You should have a regular check-up
The Australian Dental Association advises that everyone has a regular check-up and clean. This way you can avoid future dental problems and treat any issues early on, reducing the likelihood of more extensive and costly oral health treatments in the future.
Healthy gums and fresh breath
Besides healthy teeth, regular dental health check-ups will ensure that your gums always stay healthy. Rotten gums can lead to periodontal disease, which can have far reaching implications for your overall health. This includes a higher change of developing heart disease and difficulty controlling blood sugar. These are possible side effects, but one fact is irrefutable, treating gum disease can help protect or even save your teeth.
A dental check-up appointment generally involves:
- A dental clean
- A clinical examination
- X-rays (depending on what needs to be investigated)
- Oral hygiene instruction
- Scale and polish
- Treatment summary
Even if you haven’t been to the dentist for years and you’re concerned about what they might find, don’t delay, it’s always better late than never. The dentist will assess your mouth and overall oral health and prescribe a plan for treatment over the mid to long term. They will initially treat anything serious and then, over time, take care of what they can according to your requirements and budget.
