Preventative Care

Woman in dental chair | Dentist Barrie ONIf you take good care of your oral health with regular brushing and flossing, you might be wondering why visiting the dentist twice a year for check-ups and cleanings is necessary.

At our Barrie, ON dental clinic, we emphasise preventive dentistry so we can discover problems while they are still small and easy to treat. Biannual examinations enable us to do that.

Importance of Regular Dental Cleanings

Consider this scenario: You have skipped several dentist appointments because you hadn’t been experiencing any problems—and they are tough to fit into your busy schedule. Then one day, you wake up with a toothache that goes from bad to unbearable, and you find yourself ringing your dentist with urgency.

The verdict at your emergency dental appointment is that you have an infection deep within the root of your tooth. Only a root canal will eliminate your pain and save your tooth at this point, so you reluctantly agree to the procedure.

If you hadn’t skipped regular dental appointments, you might have been able to avoid this situation altogether. With x-rays and an examination, your dentist would have been able to spot a tiny bit of tooth decay and fill the cavity with a small filling. There is a good chance you wouldn’t have developed a toothache, and you wouldn’t have needed a root canal.
