The Importance Of Preventive Care

You might feel like you don't need to visit a dentist twice a year; surely your daily brushing and flossing are enough to keep up with thePreventive Care health of your teeth, right? While anyone would agree that these are excellent habits to maintain, you should make preventive dental care a priority by regularly visiting your dentist in Westport, MA. Dr. Sathvik Begur Seshadri and Dr. Shikha Chopra offer a few more reasons why staying current with your dental visits is necessary.

Easy access

Many dental emergencies aren't treated in medical emergency rooms; most do not have a dental professional on staff to diagnose and manage these issues. However, if you're not an established patient at a dental office, you may have to wait several days before you can be seen. You can skip all this discomfort and inconvenience by becoming a patient of Westport Dental! Patients in good standing have current records and access to care that others might have to wait for.

Less expense

It may seem like even the most routine trip to the dentist is a blow to your bank account, especially if you don't have dental insurance. However, it's the standard checkups that keep the cost of your dental care as low as possible. People who go years between dental appointments can rack up extremely costly bills when they finally do visit a dentist for a painful or persistent condition. Seeing your Westport dentist twice a year can detect problems early, before they need invasive and extensive treatments to fix.

Good health overall

Studies have shown that the health of your teeth can have an impact on your whole-body health. Having untreated gum disease, for example, means that the bloodstream is constantly exposed to infection. This can put undue strain on the heart. Oral cancer is very curable with early detection, but it could go unnoticed without regular checkups from your dentist, which could give it time to spread to other areas of the body. By making good decisions about your dental health, you'll be vigilant about other aspects of your health as well.
