand why we get a bit fired up about you setting up dental checkups consistently, every six months, without missing a beat. Instead, it seems more logical to you that you come in every now and then when you can, so you can at least be sure that you’re checking in and that everything is okay. We understand your thinking but we strongly suggest you learn more about our perspective (so that you can keep your oral health protected!).

We Can More Easily Notice Changes

Once we get to know your smile and what to expect from your oral health, it’s easier to detect changes that are unique to your smile. For instance, perhaps you are someone who deals with canker sores. If you show up with a sore, we’ll know that this is something that’s not out of the ordinary for you. However, if we see you ever year and a half to two years for dental checkups we won’t have a foundation of knowledge that includes common characteristics of your oral tissues. When you see us regularly, we can keep a close watch on your smile and recognize abnormalities right away.

We Can Help You Keep Your Smile Healthy

About those “changes” we might find during your dental checkups: They could include tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, or anything else. Remember that what makes consistent, every-six-month visits so important is that during these visits, we will notice changes very early, when they’re easy, convenient, and inexpensive to treat. When you see us sporadically, we may find problems well into their development, which means required treatments may be more intensive, more expensive, and less convenient.
