Importance of regular dental checkups

Even if you think that your teeth and gums are in good condition, it is still extremely important to regularly visit the dentist for a check-up. Increasingly, the links between poor oral health and general health conditions continue to grow. Therefore, regular dental check-ups and having teeth professionally cleaned are vital for keeping you and your teeth and gums healthy.

A dental check-up allows the dentist to carefully inspect the teeth for cavities and broken fillings, the cheeks, tongue and gums for diseases and infections, and the patient’s general oral hygiene. Quite often X-rays of the upper and lower jaws are taken to help the dentist detect any problems that are not apparent by just examination.

As well as a healthy smile, regular dental check-ups aid the early diagnosis of oral problems and more serious diseases such as mouth cancer. Undoubtedly, early detection of any problems will help to prevent and avoid pain and difficulties further down the line.

There are many more things the dentist can discuss with you at your regular check-up to help improve your oral health. Perhaps you would like information on brushing your teeth, toothbrush options, flossing, diet, bad breath, dentures and implants etc. Dentists are always happy to answer any questions you may have and are eager to offer effective solutions to help maintain your dental health.
