Why We Focus on Prevention
There are a few important things in life that, if taken care of beforehand, can prevent problems in the future. For example, getting the oil changed in your car, studying for a test a few days in advance, throwing out the bad bananas before your vacation, and agreeing to drive the speed limit.
Similar to these situations, visiting our dental office for biannual checkups is a preventive measure that can help mitigate the risk of future dental problems. For example, did you know that gum disease is linked to heart disease and strokes? Not to mention, during regular dental checkups, we can catch issues such as cavities and oral cancer before they become problematic.
If issues are caught early on, treatments are typically more affordable and less invasive. It’s important to remember that dental issues usually don’t go away on their own and seeking assistance in our Auburn dental office will put your oral health back on track.
