How can I save money on dental treatments?
Many dentist and dental professionals will agree that visiting a dentist regularly even when there is no obvious pain or discomfort is more cost effective than waiting until there is an emergency situation.
Not only will an emergency situation cause you pain/discomfort but it could also be occurring at a very untimely event. It could be a holiday or an important work meeting.
A regular check-up will help you stay on top of your oral health and avoid an untimely dental emergency which will likely cost you much more than many regular periodic recall visits.
In addition, an emergency may cause you anxiety, severe pain and also may have severe biological costs on the affected tooth.
What is Preventive Maintenance Care?
Preventive maintainence care, also called recare or recall appointments, are scheduled appointments which include detailed oral health checks, dental cleans, radiographs as necessary, and making sure that your teeth, gums, bite and smile stay in healthy shape.
How often are Preventive maintenance care visits required?
Every patient’s mouth and oral environment is different. We customise a schedule for you which may be 3 to 6 monthly or may even be yearly depending upon so many factors.
