Have you ever heard that you should visit your dentist once every six months? While these cleanings may not seem like the highest priority—especially if you have school, work, or family—they are actually extremely important. And would you be surprised to learn that visiting your dentist could actually be a way to save money?

During these cleanings, our dentist will examine your smile for signs of trouble. If we find any issues, we’ll gladly offer you the personalized advice you need. For example, would you be surprised to learn that many people have gum disease and don’t realize it? While this may not seem like a serious problem, did you know that gum disease can become worse with time? In fact, if you have untreated gum disease, you may have frequent bad breath, experience sensitive teeth, and even lose teeth. Our dentist will also remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, which can help you avoid tooth decay.

Did know that if you don’t visit the dentist, your overall physical health may suffer as well? The health of your mouth can actually affect your overall health. For instance, if you have gum disease, bacteria could enter your bloodstream more easily. If this happens, you could suffer from issues such as heart disease, lung disease, and high blood pressure. Our team can also help you diagnose oral cancer—which is far easier to treat if it is caught in its early stages.

Finally, if our team is able to prevent serious issues, you won’t need to pay as much for your treatments. You see, a cleaning is far less expensive than a treatment like root canal therapy.
