Dental check-ups should be carried out every 6 months to one year. This is your dentist’s chance to look at your teeth and make sure everything is healthy. You will also be able to tell them about any problems you have been experiencing and get them checked out.
Here are some reasons why it’s important to keep up with your dental checks:
- Your teeth will be healthier. Your dentist will give them a thorough clean and will ensure you don’t need any fillings.
- Your oral health will be better. A good dentist can spot signs of wider health problems, like oral cancer or halitosis.
- You can discuss any problems you are having. If you notice tooth sensitivity or bleeding gums, tell your dentist.
- If you’re thinking about cosmetic dentistry, you can discuss it at your appointment. Talk to your dentist if you are considering tooth whitening, Invisalign, implants or anything else.
