Why visiting a dentist every 6 months is essential.

That is their job of course! Dentists are there to help you – they aren’t there to cause you pain or give you ‘unnecessary fillings’ – they are there to help you protect your teeth and provide you with advice and recommendations to allow to maintain the best oral hygiene possible.

Advice is invaluable when it comes to looking after your mouth. Rather than searching online for generic advice your dentist is able to tailor advice to your mouth and your needs! You’re not going to be able to get that if you don’t visit!

Having a regular check-up enables the dentist to catch the problem before it escalates. For example, a hole in the tooth caused by tooth decay will need a filling but without that filling, that hole could result in the need for a root canal if it doesn’t get treated. Therefore, it is actually more cost effective to visit a dentist and get the treatment done regularly (if you need it) rather than missing years and having to have more expensive invasive treatment.

Dentists will act in your best interest and the only way they can do that is if they see you as their patient on a regular basis. For example, if you see your dentist after two years and need 4 fillings – they may not be able to fit you in all in one day which could result in the creation of multiple appointments which of course is less convenient for you.

Invest your time and money in a dentist that you love. If you don’t like your dentist – you do not need to stick with them! You have no obligation to stay with the same dentist! Find a dentist that will make a difference to your life.
