Regular dental checkups are a vital part of maintaining your oral health.
Without them, problems are left unchecked until they eventually become a much bigger issue than they really needed to be.
Here at Rocky Ridge Dental, we provide regular routine dental checkups in Calgary to help patients keep on top of their oral health and hygiene, saving unnecessary complications and often saving money in the long run.
It’s easy to fall out of the habit of getting regular checkups. You’re busy and sometimes life gets in the way.
But making the effort to keep on top of your teeth is important.
With regular dental checkups in Calgary, your dentist can help to preempt any potential issues with your teeth before they get too big.
Advantages of regular dental checkups in Calgary
The prevention is usually cheaper than the cure
Remember that old saying?
Well, it’s particularly true when it comes to dentistry.
You can usually combine your regular checkup with a quick professional clean, thus preventing the accumulation of plaque or tartar that builds up over time and is the leading cause of more complicated dental issues.
One of the main reasons to keep up to date with your dental checkups, is that it’s just plain easy.
Here at Rocky Ridge Dental, we see hundreds of patients every week for checkups and you’re usually in and out in under an hour.
So there’s really no reason not to get regular dental checkups in Calgary.
A chance to ask your questions
A checkup is also a great time to ask your dentist about any particular questions or concerns you have with regards to your oral health.
A huge part of our job at Rocky Ridge Dental is helping to educate our patients on how they can look after their teeth and to recommend treatments and procedures that lead to a healthier mouth and a better smile.
Everyone is different, and treatment and procedure recommendations vary from individual to individual, so use this time to talk to your dentist about what’s right for you.
Help detect wider health problems
Regular checkups can also help to spot and diagnose bigger and wider reaching health problems such as oral cancers and gum disease.
With regular checkups, the chances of catching these kinds of problems in the early stages increases significantly.
How often should you get a dental checkup?
At Rocky Ridge Dental, we recommend our patients make regular checkup appointments at least every 6 months.
Those with great existing oral health can sometimes push that to every 9 months, but we strongly recommend not leaving it much longer than that between checkups.
