Why are regular check-ups important?

We can’t emphasise enough how important it is to regularly visit your dentist. Having your teeth looked at by professionals is so important to your oral health and your overall wellbeing. Check-ups give your dentist the opportunity to identify any problems that may be brewing in their early stages, preventing any further, more complicated treatments down the line. A lack of proper care for your teeth can lead to issues such as gum disease, bad breath, and loss of teeth.

Catching these problems in their early stages allows you to wear your smile with confidence every day. These routine check-ups are vital for maintaining healthy teeth and gums.

How often should I have a dental check-up?

Most dental professionals recommend that you have a check-up at least twice a year, or every six months. However, this may vary depending on your individual circumstances. For example, if you have good oral hygiene habits and do not have any existing dental problems, you may be able to go longer between appointments. On the other hand, if you have gum disease or are at a high risk for cavities, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits. ultimately, the best way to determine how often you should have a dental check-up is to talk to your dentist or dental hygienist. They will be able to assess your individual needs and make a recommendation based on your unique situation.

How often should I have professional dental teeth cleaning?

Professional dental teeth cleaning, also called prophylaxis, is a routine preventive measure that should be done every six months. The purpose of prophylaxis is to remove plaque and tartar that can build up on teeth over time. Plaque is a sticky film of food debris, bacteria, and saliva. If plaque is not removed, it can harden into tartar, which is much more difficult to remove. tartar can lead to gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath. In addition to causing oral health problems, plaque and tartar can also make teeth appear yellow and dull. Professional dental teeth cleaning can help to remove these deposits and leave teeth looking clean and bright. In addition to professional cleaning, it is important to brush and floss regularly at home in order to prevent plaque and tartar buildup.

In fact, many people find that their teeth feel cleaner and softer after a professional cleaning.
