3 Reasons Why Regular Dental Visits Are Important
It’s not uncommon for people to skip their regular dental visit and even go years without visiting their local dental clinic due to fear, budget or simply because they believe their teeth are in fine health. However, a twice-yearly dental check-up can be key to saving you a lot of pain, money and time later down the track.
At Care Dental Cashmere, we believe that our welcoming, supportive and friendly environment will convince clients to return according to our recommendations. For those that aren’t yet clients or are seeking more information on our practice, these are our top three reasons why regular
dental visits are important.
Maintain that big, bright, white smile
While brushing, flossing and rinsing at home is a great way to care for your teeth and gums, regularly visiting your local dental clinic can take it a step further. Removing plaque build up and getting into those hard to reach places can help you attain or maintain that healthy, pearly white smile.
Our professional and qualified dentists can also help with cavity prevention and treatment along with other cosmetic dentistry to help you achieve your desired smile. As a prominent facial feature, your smile and therefore your teeth, are an important part of first impressions and can heavily impact your self-confidence.
A bright, healthy smile can do wonders for your self-esteem, with even subtle changes likely to spike the way you feel about yourself.
Prevent oral diseases and tooth loss
Do you have bad breath? Do your gums bleed when you brush your teeth? These could be signs of something as simple as brushing too vigorously and plaque build up to a more severe case of gingivitis or periodontitis.
Bleeding gums could also be a warning sign for gum disease which, if left untreated, can result in tooth loss. The most important thing to protect yourself from is oral
Regarded as an extremely serious disease, oral cancer can manifest itself in many different ways, displaying different symptoms from one person to the next. While you may not recognise the signs, a quick, non-invasive test can be performed by your dentist at your regular check up appointment.
To prevent this and other oral diseases, our team at Care Dental Cashmere recommend a 6- monthly check up to ensure the health of your teeth and gums.
Please note that this may be more frequent depending on your oral health and that some diseases may not show signs, further emphasising the need for regular dental visits.
Improve general health
Did you know that the condition of your teeth and gums can have a strong influence on your overall general health? Poor dental health can often lead to circulatory, digestive, reproductive and respiratory issues.
Over the years, our teeth will naturally weaken and decay, but it’s this constant upkeep and regular dental visits that will prevent early onset and keep your chompers lasting longer. There could be issues developing underneath the surface that you don’t feel, but a dentist can recognise the signs or use their equipment to detect.
As something you can’t spot at home, this is something that could lead to bigger health issues and is one of the most important reasons to regularly visit your dentist.
At Care Dental Cashmere, we have a strong focus on client satisfaction. This includes everything from ensuring comfortability, affordability and customer ease.
