Reasons why you need regular dental check ups

Why you need regular dental check ups? Prevention is always better than cure. Visiting your dentist at least every 6 months is one of the best ways to ensure your teeth and gums stay healthy.

The dentist finds those hiding places of plaque and tartar

Even the most conscientious brusher and flosser needs to visit the dentist every 6 months. Your mouth has all sorts of areas that are easy to miss and reaching every tooth’s surface every time can be quite difficult. When plaque builds up, it’s hard to remove and if left it can solidify and turn into tartar, that’s when the real issues start to arise.

Plaque and tartar build-up not only affects your teeth, it can also cause gum disease, which can not only cause great discomfort but also cause teeth to fall out.

The dentist can identify preventable issues

We all enjoy the odd treat, whether you like boiled lollies, a cigarette, a coffee to wake you up in the morning and/or maybe a glass of red to unwind at night, you need to consider how these are affecting your pearly whites.

Regular check-ups at the dentist can help identify how much damage your treats are causing. Once you are aware what affect your bad habits are costing you in time and money at the dentist, you can make an informed decision about what to do next.

Regular dentist visits can save you money

What you save in the short term might blow out to be a lot more in the long term. Missing a dental check-up can be a false economy, small issues that could be easily identified and fixed can become a lot bigger and more costly. Visiting the dentist more regularly can actually save you money in the long run.

Do you have private health cover?

Private health cover sometimes covers your regular check-ups. Why not check with your health care fund?

Your dentist looks under the surface

Your dentist has access to the full picture, quite literally. An X-Ray can give a dentist the ability to diagnose a problem that could possibly be missed using just the naked eye.
