Why is it important to get your teeth cleaned every 6 months?
It is the same concept as why is it important to get your oil changed every so often. Your car drives fine and then the engine just blows up one day.Your dentist will suggest you stay up on your oral health to detect problems early.
Fixing advanced dental problems usually ends up costing about double what the up keep would have.
My hendersonville patients tell me they would much rather have their teeth cleaned and a few small dental resin fillings than crowns and root canals. I tell my patients that most small cavities will some day grow up and be root canal. Get them while they are small! Written by your hendersonville dentist Dr. Scott harbin
