Why You Should Visit Your Dentist Early in the Year

It’s the start of a new year; have you scheduled a visit with your dentist yet? If not, you may want to do so as soon as possible. Regular dental checkups and cleanings are essential for protecting your smile, and there are several advantages to having one performed early in the year. Here are 5 reasons why you should make a dental appointment in the near future.

1. It Lets You Take Advantage of Renewed Insurance Benefits

Many dental insurance policies reset their coverage at the beginning of the calendar year. As a result, you’ll have more coverage for any treatments you might need to keep your mouth healthy. Furthermore, if you want to maximize your dental insurance benefits, an early dental appointment can help you figure out the best way to do so.

2. It Makes It More Likely That Your Dentist Will Catch Oral Health Issues Early On

Even if your mouth feels fine, cavities and gum disease may have started to develop without you even knowing. These issues can often be treated relatively easily while they’re still small, but leaving them alone for too long can lead to more complex problems that might require root canal therapy, tooth extraction, and other treatments. Scheduling an appointment early in the year makes it more likely that minor issues are taken care of before they can turn into major ones.

3. It Puts You on Track for Better Oral Hygiene for the Rest of the Year

The mouth has a lot of hard-to-reach spaces and areas that are easily overlooked. Even if you’re brushing at least twice a day, you may be missing a few spots. Your dentist can check for areas where bacteria have accumulated so that you can focus on brushing them more thoroughly in the future. Furthermore, your dental checkups are an excellent opportunity to ask about any changes you might want to make to your oral hygiene routine.

4. It Gives You a Chance to Have an Oral Cancer Screening Performed

You may not even realize it, but your dentist performs an oral cancer screening as part of each checkup. Oral cancer is often deadly, but survival rates are significantly higher for patients who receive an early diagnosis. As such, your dentist will let you know right away if you have any symptoms that could point to oral cancer and explain your options for seeking treatment.

5. It Will Help Keep Your Smile Looking Its Best

Taking good care of your smile by visiting the dentist regularly makes it easier to maintain a dazzling grin. You can also ask your dentist about any cosmetic treatments they offer. By taking care of any imperfections on your teeth, you can create a smile that you’ll be proud to show off throughout the year.
