After your teeth are cleaned, the examination process begins. The purpose of this is to identify any developments early so they can be addressed in the least invasive manner possible. Dr. Price takes a thorough approach to the examination process, checking your teeth, gums, jaw and any existing dental work to ensure everything is functioning as it should.

If any issues are discovered, you’ll be informed during the consultation process. Then, along with Dr. Price, you can determine what route to take to restore your oral health.

How Often Should You Visit?

Generally, you should visit your dentist in Porter for preventive care every six months. In doing so, if there are any new developments with your oral health, they can be spotted before they get worse.

Dr. Price may suggest you visit more frequently if you have a history of dental cavities, though. In these cases, he may ask you to stop by every three-to-four months so any new bacteria can be recognized and the overall condition of your mouth, teeth and gums can be evaluated.

A Boost to Your Wallet

The perks of visiting for preventive care still reach further. By remaining consistent in your efforts, you can place yourself in an upper echelon of patients who maximize their dental insurance benefits annually, which translates into a greater return on the monthly investment you make to maintain coverage.

Dr. Price is your #1 ally in the fight against bacteria. So to get on the road to maintaining excellent dental wellness for years to come, reach out to our office today to schedule a visit!
