Caring for your oral health must begin with commitment and attention long before any dental issues present themselves. Keeping good dental habits and eating the foods that promote good oral health can go a long way towards achieving the pearly whites of your dreams.
But achieving optimal oral health isn’t possible working alone. You need a trusted dentist to be your dental partner. At Alex Bratic Dental Care, we take great pride in our preventive dentistry options. We promote and put a strong emphasis on the importance of preventive measures such as dental check-ups and exams to ensure strong and healthy teeth. Read on and learn more about how you can benefit from regular visits to your dentist.
Why Is It Important To Have Regular Dental Check-Ups And Exams?
A good brushing should be at least two minutes and must include not only your teeth but also your tongue and other soft tissues in the mouth. Flossing should also be done at least once a day, preferably before sleep, to remove the food debris stuck between teeth.
However, despite following good oral hygiene habits, you still cannot be sure of a risk-free mouth. Even with good brushing habits, not all areas in the mouth are reached. The molars are often neglected; hence they become good hideouts for bacteria to thrive.
It is because of this that you have to check in with your dentist for a regular check up. Your dentist will check your oral health status and determine preventive dentistry treatments such as scale and clean to improve your oral health.
Other than that, dental check-ups and exams also include tests like oral cancer screening. If detected early, there is a greater chance for a cure.
How Often Do You Need To See My Dentist?
A regular dental check-up and exam is scheduled once every six months or twice annually. During a regular visit your dentist may conduct X-rays and recommend a scale and clean for your teeth. Your dentist will also give oral hygiene instructions during your appointment.
Benefits Of Dental Check-Ups And Exams
As noted, preventive dentistry has a long list of benefits to your oral health. The following are some of the noteworthy benefits of dental check-ups and exams.
Possible dental issues are detected early on before they can damage your pearly whites. Hence your natural teeth are saved and are risk-free.
This benefit is often misunderstood. For some people, going for a regular dental check-up seems like a waste of money. Why go to the dentist for a simple check? In fact, investing in a regular dental check-up and exams saves you money. Because your oral health is closely monitored, dental issues are identified and treated early; consequently you avoid needing dental treatment that could be quite expensive.
With your teeth free from any dental issue and your oral health at its best, your self-esteem surges. You won’t have to worry about an unhealthy tint clouding your teeth or foul breath. You can smile and speak confidently.
