When was the last time you visited the dentist?

Many people don’t visit their GP unless something’s wrong—either they are feeling unusually unwell or they need their prescription re-filled.

Dentistry is different.

Visiting your dentist is not something you want to do only when you’ve got a problem.

Visiting your local Coastal Dental Care (CDC) dentist is something you want to do every six months.

By visiting your local Coastal Dental Care (CDC) dentist every six months you can avoid the need for extensive and expensive dental treatments.

By visiting your local CDC dentist every six months, you’ll receive a scale and clean instead of possible root canal therapy or dental crown work.

Avoid for the need for extensive and expensive dental treatments

If you get a cold or the flu it will, after a while, go away. The same cannot be said for dental pain. If you have a sore tooth it could be infected—the longer you leave this the worse it becomes. In fact the worst case scenario is the tooth’s root could be infected and it could fall out due to decay.

By visiting your CDC dentist every six months we can work with you to help prevent serious oral health issues.

While root canal therapy is better than extraction (this is because your natural tooth, even one emptied of infected nerve tissue and pulp is better than no tooth), a six-monthly check-up is even better than root canal therapy.

To put it another way, there’s the $100 for a check-up and clean or the hundreds of dollars for root canal therapy plus the need for a dental crown to protect the treated tooth. Dental crowns are placed on treated teeth to keep them strong and sturdy. Generally speaking, dental crowns start anywhere from $900.

So, when was the last time you visited the dentist?

If it’s been a while since your last visit, call one of our conveniently located dental practices today. In dentistry prevention is better than a cure because we want our patients to maintain all their natural teeth.

Your natural teeth are better for your oral health.  When you chew you’re providing the necessary stimulation to your jawbone to maintain its health. When you lose a tooth the bone that holds the tooth in place starts to atrophy and the jawbone essentially starts to shrink away. Maintaining your teeth is the best option for your general oral health.
