Getting your teeth checked by a dentist is an important part of your general health routine. How regularly you need to be checked varies, depending on how healthy your teeth are. But why are dental check-ups so important?
What will my dentist check?
Your Dublin18 Dental Care dentist near Foxrock will carry out a 15 point dental health check and will discuss any issues or concerns that may arise. When they carry out this examination, they are looking for signs of plaque build up, gum disease and any other potential problems. They will then give you advice on how to maintain or improve the health of your teeth. At the end of your appointment you will receive a full detailed treatment plan and your follow on appointment.
What if something needs treatment?
If your dentist finds something that needs further treatment they will discuss your options. It may be worrying to think about the prospect of dental treatment, but this is no reason to avoid your dental checkups. If there is a problem it is best to catch it early, when it will be easily treatable. Allowing issues to continue may entail lengthy treatments and more cost to you. Your dentist will inform you about every stage of your treatment in detail and you will be able to outline your preferences.
The health of your teeth dictates the regularity of your dental checkups. Following the advice, your dentist will ensure that you maintain healthy teeth; therefore reducing the number of visits you need to make with your dentist.
