Consistent teeth cleanings and checkups can help you avoid many dental and non-dental related problems, and we recommend that most patients see Dr. Fields every six months for preventive care. Patients struggling with gum disease in Cabot may need teeth cleanings every three to four months to help them maintain their dental health.
When you have an examination with Dr. Fields, he will screen you for problems like gums disease and tooth decay. If these concerns are detected early on, it is much easier and less expensive for you to treat them.
The bacteria that cause gum disease can contribute to other systemic health problems like diabetes, heart disease, dementia, complications during pregnancy, high blood pressure, and more. By protecting your dental health against gum disease, you are also guarding your overall health and well-being.
Dental insurance plans often cover preventive cleanings and checkups at 100 percent, which means that there is little to no out-of-pocket cost to you for these visits. Taking advantage of these benefits and visiting your dentist in Cabot every six months is your best defense against gum disease, tooth decay, and cavities.
