The Importance of Regular Check-Ups

Why are regular dental check-ups so important?

Many of our clients ask us why they need to have dental check-ups every 6 months. 

Some people avoid going to the dentist regularly because of cost, anxiety, or simply because they don’t have the time. Sound familiar? 

 

The truth is that regular dental check-ups, in addition to improving your dental health and your health in general, can save you money and time - prevention is better, and far cheaper, than cure.

When it comes to teeth, it is surprising how neglectful some people can be, choosing only to visit the dentist when things go wrong. 

We would like to stress the importance of adopting a preventative strategy; it will help protect your health and save you pain, money and time.

At AMK Dental Clinic, our expertise and the cutting edge dental technology that is at our disposal allow us to identify our patients’ dental health problems even at a very early stage, when they don’t even know problems exist.

What dental problems can regular check-ups prevent?

At AMK Dental Clinic, the latest in dental diagnostic technology facilitates early detection of a range of potential infections and other diseases including oral cancer. 

What about the cost? I don’t think I can afford to go to the dentist twice a year!

Again, prevention is cheaper than treatment!

Most private health funds make a significant contribution to the cost of dental check-ups.

Additionally, because we believe in prevention and early detection of dental disease, there are no out-of-pocket costs for members of private health funds younger than 16 years of age for their six-monthly check-ups; Medicare’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule for children between 2 to 17 years old is also available for the eligible. 

Do you suffer from dental anxiety?

Finally, if you dread going to the dentist due to anxiety, then we are the dental clinic for you. If you require treatment, we have the expertise and the state of the art facilities that allow us to employ a range of measures to make your experience a more comfortable and even a pleasant one!

So, don’t let cost or anxiety stop you from regular visits to the dentist. Give the friendly team at AMK Dental Clinic a call to schedule your next dental check-up.
