We often opt for dental treatments when it hurts you somewhere. We do the treatment, pain subsides and we forget to visit again. This is a common practice where we aim to treat the pain but not the root cause.
It is very much possible to prevent 80 to 90% of dental problems to progress to advanced stage by just doing Regular Follow ups with your dentist.
Today we will discuss the importance why you should visit your dentist as advised by him/her.
1) Pre-treatment/ Preventive Dental Follow ups:
This is regular check up of your overall dental health/condition of the gums and your oral hygiene status.
This checkup should ideally be done twice a a year or at-least once a year for every individual including kids. These follow-ups will detect the progression of any cavities/gum problems in early stage. The treatment in early stages are less complex, less expensive and less time consuming.
So it saves your level of discomfort, money and time.
On a contrary without followups your cavities, gum problems and other serious oral problems grows silently and when they reach to advanced levels. They start showing the symptoms.
Majority of the oral cancers are well known for their silent killing nature. It is difficult to check your own mouth for early sings for cancers.
2) After treatment / Post Treatment Dental Followups:
Every individual have a different response to the same treatment. It is utmost important to check responses in many cases depending on the nature of the treatment. Some treatments needs followup on next day..some needs in 3 days some in weeks and so on…These followup helps the doctor to see the outcome of the treatment and it becomes easier to find out if any modifications or corrections are required or not.
Some treatments like root canal treatment and implants require follwups for several years to keep watch on the outcome of the treatments. Your dentist will best advice the time duration and frequency of the followups. Never ignore them.
We at “Dhapekars Dental Care ” maintain the follow up records and watch closely the progress of the treatment given. It helps us to give our patients the best possible treatment options and take corrective measures before its too late.

Dental implants are basically replacing your teeth roots. In dental implants anchors are used which are actually a cylindrical screw like object. This is put in your lower and upper jaw bones through surgery and they work like stable bases for artificially replaced teeth. (Learn how to Avoid Yellowing of Teeth)
Dental implants can be of many types and the types of implants vary on the method of surgery.
Some prominent types of dental implants are:
Endosteal: In this method screws, blades or cylinders are surgically inserted in the jawbone. Every implant can hold one or more artificial teeth.
Subperiosteal: Through this process, artificial teeth are on the top of a jawbone by a metal framework. People who cannot wear artificial dentures and have a short bone height prefer this method.
Dental implants come with many advantages, some of the advantages may include:
Improved Appearance: Surgically implanted teeth feels like your own teeth, at the same time they also look better.
Improved Speech: With badly fitted dentures (learn more about regular care for dentures) you have chances to slur or mumble your words but with dental implants, it is easier to speak.
Improved Comforts: Dental implants are very comfortable; you will not find any difference with your own teeth.
Comfortable Eating: As it feels like your own teeth, you find no difficulty whilst chewing, and you can always enjoy your favourite food.
Improved Confidence: After dental implants, you will smile lot more than before and that will happen because of your regained self-esteem.
Durability: Dental implants last many years and if you take good care then it can last for your lifetime. Sometimes people choose dental implants for its durability.
Convenience: Although this process lasts for a very long time, you can replace it or change it anytime you feel like you are having any problem regarding it.
There are also some different processes through which dental implants can be done. It depends on your problems and needs.
Some processes may include:
Replacing one single tooth: if your one tooth is missing then one crown and one implant would be enough.
Replacing many teeth: if you are having problems with several teeth, then a full bridge of dentures can be used.
Replacing all your teeth: if it is needed then all your teeth can be replaced.
Sinus Augmentation: this one is a little difficult process, it helps to develop bones for dental implants. It also develops the quality of your bone.
Dental implants are very successful now. It is durable and good looking. After the implant the artificial teeth feels like your own teeth and it is very easy to handle.
