Regular dental exams help protect your oral health and general well-being. A dental exam gives your dentist a chance to provide tips on caring for your teeth and to detect any problems early, when they’re most treatable. Moreover, it has been shown that infections in the mouth can cause problems in other parts of the body.
Checking your teeth for tooth decay is just one part of a thorough dental examination. During your check up appointment, your dentist will likely evaluate the health of your gums and examine your mouth for any indications of oral cancer, diabetes or vitamin deficiencies. Your dentist will then clean your teeth and stress the importance of you maintaining good oral hygiene at home between visits, furthermore knowing that in this area there is no fluoride in the water.
We will pay special attention to plaque and tartar. This is because plaque and tartar can build up in a very short time if good oral hygiene is not practiced between visits. Food, beverages and tobacco can stain teeth as well. If not removed, soft plaque can harden on the teeth and irritate the gum tissue. If not treated, plaque can lead to gum disease.
Once your examination and cleaning have been performed, we’ll tell you about the health of your teeth and gums and then make any additional recommendations.
It’s important that you see your dentist every six months and that they give you routine examination and cleaning. Remember, by seeing your dentist on a regular basis and following daily good oral hygiene practices at home (proper brushing, flossing, use of interproximal brushes), you are more likely to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Healthy teeth not only enable you to look and feel good, they also make it possible to eat and speak properly.
