When was the last time you visited your dentist for a check-up?
If you’re like many people, you probably only pay a visit to your dentist when you are in pain and need immediate treatment. The problem with waiting until there is an issue, is that the problem is likely now quite advanced, something that could have been avoided with regular check-ups.
Here are some of the main reasons why you should visit your dentist regularly for a general assessment.
Keep Your Teeth
No one wants to lose teeth, and visiting your dentist on a regular basis will help ensure this doesn’t happen. Potential problems can be nipped in the bud before they are exacerbated. It’s only when we let things go that they become major dental issues.
Some of us take better care of our cars than we do our teeth. We take them in for servicing, have them detailed, get them checked over by a mechanic before a long road trip. In other words, we don’t always wait for our car to break down before we pay it any attention.
Why not do the same for our teeth?
Your dentist can have an X-Ray taken of your entire mouth. This X-Ray can reveal potential problems that are unseen by the naked eye. These X-Rays are an invaluable tool for your dentist to be able to rectify an issue before it becomes a major one. Here at Advanced Dental Care Clinic, we use digital x-rays to ensure you get 80% less exposure to radiation than ordinary film.
Having your teeth professionally cleaned by your dentist will remove the build up of plaque both on the surface of the teeth, under the gums and the gaps between them. Your smile will be brighter and your teeth will feel smooth and polished. What’s more, this type of thorough cleaning from your dentist will improve the health of your teeth and gums.
Avoid Potential Pain
Toothache has got to be one of the worst pains there is. It can range from an annoying dull ache to pure agony. Once it’s bad it can be impossible to eat or drink, or even sleep at nights. You lay in bed fantasising about a visit to the dentist rather than dreading one. Regular check-ups with your dentist go a long way toward avoiding toothaches in the future.
Prevent Gum Disease and Tooth Decay
Regular visits to your dentist will help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Prevention of issues is always more desirable and painless than a cure. Inflamed and diseased gums can be just as uncomfortable and painful as a toothache. Both gum disease and tooth decay can be avoided with regular check-ups.
