We get it: Families today are busy, and getting everyone scheduled for regular dental bookings seems like just one more item on to-do lists that are already packed. But when you consider the advantages to preventive dental appointments, you might realize that those twice-yearly visits to our Katoomba, NSW dental surgery can actually save you time in the long run.

Keeping Your Teeth Healthy Can Equal Cost and Time Savings

If you are good about taking care of your teeth at home with regular brushing and flossing, you might wonder why you need to see the dentist—especially if you are not experiencing any issues. Taking care of your oral health at home is good—but it’s not really good enough.

When you don’t have your teeth cleaned at the recommended six-month intervals, you run the risk of plaque building up on your teeth and hardening into tartar. Plaque is the sticky substance that builds up on your teeth, particularly after you indulge in starchy or sugary foods. Brushing and flossing will remove some of the plaque, but your home dental care tools simply cannot reach all the areas where plaque builds up.

This is where professional dental cleans come into play. The hygienist will use special dental instruments to remove the tartar. This will not only help your smile feel cleaner, but it will also reduce your risk of developing dental decay and gum disease.

Having check-ups twice a year gives your dentist the chance to inspect your teeth for potential problems, discovering potential issues in their earliest stages—before you start experiencing symptoms. What this usually means is that treatment is less invasive and quicker—and it almost always costs less.

Protect Your Oral Health—and Your Wallet—With Preventive Care Visits

If you’ve been skipping dental appointments in the past, we welcome your call so we can get you on track for the future. We warmly welcome new patients to our Katoomba, NSW dental surgery.
