Visiting your dentist: the importance of dental check-ups

by Wildsmile

Definitely one of the habits that will help us most to improve our quality of life is to take care of our teeth. Nobody would like to stop eating their favorite food or simply stop smiling because they don't feel comfortable with their teeth. The most important thing to know is that many dental problems could be avoided thanks to regular visits to the dentist.


What conditions could you prevent by going to the dentist?

One of the most common diseases in teeth are cavities, with a simple visit to the dentist we can quickly remove this problem; if not, we are risking the health of our teeth, to the degree that we could lose them. Another very common condition is dental plaque, which is a colorless, sticky layer of bacteria that adheres to the teeth, causing gingivitis and dental caries. Not having an annual dental cleaning favors the accumulation of tartar, causing inflammation of the gums. This problem, if not treated, can lead to the displacement of dental pieces, causing their loss.

Cancer is one of the diseases that most affect us today, but thanks to regular visits to the dentist we can detect it in its early stages, our dentist when seeing any sign of oral cancer will advise us, so we can treat it from its beginning.

If you have amalgams, crowns or dental implants, it is important to have them checked by your dentist at least once a year, to make sure they are not cracked, loose or broken. One of the problems of having a cracked amalgam is cavities.

Having a dry mouth or bad breath is not something that should be ignored, they are problems that affect our health and quality of life. Halitosis has several causes, but one of the most common is the accumulation of food, dental plaque or tartar, with a dental cleaning every six months we will avoid a great number of oral problems in the future.

Why we don't visit the dentist?

One of the most common reasons is fear, either because of a negative experience as a child or because of a treatment that caused us pain and a lot of discomfort. Also the economic factor plays a very important role when deciding whether or not to go to the dentist is a priority, this problem can be solved by signing up for a dental plan, receiving discounts on a large number of dental treatments. Another very common reason is that we do not give importance to the need to make regular visits to the dentist and we only go unfortunately when we have pain or discomfort.

How often is it recommended to visit the dentist?

All health professionals agree that prevention is the most effective way to prevent problems in our mouth and teeth. In this case, most experts recommend going to the dentist at least once a year to detect and prevent dental diseases that, in their most advanced cases, can lead to the loss of teeth. This way, during regular visits, your dentist will check and clean your teeth, apply fluoride to protect your teeth against cavities, and in many cases, recommend an X-ray to detect possible diseases such as periodontal disease.
