To maintain an overall Healthy and Hygienic oral regime, irrespective of how busy your daily life is, take time to make two very important appointments per year with your Dental practice, your bi annual dental visits. It is recommended by The American Dental Association to visit your Dentist every six months.
A few reasons why it is important for a six month check up:
- TOOTH DECAY: Tooth decay and gum problems can be addressed before they become a serious and costly problem. They may appear to be minor, but with early detection they can be easily treated at a low cost.
- CLEAN TEETH: A visit to you dental hygienist is also of great importance. She will not only throughly clean your teeth by removing plaque and tartar, but will also advise you on the correct way of brushing and flossing your teeth. This process is highly recommended as it enhance your smile and makes your mouth feel so amazingly clean. Remember to brush and floss your teeth twice a day.
- DETACT DENTAL DISEASE: As Dental diseases are on the rise in America, it is important for your Dentist to carry out an oral cancer screening during your visit. An early detection of oral cancer could save your life, as it is known to spread rapidly. Early diagnosis is crucial.
- GUM DISEASE: If caught early, many gum problems can be cleared up with special treatments. Many of the foods and drinks we consume daily, as well as smoking, could lead to gum disease, which in turn could badly affect healthy teeth. Allow your dentist to detect any problems by visiting your Dental Practice every six months.
Be wise and visits your Dental Practitioner regularly to keep your Mouth, Teeth and Gums Healthy.
