– We can make sure that they are caught early, so that they don’t become bigger problems, like toothaches. So it’s best to get your teeth checked every six months because things can progress fairly quickly in the mouth, so by us checking them, we can make sure that they are caught early, so that they don’t become bigger problems, like toothaches. Once it becomes a problem like a toothache or pain, then it can be costly to intervene at that point.
Another reason why it’s best to check every six months is because there is plaque that builds up underneath the gums that turn into calculus or that really hard plaque, that’s difficult for yourself to remove, and that sort of stuff can cause your gums to be really red and swollen, so we can prevent that from getting any worse for you. And that’s why doing regular checkups and cleaning can help prevent any gum problems as well.
