Making time in your schedule for regular dental exam may not be the most exciting thing you do, but it’s so integral to your overall health and well being. When you regularly visit your dentist twice a year, you are getting so many benefits and taking a big step towards bettering your teeth and your health. When you stop going in for regular, 6-month checkups, you could end up dealing with major issues that cost you your peace of mind.

Major Advantages of a Regular Dental Exam

When you go see your dentist for your dental exam, there are a few things that happen. Your dentist will look at your teeth, your gums, possibly do X-rays, look for cavities, and, finally, clean your teeth. This helps with multiple things, such as:

  • Plaque, tartar build-up. No matter how well we may brush and floss, bacteria can still spread in our mouths and create a build up of plaque that your dentist can professionally remove after detection. If this goes unnoticed, plaque build up can lead to bigger dental issues, such as gingivitis. Once gingivitis is detected, a more serious treatment plan will be needed. Getting rid of that plaque and bacteria early on will help avoid this, and early detection of gingivitis will help tremendously!
  • Oral cancer detection. When your dentist examines your mouth, they are looking for anything that may be out of the ordinary. When you see your dentist every 6 months, the risk of detecting early signs of oral cancer is high and that can have a major impact on your overall health and wellness.
  • Checking under the surface. Just like your dentist looks at the surface of your teeth for any warning signs, X-rays allow your dentist to take a closer look at the root of your teeth and your jaw. This is a more accurate way of detecting any swelling, cavities, or any other issues unseen to the naked eye.

6-Month Dental Exam Help Your Benefits Stay on Track

With the end of the year quickly approaching, it’s important to remember that everything comes full circle with your dental insurance benefits. Talk with your insurance provider early in the year to discover what your dental benefits entail. Are preventative visits free as they often are? If so, then go ahead and schedule your 6-month checkups early on to avoid forgetting. Or better yet – schedule your next visit before you leave your dental exam appointment!
