Are you one of the many people who “waits until it hurts” to go see a dentist?
Then this post is for you!
You might think that twice-yearly check-ups and cleanings are a waste of time, but we want to help you see why preventive care is so important and why most dental practices (ours included!) build their treatment plans on a foundation of prevention!
If we convince you, please give us a call to schedule a preventive care check-up with Dr. Kaya Aygen, your dentist in Sarasota, FL.
Preventive care helps you avoid pain.
Why wait until it hurts when you can keep it from hurting altogether?
Cleanings help you avoid the problems that can hurt (like cavities and gum disease) and check-ups help us catch and treat any issues that do develop early before they hurt. Strong, healthy teeth are less likely to break and have other problems as well!
Preventive care helps you save money.
It’s always cheaper to prevent a problem than to treat it. Additionally, preventive care appointments are often covered at a higher rate by dental insurance (check with your individual insurance plan for details).
When you consider the costs of preventive check-ups and cleanings every six months compared to the costs of crowns, root canals, extractions, and tooth replacements like bridges, dentures, and dental implants, the difference is pretty extraordinary.
Preventive care helps you save time.
This might seem counter-intuitive, but hear us out! Taking the time for a checkup and cleaning twice per year might feel like it’s cutting into your day, but consider the time lost if you are dealing with dental pain. Pain is a leading cause of employee absenteeism and lost productivity. Think about how you function when you are in pain. Everything takes longer and you’re miserable! Consider also the downtime involved for treatment procedures (like extractions) that might be avoided with preventive care.
