Around 100 million Americans – or roughly 1/3rd of the population – avoids going to the dentist for myriad reasons. A lot of people don’t go because they don’t see the need, don’t have the money, or simply don’t like the dentist.

Here at Open Door Family Dentistry we’re trying to change that. We’re going to lay out a few facts that will help you learn to love your regular cleanings and ensure we see you every six months to help keep your teeth in tip top shape.

You save money

If you regularly come in for cleanings, you actually save money as opposed to those who don’t. This is because regular cleanings are preventative maintenance, and Dr. Don Schiess is able to spot and fix problems before they become costly to repair.

Betters your overall health

The health of your mouth links directly to your systemic health. If you skimp on regular dental cleanings, you put the rest of your body’s health at risk.

Prevents tooth loss

Everyone knows that regular cleanings are necessary if you want to do all you can to prevent cavities, but they’re also hugely important for preventing tooth loss. Whether it’s due to gum disease or tooth decay, Dr. Don Schiess can help reduce the chances of you losing teeth.

At the end of the day, you can’t afford to not visit the dentist on a regular basis. You should love going when you realize all the good that comes from an appointment!
