Dental checks ups are an integral part of achieving your overall dental health. We recommend visiting your dentist at least every 6 months for your check ups, so we can ensure your mouth, teeth and gums are healthy.
We are big advocates of preventative dentistry and we like to educate our patients in the benefits of visiting your dentist regularly, to save your natural teeth for as long as possible, and also save you money in the long run. At a check up we will:
- Examine your teeth for any signs of damage/wear (cavities, signs of plaque, bruxism)
- Check your gums for signs of gum disease and other abnormalities
- Oral cancer screening
- Give advice on your diet and lifestyle to help keep your natural teeth for as long as possible
What Is Preventative Dentistry
Preventative dentistry is the art of practicing a healthy oral hygiene routine, and understand how lifestyle choices can affect the health of our teeth. By doing so you will less likely suffer with cavities, build up of plaque, enamel wear, and you will be able to keep your natural teeth for as long as possible. Over time our teeth will come into contact with a number of different bacteria's and our teeth will naturally start to deteriorate and wear from the everyday stresses of life. Unfortunately this is a natural process, but at which rate this happens we are in complete control.
We like to work with our patients so they can protect their natural teeth for as long as possible and that is why the dental check up is an integral part of achieving dental health.
As a rule of thumb, when you start to experience dental pain, this is often the last sign that something has occurred in your mouth and will need a form of treatment. The early warning signs can be picked up by regular visits to the dentist and it will also reduce your dental bill as the further progressed a pain is, the more treatment that may be required.
