Why Prevention Is Best

toothbrushclearcupWhen it come to squeezing preventive care into your schedule, showing up for a dental checkup can seem nearly impossible. We understand that making time for dental care and the million other things you need to accomplish in a single day can become quite challenging. However, we also want to make sure you are aware of the significance of prevention. Rather than waiting for a problem to show up, helping your child avoid oral health issues altogether is always preferable. Allow us to explain the reasons why.

It’s The Most Comfortable

If your child never experiences inflamed gums, tooth decay, or a tooth infection, he or she will be the happier for it. Problems with teeth and gums may begin without even displaying obvious symptoms (a time when we can help identify issues during preventive care visits). However, if you allow the problem to flourish and progress, significant discomfort is likely to follow until we offer restorative care.

It Saves You Money

Brushing, flossing, and trips to see us for preventive care will not require much of an investment. This becomes particularly apparent when you compare it with the cost of paying for restorative treatments, like dental fillings, dental crowns, or root canal therapy. By keeping your little one’s oral health in check on a consistent basis, you won’t need to worry about extra costs.

It Promotes The Life Of Your Child’s Teeth

The good news is that we can repair your child’s tooth when something goes wrong. However, the more we repair the tooth, the more vulnerable it becomes to eventually breaking or requiring an extraction. The longer we can keep your child’s teeth healthy, strong, and intact with preventive care, the longer those teeth will remain in good health.
