Prevention is better than cure

This is always true in dentistry. If you detect any discomfort in your mouth, it is better to get it checked out by your dentist right away. It will save you time, money and, most of all, it will save you a lot of pain.

Preventive care is provided as a means of detecting any current problems in your mouth and identifying any problems that may occur. A complete dental check up, a thorough cleaning and x-rays should be a part of your preventive care.

Often, if detected early, small cavities can be taken care of with a filling. If allowed to progress, they may turn into serious lesions requiring root canal treatment or extraction. Early detection and treatment of gum disease will also prevent periodontitis and the possible need for surgical procedures.

Regular dental check-ups, including an examination of the entire mouth, are essential in the early detection of cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions. You may have a very small, but dangerous, oral spot or sore and not be aware of it.

You should schedule your preventive appointments every 6 months. Make them in advance so that you can get the time that is most convenient for you.
