Taking care of your teeth is as important as taking care of the rest of your body. While bi-annual health check-ups have become very common, it is also pertinent to ensure that you go for dental check-ups at least twice a year.
A dental health checkup is divided largely into cleaning and examining. Here are some of the details you need to know about them and the benefits of going for a regular dental checkup:
- Cleaning to remove plaque – Even if we brush twice a day and floss regularly, there are some parts of your mouth your brush or floss can’t reach. The plaque in those areas needs to removed through dental cleaning. Moreover, if left as it is, plaque can turn into tartar which is known to cause gum disease.
- Examining to check for any warning signs – A dental checkup is more than just cleaning, it allows the dentist to check for any potential problems, for example, a developing cavity or any unusual symptoms. If spotted, they can quickly do an X-ray or even fix a small cavity. By going to the dentist regularly, you’ll be able to prevent many oral health problems.
- Educating on preventive measures – Once you’re done with the cleaning and checkup, the dentist can inform you of any special measures you need to take to further improve or maintain your dental health.
- Reduces fear to go to the dentist – Going to the dentist is not everyone’s favorite, and we know that! But we recommend that you talk to your dentist before hand and share your fears. They will do their best to keep you as informed as possible and as prepared. Moreover, if you go for dental health check ups regularly and maintain good oral health, the experience during a check up is far from painful.
We firmly believe that prevention is better than cure, and there is no better way to prevent dental and oral health issues than going for your check ups regularly. Once you become a regular, you will see the difference in your oral health which will motivate you to sustain this habit and even encourage others.
