In last week’s blog, we let you know that you should follow advice from your dentist about how often you should be seen for your dental appointments. This week, our blog is about exactly why it is important for you to see your dentist for your routine check-up appointments.
Check-ups are essential in maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. By making sure you visit for a check-up as and when advised, your dentist will be able to identify any potential problems at a much earlier stage and advise you accordingly on treatment and your oral health care regime.
During a routine check-up appointment, your dentist will examine your mouth and ask you about your general health, lifestyle, and diet. Doing this allows them to make an assessment of your oral health, and recommend any necessary action if required.
Your dentist will then let you know when you need to visit them again for a follow-up appointment.
If you are due for a routine check-up appointment, do not hesitate to contact us. You can do this directly through our website or by calling us at the practice.
