Why preventative dental care is so important

Investing your time and money in preventative dental care is guaranteed to save you time and money further down the track. It’s well known that regular visits to your dentist prevent toothache and wallet ache. With regular preventative care, potential problems can be detected early and treated right away. This ensures you receive the best value for money, proving prevention is better than a cure. Preventative dental keeps your teeth healthier, and longer. As such, this limits the extent of dental treatment that you may need in the future.


Instead of avoiding the trip to the dentist, embrace it and save money in the long run by achieving and maintaining optimal oral health. Regular examinations will ensure your mouth stays in top shape all year round. During your check-up, your dentist will thoroughly examine the health of your teeth, gums, and soft tissues. Establishing a starting point for your oral health allows your dentist to carefully monitor and treat according to changes in your smile down the track. Dental X-rays will also likely take part during your exam, allowing your dentist to assess your teeth for cavities. X-rays pick up cavities that may be developing in areas not visible to the naked eye. X-rays also allow your dentist to inspect areas around existing fillings. Following your exam, your dentist will likely discuss their findings with you and chat through any recommended treatment options before they proceed.
