The Importance Of Preventive Care Visits

Making a dentist appointment probably isn't at the top of your list of enjoyable things to do, but keeping up with your six-month visits may actually save you time in the dentist chair.

Preventative care from your dentist, Dr. Gavin Schill of Christiana Creek Dental Care in Elkhart, IN, helps keep your teeth healthy and strong, saving you from needing more extreme dental procedures due to untreated damage or decay.

By staying up-to-date on preventative care, you can spend more time doing the things you love and less time in our office.

Why are preventative care visits so important?

The daily care you practice at home like brushing, flossing, rinsing, and eating well makes a huge difference in your oral health. Good dental hygiene helps minimize the risk of cavities and plaque development. However, a professional cleaning from your dentist is key to achieving your brightest, whitest and cleanest smile. Our tools provide an intensive cleaning and polishing that a toothbrush and paste alone can't provide.

When you visit our Elkhart, IN, office, you will also undergo an exam, which gives your dentist the chance to look at the structure and condition of your teeth. By locating any cracks, chips, cavities, or tartar buildup early on, your dentist can provide the necessary treatments to correct the problem before it becomes worse or affects the surrounding teeth and gums. Early treatment will ultimately save you money, keep you from suffering from unnecessary dental pain, and prevent you from needing to come in for frequent treatments.

Your preventative care visits are also a great time to discuss with your dentist any cosmetic or alignment issues you are interested in addressing with professional whitening, braces or aligners, veneers, or dental implants.

Keep your smile looking its best with preventative care visits with Dr. Schill of Christiana Creek Dental Care in Elkhart, IN. Call us at (574) 262-4378 to schedule an appointment.
