Dental visits play an important role in maintaining good oral and general heath. They are important for both preventative and treatment reasons. You should visit the dental office for a checkup and a dental cleaning in San Jose twice a year. If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, you should schedule an appointment now.
Your dental visits need to be done biannually for valid reasons. Getting a regular checkup and a regular dental cleaning in San Jose, helps you to you to keep your mouth healthy, helps to prevent dental issues, helps to prevent unnecessary dental procedures, and therefore saves you time and money. The best type of treatment is prevention. If you take the time to do what’s necessary to prevent problems from ever developing in the first place, you’ll save yourself a lot of time, money and will avoid invasive dental procedures. Seeing your dentist regularly (biannually), enables him to detect problems early, which allows for early treatment. The earlier a problem is addressed, the better. When dental problems are treated promptly, the likelihood that the condition will worsen decreases dramatically. If the problem is not treated quickly enough, it greatly increases the odds that you will need more costly invasive treatments to correct the worsened condition. For example, if your dentist finds that you have cavities early enough, he can drill and fill (repair) them before they get worse. Untreated cavities lead to gum disease and other worse oral health issues. If your dentist determines that you have early gum disease (gingivitis), you can get a couple of regular professional cleanings right away, which should resolve it. However, if it’s not dealt with quickly enough, it could develop into advanced gum disease which eventually would result in tooth loss.
