Even if you care for your teeth very well, you still have to face the fact need to visit your dentist every six months. It may seem like a good idea not to go, but if you want to achieve great dental hygiene and take good care of your teeth, regularly visiting your dentist is absolutely essential.
By visiting the dentist once every six months you will be preventing problems rather than curing. I’m sure you’ll agree that prevention is far better than cure and with regular visits to your clinic the dentist will be able to help prevent cavities and help prevent build up of plaque, as well as a host of other teeth and mouth related problems.
Imagine facing a serious issue like gum disease because you were too lazy to book your appointments?
A visit to the dentist won’t take too long and it will include a basic medical and dental history, followed by a thorough examination and conclude with a professional cleaning or as it is professionally known, oral prophylaxis. During your examination the doctor will check your teeth, gums and the tissue on the inside of the mouth. It is also quite common for your dentist to take a few x-rays in order to view the jaw bones and joints. This ensures a thorough checkup and having this every six months will ensure your teeth and the whole mouth stay in good condition for as long as possible.
Regular visits will help prevent problems in the future, but if you notice anything unusual with regards to your teeth, gums or mouth then don’t wait until your next appointment. Instead call your dentist as soon as possible and book an appointment to check out the unusual activity.
Your dentist will be qualified, experienced and equipped with the right knowledge and tools to deal with any problems that arise. BOLA TANGKAS
