When it comes to maintaining good oral health, we believe prevention is the key. To keep your teeth healthy, it’s important to visit your dentist regularly. Regular check-ups help us catch and treat issues like gum disease and tooth decay before they become big problems
What is included in a dental examination?
During a dental check-up the dentist will perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth and oral cavity. You provide us with a full medical health history, discuss with the dentist any problems you may have with your teeth and the dentist will examine your mouth looking for:
- Any decays on your teeth
- Signs of gum disease
- Any problems with your existing restorations
- Any problems with your temporomandibular joints
- Tooth wear
- Signs of bruxism (teeth grinding)
- Mouth cancer
- X-rays taken if needed
- Listen to your concerns and answer all your questions
- If any further treatment is needed, you will be provided with a treatment plan especially made for your needs.
Why have regular check-ups?
Regular check-ups mean regular opportunity to detect any problem that can occur in your mouth, from tooth decay to mouth cancer. By detecting a problem at an early stage the treatment required will be less invasive, cost you less money and less time. Regular check-ups helps you:
- Maintain good oral health
- Healthy gums
- Prevent mouth cancer
- Retain a bright healthy smile
- Prevent bad breath (halitosis)
How often should I visit the dentist for a check-up?
We recommend you visit your dentist at least once per year, preferably once every six months. The dentist will assess your oral health and advise you depending on your needs, how often you should return for check-ups and cleanings. In the meantime if you experience any dental issues or discomfort between scheduled visits, don’t hesitate to contact us for an earlier appointment.
