Reasons to Visit Your Dentist on a Regular Basis

Posted on August 18th, 2016 by

Whether it is being unable to afford the visit or the dental phobia that is so common, most Americans do not visit their dentist on a regular basis. What they don’t seem to realize is that visiting your South Loop dentist doesn’t just give you the dazzling smile that you bestow upon the world. There are many other reasons that going to the dentist at least twice a year is extremely important. With that being said, read on below for a few of the reasons that you should make visiting the dentist a regular habit, not just an as needed occurrence.

To Prevent Tooth Decay and Gum Disease

Tooth decay is the number one cause of your teeth going bad and even falling out. If you go to the dentist routinely, any cavities that might be forming can be found and quickly taken care of. If you only go once the pain of a tooth is unbearable, you are not going to be able to save the tooth, and that will cost you even more money than going to the dentist the way you should could ever cost you. Gum disease is also a killer when it comes to your teeth.

Protection from Serious Illnesses

Many people don’t realize that tooth decay can be linked to your overall health. The bacteria and plaque buildup eventually turns into rotten teeth, which leads to infection. This infection can work itself into your bloodstream and cause your overall health to suffer badly. It is rumored that this infection can even lead to death for some. If you are feeling sick because of your bad teeth, it’s important to get to a dentist as soon as possible. This, of course, can be prevented by regular trips to your dentist for cleaning as well.

Save Money in the Long Run

In the end, you are going to save more money by going to the dentist the way you should. Checkups are certainly much cheaper than paying for a root canal or a tooth to be pulled.
All in all, not only is your health saved when you go to a reputable dentist on a normal basis for checkups, your wallet is saved as well. For more information on what your dentist can do for you, contact the professionals at the Art of Modern Dentistry today.

I was a little hesitant to come here after reading some reviews on Yelp but decided to give it a try after being reassured by Millie (who is really sweet and pleasant) over the phone, and I'm really happy I did. The office is beautiful, modern, and clean, something that really makes a difference for me going to the dentist. They were very prompt, I didn't have
to wait long to see the dentist.

I've been a Art of Modern Dentistry patient for almost a decade at both the South Loop and Lincoln Park locations. Currently I go to the LP office and have to say these are the bets dental pros in Chicago. From the hygienists, to the doctors, to the office staff everyone is professional, nice, and wonderful at their job.

I was blown away by the warm energy that radiated from the staff. They made sure that I understood everything and knew what the cost would be before we moved forward. Each person took the time to sit with me and explain the process. These people clearly love their job, their co-workers, and have a passion for assisting their clients with their dental health.
