Benefits Of Regular Dental Checkups

Dental OfficeSo, how often should you get a dental checkup? By seeing your dentist every six months, you increase the benefits of dental care. By having professional cleanings and dental examinations you take advantage of the following benefits:

  • Saving Money Longterm
  • Maintaining A White Smile
  • Protecting Your Gums
  • Early Cancer Detection
  • Cavity Prevention
  • Preventing Bad Breath
  • Removing Harmful Plaque
  • Better Heart Health

Dr. Kitagawa thoroughly examines your mouth for signs of oral cancer and other harmful diseases. Spotting TMJ, inflamed gums, and infections early can also mean preventative treatment and relief from any pain or discomfort. Additionally, clean teeth and fresh breath help you to always put your best face forward.

Prevention Saves You Money

The more often we see your teeth, the more quickly we can spot problems like tooth decay and gum disease and stop them in their tracks. Periodic dental examinations save you time and money in the long run by preventing more extensive corrective measures like root canals and extractions. So, spending less time in the dental chair is actually one of the benefits of getting a dental checkup too.
