Costs of Skipping a Regular Check-Up With Your Columbia Dentist

Posted on 9/12/2014 by Crafton Dental
Your busy lifestyle can make the time pass quickly. Before you realize it, your smile will be due for another dental exam and professional cleaning. We recommend scheduling your next appointment prior to leaving our dental office in Columbia to prevent missing a cleaning. Skipping a professional cleaning and exam could be costly in various ways.

Preventive Measures
Regular dental check-ups can prevent oral diseases (such as decay and periodontal disease) from developing. An exam allows our dental team to find pre-mature signs of mineralized plaque (tartar), which can cause damage to your teeth and gums. Other dental problems such as loose filling, dry mouth, and impacted wisdom teeth can also be discovered and treated to prevent worsening dental problems.

Time Matters
The sooner dental problems are detected, the less invasive and costly your treatment will be. During your exam, our doctor will screen your smile for early signs of gum disease, decay and oral cancer.

In early stages of gum disease, a non-surgical deep cleaning is able to treat mild to moderate conditions. However, extreme cases of gum disease can require gum surgery. Cavities also benefit from early detection. Cavities can infect and damage the pulp of the tooth. A pulp infection will require root canal therapy. When a cavity is left untreated for a longer period of time, the affected tooth may become severely damaged may require an extraction. Regular exams with our dentist in Columbia, MD can prevent costly treatment such as extractions and root canals from being needed.

Visit us more than twice a year to maintain a strong and bright smile. We look forward your visit. Contact the Columbia dentist to schedule a routine dental exam today!
