Most children and adults should see their dentist for a regular cleaning and check up every six months. People at a greater risk for oral diseases should have dental check ups more than twice a year. Tobacco and alcohol use, diabetes, pregnancy, periodontal and gum disease, poor oral hygiene and certain medical conditions are some of the many factors that we consider when deciding how often you need your dental cleaning and check up.
Going to your regular check ups will help to keep your gums and teeth healthy as well as detect any early problems such as gum disease, oral cancer and cavities. The best way to maintain good oral health is to visit your dentist on a regular basis.
A check-up allows your dentist to see if you have any dental problems and helps you keep your mouth healthy. Leaving problems untreated could make them more difficult to treat in the future, so it’s best to deal with problems early, or, if possible, prevent them altogether.After your check-up, your dentist will recommend a date for your next visit. The time to your next check-up could be as short as three months or as long as two years (or up to one year if you’re under 18). We have highly skilled dental surgeons under one roof to provide world class treatement.
At each check-up, your dentist should :-
1. Examine your teeth, gums and mouth.
2. Ask about your general health and any problems you’ve had with your teeth, mouth or gums since your last visit.
3. Ask about, and give you advice on, your diet, smoking and alcohol use, and teeth-cleaning habits.
4. Discuss with you a date for your next visit.
