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.

Teeth may be lost due to various reasons - decay, periodontal disease, age, trauma, etc. Whatever the reason, losing a tooth causes some side effects, as noted below:
- Reduced chewing efficiency, thereby affecting nutrition
- Aesthetics, more effect if front teeth are lost
- Structural support to the face - puckering can happen
- Overall nutrition affected
For someone who has lost a tooth or teeth, dentures are a boon. There are various options for people, and choice can be made based on economic, cosmetic, and overall health conditions.
Partial/complete: If only one or few teeth are being replaced, it is a partial denture. This can be fixed or removable. In case of old age or trauma where all teeth are lost, a complete denture would be in order. In most cases, this is a removable denture.
Fixed dentures/Removable dentures: Depending on whether the denture is fixed in the mouth or can be removed when not in use.
Metal or ceramic or combination: In some cases, for aesthetic or economic reasons, the patient can decide to go for a metallic fixed partial denture. The fabricated crowns will have a metallic surface but is acceptable given the strength, especially in posterior teeth, which take a heavy mastication load.
In cases of front teeth loss, the denture should almost always be a ceramic one, especially for cosmetic reasons. If the person cannot afford, a removable denture can be done.
The optimal denture should be chosen based on a number of factors including the functional and aesthetic expectations.
Caring for dentures: It depends on the types of dentures you choose.
Fixed dentures: This requires religious brushing, flossing or interdental brushing, and rinsing. The edges of the denture can put pressure on the gums and cause irritation, this needs to be watched for.
- Clean the dentures after every meal
- Be careful when handling them to avoid fall and breakage
- Handle the clasps with care, altered clasps may not fit properly
- Clean the bone and gums around the denture after each meal
- Soak the dentures overnight in water or a denture-soaking solution
- Avoid soaking it in hot water, can lead to warping of the denture plate
- Avoid hard brushing of the dentures
With any denture in the mouth, visit the dentist regularly every 6 months to keep a constant vigil on your overall dental health. Ill-fitting dentures, especially, need to be corrected immediately as they can lead to irritation, ulcers, and even infections.
With these small precautions, the denture can function to its optimal level and serve as a good replacement of the lost tooth.
