When you think about dental exams and cleanings or doctor visits of any kind, the old saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” quickly comes to mind. At Gover and Gover Dentistry, we have our own saying: “Two dental exams a year keeps the cavities away!” Obviously it’s not quite as catchy, but hopefully it gets our point across well enough. In addition to your daily brushing and flossing, regular dental exams and teeth cleanings are vitally important in keeping your teeth healthy, strong, and looking their best.
Dental Exams and Tooth Cleaning at Gover and Gover Dentistry
At Gover and Gover, dental exams include thorough inspection by our expert dentists, Dr. Susan Gover and Dr. David Gover. Tooth X-rays (using our digital X-ray system) and consultations on any issues that are spotted help you make the most informed choice on how to proceed with necessary treatment.
If too much time is allowed to pass between dental exams and tooth cleanings, plaque and tooth decay can slowly build up until you’re faced with a much bigger—and potentially more painful—oral health issue that is costlier to fix. But when you visit Gover and Gover Dentists in Raleigh for regular dental exams and cleanings, here are just a few benefits you’ll receive.
Benefits of Regular Dental Exams and Teeth Cleanings
- Better Oral Health – Proper upkeep of your teeth is crucial for avoiding tooth decay, gum disease, halitosis, as well as other unwanted oral conditions
- More Savings – It’s not a perfect analogy, but you may remember an old car care commercial that quoted, “You can pay me now or pay me later” with the inference being it would cost much more later. Dental care is no different. For instance, a low-cost dental sealant procedure can protect against tooth decay for up to 10 years. Or you could ignore your tooth care and let an undetected cavity go too long and and face a much costlier and more painful root canal later. Regular dental checkups and maintenance with regular cleanings and teeth X-Rays are the answer to these potential problems and their associated costs.
- A Better Smile – When your teeth get regular cleanings, it improves their aesthetic appeal too … think “whiter, brighter smile.” That happy, healthy smile in turn is a confidence and mood booster that others perceive positively.
