Six Reasons You Need Regular Dental Checkup

Six Reasons You Need Regular Dental Checkup

You may not look forward to a dental examination, but you can't avoid it. A dental checkup every six months is crucial to your dental health and to maintain that beautiful smile. Skipping a dental checkup may save you time and a little discomfort now, but can cost you much more pain, time and money in the long run.

Here are 6 reasons to maintain a regular dental check up schedule:

  1. Fight Cavities: A clean up is a big part of a dental examination. No matter how well you brush and floss, there will always be spots that you miss out on. With time, plaque and tartar can build up in these spots leading to cavities if not addressed in time. The worst part about cavities is that you can feel them only once the tooth has been damaged. Thus, if you skip your dental examination, you may need a filling instead of a simple cleaning.
  2. Prevent gum disease: Plaque and tartar affect not only your teeth, but your gums as well leading to diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis. These are marked by shrinking of the gums that makes teeth sockets loose and eventually lead to tooth loss. Gum disease treatment can be very painful and expensive hence it is best to get plaque and tartar cleaned regularly before they begin to cause a problem.
  3. A brighter smile: Your daily cup of coffee or tea can stain your teeth with time. Wine and cigarettes also contribute towards making your teeth look dull. A professional dental cleaning can help remove these stains and give you a brighter smile.
  4. Find hidden problems: X rays are also an important part of a dental examination. An X-ray can detect problems that lie under the surface like misaligned teeth, bone decay, tumors and cysts. These problems rarely show any symptoms in their early stages and hence without an X-ray you would have to wait for it to advance to a more painful stage before seeking treatment.
  5. Boost overall health: Regular dental checkups can also lower your risk for heart disease and stroke. In addition to checking your mouth, a dentist will also check neck, jaw and lymph nodes during a regular check up for swelling and other abnormalities. This can help in the early detection and treatment of a number of diseases.
  6. Detect oral cancer: Oral cancer is easily treatable if diagnosed in its early stages. However, the only way to diagnose this correctly is by visiting the dentist. A test for oral cancer is pain free and takes hardly any time.

So, think about it. Visiting the dentist may make you a little uncomfortable but in the long run is well worth.

Please visit a dentist and get your teeth cleaned. By hearing what u are saying, diagnosis goes towards Pathological Migration, which is mainly caused by bone destruction caused due to deposits on teeth, We can help you better if you can send an OPG xray to me.

Do you keep your mouth covered while playing sports? If no, please start using a full-face helmet or a mouth guard so that any unnecessary injury can be prevented.

Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. Kindly consult a physician & dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning & fill tooth cavities with artificial enamel filling. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too.

Chewing a sugarless gum after your meal for around 20 minutes freshens your breath and also make the leftover food particles cling to it.

For correction of this big gap you need braces treatment only. You have to visit a orthodontist for that. Don't worry if you are worried about your appearance, then there are various methods by which it doesn't look that bad. - you can select tooth colored braces - you can place braces on inner side so it won't be visible from front.

Fainting during injection is due to fear of something. What do you fear of. Ask your doc to spray anaesthetic over area where it's to be injected. This will reduce the pain of injection you r taking.

Hello for mouth ulcers firstly take vitamin b complex everyday one tablet anytime. Also apply anabel gel on that ulcer and don't rinse but you can spit. If you are suffering frequently then most probably you must be suffering from acidity take pantoprazole dsr every morning empty stomach.

I have swollen lymph nodes around and inside my throat for more than 4 months. This all started when I got a mild infection in a wisdom tooth. Antibiotics prescribed by a dentist couldn't resolve this so I got Penicillin G prescribed a GP, they have reduced a little bit but they are still swollen. What should do to get rid of this ailment quickly?

BDS
Dentist, Kolkata
Visit your dentist for evaluating the position of the tooth. In many cases the tooth may not erupt at all due to mal position of the tooth in which case one needs to extract it . Since you are experiencing pain since four months it is advisable to visit your dentist and get an antibiotic coverage. Rinse your mouth with luke warm water with a pinch of common salt added to it three to four times a day. Sounds simple but it usually work like wonders. Thanks and regards

Improving Gum Health
You can exercise for healthier gums as well. Gently bite down so as to make sure that your teeth make a clinking sound when they meet. Repeat this 30 to 40 times continously. This exercise will stimulate the flow of blood and will keep your gums healthy.
