Benefits of Regular Dental Checkups
- Seeing a dentist regularly will catch dental problems and diseases before they occur, ensuring you don’t go through the physical and financial pain of dealing with them later when they get worse
- Expert advice and products to keep your smile looking beautiful, bright and healthy. Your smile is your connection with the world, and maintaining one you can be proud of greatly boosts self-confidence.
- Professional cleaning on a regular basis is important because it washes and maintains areas that can’t be cleaned with home dental care. Dentists use specific handheld tools like scalers and polishers to add extra shine to your teeth.
- Poor dental hygiene causes pain and increases stress, and it causes harmful build up of plaque, bacteria and more severe disease. Regular visits keep your mouth pain free, so you can focus on enjoying life without worrying about eating or smiling.
What To Expect In A Dental Checkup
- During a regular visit, your dentist and dental hygienist will check a range of areas including teeth, gums and mouth walls for signs of plaque, cavities and other problems.
- Dentists will then provide a basic scale and clean to maintain the health of deeper areas around the teeth which regular brushing may not access.
- A bitewing X-ray is sometimes used, which shows the upper and lower teeth in a single view to check for alignment and teeth decay.
- Fluoride treatments may be given to protect against decay, by making them more resistant to acid attack from plaque bacteria and sugars.
- Dentists will provide you with helpful advice on future cleaning and dental health, as well as products and the need for any future visits.
