Why Should You Have Regular Dental Assessments?
Are you aware of the importance of regular dental visits. As a dentist I often get asked why do I need to come to the dentist every 6 months or every year ..
well as part of the regular oral assessment that we under take includes
a full digital charting of the teeth
a full examination of the gums and gum disease
an assessment of the mouth for oral cancer or any other diseases
any photos and X-rays which are required
assessment of the bite and the way in which the teeth fit together
assessment of the individual teeth fillings and dentures
and then appropriate treatment is discussed and recommended …one of the main issues with dental diseases is that decay and gum disease are often silent and do not cause any issues or concerns or pain until often some damage has occurred so for this reason its really important to have a complete dental health assessment like the one above.
at Lifestyle Dental we under take this for all the patients who are members of the practice at every 6 month assessment and also a visit with the hygienist as well
