Benefits of regular visits
A dental examination is not only important for your teeth, but also for the prevention and early detection of serious health issues, like gum disease and oral cancer. When you suffer from dental phobia or anxiety, you will naturally avoid visiting the dentist until you have a problem. Unfortunately, many dental problems only become symptomatic when they are very advanced. By waiting until a tooth breaks or starts to hurt, you will find the procedure required to fix your tooth is very involved and costly. Most dental problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease, can be stopped or managed if the issue is detected and treated in early stages. Periodic dental visits are also critical when it comes to the early detection of oral cancer. If detected in its initial stages, in many cases oral cancer is completely curable.
