Costs of Skipping a Regular Check-Up With Your McKinney Dentist

Busy lifestyles can make the time pass quickly. Before you know it, your smile will be due for another dental exam and cleaning. Missing a professional cleaning and exam could be costly in a number of ways. We recommend scheduling your next appointment prior to leaving our dental office in McKinney TX, to prevent missing an important cleaning.

Preventive Measures
Regular dental check-ups prevent oral diseases (such as decay and periodontal disease) from developing. An exam allows our team to find pre-mature signs of mineralized plaque (tartar), which can cause severe damage to your teeth and gums. Additional dental problems such as impacted wisdom teeth, loose fillings, and dry mouth teeth can also be detected and treated to prevent future dental problems.

Time Matters
The earlier dental problems are discovered the less costly and invasive the treatment will be. During your regular check up, our doctor will screen for early signs of gum disease, decay and oral cancer.

In the early stages of gum disease, a non-surgical deep cleaning is able to treat mild to moderate conditions. However, extreme cases of gum disease can require gum surgery. Cavities can also benefit from early detection. Cavities cause damage to your smile and infect the pulp of your tooth. Root canal therapy is required to treat infected pulp. If a cavity is left untreated for a longer period of time, the affected tooth may become damaged may require an extraction. Routine check ups with the McKinney dentist prevent costly treatment such as extractions and root canals.

Please visit our office than twice a year to keep your smile stronger and brighter. Contact the McKinney dentist to schedule your next routine dental exam today. We look forward to seeing you soon!
