5 Reasons NOT to Skip Your Routine Dental Visits Gainesville, GA
Dentist and Assistant Discussing Treatment with Patient Gainesville, GA

Your dentist wants to see you twice a year. Routine dental visits every six months may seem like a lot, but they are for good reason. This recommended bi-annual schedule is what experts agree will help you achieve optimal oral health all year long. Since we know that good oral health fosters a healthy body and positive well-being, there’s plenty of benefit to be gained from routine dental checkups, which are almost always covered by dental insurance plans!

Are you still trying to come up with excuses to skip your routine dental visit this year? We have some valued reasons to keep that appointment on your calendar every six months. Two dental checkups per year can protect your health, appearance and wallet!

#1 Treat Cavities More Conservatively. Not only will routine dental cleanings help prevent cavities, but your dentist will also be able to catch decay earlier and treat it more conservatively when you are seen every six months. Early cavity repair versus advanced decay treatment could be the difference between a small filling and a dental crown.

#2 Stop Gum Disease. Gum disease is a serious oral health problem, one that can lead to tooth loss and even affect your systemic health if not treated. The good news is that gum disease begins as gingivitis, an early stage that (if detected in time) can be reversed with a professional cleaning or better brushing and flossing habits.

#3 Check in on Unhealthy Oral Habits. Just like any bad habit, the longer it goes on, the more harm that can be done. The same is true with oral habits like chewing ice or grinding your teeth. If you are on top of your routine dental visits, these habits can be addressed and halted before serious damage occurs.

#4 Improve the Appearance of Your Smile. There is more to gain than healthy teeth and gums when you attend regular dental checkups. With professional cleanings, your dentist can remove stains and plaque that your toothbrush cannot. This means you’ll walk away with a brighter, healthier and more attractive smile!

#5 Save Money. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It is far less expensive to have twice-a-year general dentistry visits than it is to need costly, extensive dental work down the road because you failed to give your teeth the care they deserved. Again, preventative dental care is often covered at 100% by your dental insurance plan!

What is stopping you from attending your six-month dental visit? There’s a lot at stake when you choose to neglect professional dental care. At Gainesville Dental Group, we promise to make your routine dental visits as comfortable and stress-free as possible. Call today to schedule your appointment.

Bev M.

Very happy with the staff at Gainesville Dental Group. The doctors are caring and experienced. I never am left in the waiting room. The hygienist always ask thorough questions and report to the doctor before the exam, saving me from having to repeat everything. Highly recommend.

Dennis C.

I came to Gainesville Dental Group with a crown that was in bad shape and painful. Dr. Vetter was very knowledgeable about what needed to be done and went to great lengths to ensure the treatment to resolve the problem was in my best interest. He and assistant Sarah Riley were very professional yet personable. They worked together seamlessly in a manner that put me at ease and were very focused on fixing the tooth. Any physical discomfort was minimal and both Dr. Vetter and Sarah were encouraging and positive. A very good experience.

Sarah R.

I come to Gainesville Dental Group for my routine cleanings and absolutely love it! It’s very clean and I love how up to date they are with digital X-rays and photos of the teeth. I had to have a filling and they were able to point out on the screen where my cavity was on the X-ray. It’s much easier getting the work done when you have an understanding of what the doctor is doing! Dr. Vetter did my filling and the whole procedure was pain free! I can’t say enough good things about this group!

Dr. Gannon and Hannah were great. They talked me thru my procedure and made sure I was comfortable and pain free. The office was friendly and pleasant. My hubby and son have used them and liked them. I've found a new dentist! Thank You GDG.

This is by far the best dental group I have been to in a long time. The staff is wonderful and caring. From the front office to the Dentists are a class act. Very kind and explain step by step. High quality work. Don't plan on going anywhere else. My husband has had the same experience. Do yourself a favor and check them out. Tell them Lorrie sent you

Bruce Y.

Great dental visit! Went in for annual cleaning and x-rays. Donna did an awesome job and pointed out a potential issue which she brought up to the doctor who concurred. It was an excellent visit. Thank you to the "team" @ Gainesville Dental Group.
