Why do I need Regular Dental Examinations?
Dental examinations are a comprehensive service. During your checkup we will check:
- The health of your teeth
- The health of your gums
- The presence of other mucosal conditions including oral cancers
- Your overall confidence in your smile and appearance
We know immediately whether you are brushing and flossing your teeth the right way or not. A routine dental checkup enables us to provide professional advice on how you can best improve your brushing and flossing at home to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Helping you with this advice around cleaning and flossing your teeth, can save you money in preventative action by avoiding the need for fillings, root canals, extractions and other repair work.
If you do have decay, we can make recommendations about fillings you may need before the decay becomes irreversible and you risk losing the tooth.
Most importantly, regular checkups can maximise the lifespan and health of your teeth. If you only go to the dentist when you become aware you have a problem, then you run the risk of not being able to save your tooth.
Your teeth and gum health are our priority, so we’d love to help you focus on preventative actions, identifying problems as they are just starting to develop so we can help you nip them in the bud.
Keeping your teeth and gums healthy can also help to keep the rest of your body healthy. Research has shown that great dental health can be help prevent cardiovascular disease, stroke and diabetes.
