Regular Dental Checkups

It’s a nice weekend , you plan for a road-trip to The Taj Mahal with your family.  You are happily cruising on the uncrowded Yamuna expressway. Suddenly you see the car starts jerking and you see smoke emerging from under the hood.  The engine has clearly got trouble. You wish you should have changed the oil as per the recommendation, But now it’s too late for a simple oil change, the damage is done and now you will have to spend much more time and money to get the car functioning again.

Most of all, your trip is spoiled and the kids are sad.

Prevention is cheaper than Cure

It’s just about the same thing when it comes to dental problems, By having, at least a yearly dental visit, and a  Comprehensive Dental checkup, you can eliminate most dental problems that cause the intense pain, to both body and wallet, that makes the dentist such a scary place.

Cavities NEVER start off big. No one  goes to bed with perfectly healthy teeth and wake up needing a root canal. It just doesn’t happen. The bacteria that live inside of everyone’s mouth need time to breakdown the enamel of the teeth. Enamel is very resilient and can withstand a lot of abuse before giving in. The enamel cannot withstand the abuse for extended periods of time however. At some point it will give way and cavities will form.

 But even this is not the end of things. Cavities are simple small holes in the enamel where bacteria can hide. There is still no pain in the tooth. Pain comes into play when the bacteria are continued to go untreated and the little hole in the enamel begins to turn into a big hole that proceeds through the inner layers of the tooth. At this point pain will start to occur. And by simple reasoning we can conclude that since the hole is bigger the treatment must also be bigger.

So to save you the agony of pain and unnecessary financial burden, get a comprehensive checkup at least once a year.
