The Benefits of Preventative Care
Regular dental checkups are not only essential for your overall health but also for maintaining optimal oral hygiene. Just like you prioritize routine checkups for your car and general health, it’s important to understand that your teeth require similar attention. Preventative dentistry plays a vital role in keeping your teeth healthy by detecting issues early on and preventing them from escalating into more significant problems. By embracing preventative dentistry, you can safeguard your oral well-being and enjoy a brighter, healthier smile.
Catch Things Before They Become A Problem
Many Expensive Remedies Could be Prevented
Proactive dental care encompasses preventive dentistry, aiming to maintain a healthy smile and prevent dental issues before they occur. By adopting preventive measures, such as proper brushing techniques and regular dental check-ups, you can steer clear of common problems like cavities, gum disease, enamel damage, and more. Embracing preventive dentistry empowers you to take control of your oral health, benefiting both your smile and your financial well-being.
Preventative dentistry means you are taking charge of your oral health. Not only is this good for your smile, but it’s also good for your bank account. Studies have shown that for every dollar spent on preventative dental care, up to $50 can be saved in restorative and emergency treatments.
UIC College of Dentistry reveals that access to preventative oral healthcare is particularly important for two reasons:
- Many oral disease conditions are preventable with early treatment. For example, dental sealants in children can prevent 80% of cavities.
- Preventative dental care practices, which includes early and routine checkups at the dentist, along with good at-home practices, can save families money down the road.

Prevention & Care
Most dental checkups will include a routine cleaning and exam. When this is done year after year, it becomes a preventative measure. You’re going to the dentist because you don’t want to spend more time in the chair later on, having procedures done that are much more time-consuming, painful, and expensive.
Regular dental checkups include cleanings and exams. Twice a year is ideal for most people. Those with gum disease or high decay rates benefit from hygiene appointments every 3-4 months. Consistent preventive care reduces the time, pain, and costs of extensive procedures. Prioritize checkups to try to avoid costly treatments.
