Time for your Dental Check up?

How many times have you heard it's important to visit the dentist twice a year, but ignored this advice thinking it didn't pertain to you?  Well, to ensure the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth, you really do need to make those bi-annual visits. These visits include not only a thorough cleaning beyond what you can achieve at home, but also a full examination of your mouth, which can help you prevent future problems.  Learn about why the six month dental examination and cleaning is a good idea for anybody who values their smile.

Did your parents make sure you went to the dentist twice a year?  Have you, like many adults, been skipping these regular visits?  It is well-known that we are all supposed to visit the dentist twice a year, but many adults forgo regular dental check-ups. Read on to learn why a bi-annual visit to your dentist for a full examination and cleaning is important. 

 In addition to a thorough tooth and gum cleaning, your dental check-up also includes a very important full mouth examination.  First, your dentist or hygienist will use a pick and mirror to inspect each of your teeth for signs of enamel loss, decay, or fillings that may need to be replaced.  This examination can help your dentist detect potential problems before they require costly treatments such as dental crowns and bridges. 

Your dentist will also examine your gums during this appointment.  Most people don't know that gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, and it can also lead to loss of jaw bone structure.  Most forms of gum disease are easy to treat if caught early, but may do extreme damage if left untreated.  In fact, recent studies have even linked gum disease with heart disease, stroke, and premature birth.

Many people are unaware that during a dental examination, their dentist also screens for oral cancer, which can be deadly.  Cancers may appear as a red or white spot in the mouth, but can be difficult to detect with the naked eye.  Many dentists now use laser technology to perform thorough oral cancer screenings.

Visiting the dentist twice yearly for a thorough examination and preventive dental care is the best way to keep your mouth and teeth healthy and strong for a lifetime.  Now that you know how important bi-annual dental visits are, contact a qualified dentist near you to schedule your appointment.
