Rockford Dentist – Costs of Skipping a Regular Check-Up

dentist in Rockford ILA busy lifestyle can certainly make time pass quickly. Before you realize it, your smile will be due for another professional exam and cleaning. We recommend scheduling your next appointment prior to leaving our dental office in Rockford to prevent missing a dental cleaning. When routine dental exams and cleanings are skipped, it may become costly in several ways.

Preventive Measures
Regular dental check-ups can prevent oral diseases (such as decay and periodontal disease) from developing. Dental exams allow our professional team to discover early 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 detected and treated at our Rockford, IL dental office to prevent worsening dental problems.

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

During early stages of gum disease, a non-surgical deep cleaning is able to treat mild to moderate conditions. However, severe cases of gum disease may require gum surgery. Cavities also benefit from early detection. Cavities can infect and damage the pulp of your tooth. Deep pulp infections require root canal therapy. If a cavity is left untreated for a longer period of time, the affected tooth may become severely damaged may require an extraction. Regular visits with our dentist in Rockford, will prevent costly treatment such as extractions and root canals from being required in the future.

Visit us more than twice a year to maintain a smile stronger and brighter smile. Contact the Rockford dentist to schedule a routine dental exam today. We look forward to your next visit!
