Professional Teeth Cleanings and Complete Checkups
As recently as 50 years ago, most people still had dreadful teeth - and a large part of the reason is that check-ups weren’t common yet. Today, an adult check-up is perhaps the best way to prevent oral cancer, excessive tartar, gum disease and other problems.
An adult check-up is also your best shot at getting detailed, accurate information about any cosmetic procedures you may want in the future.
What Does a Check-Up Involve?
A check-up usually involves an examination by a dentist; an oral cancer screening; an X-Ray scan. In our clinic, we use digital x-rays which are faster and significantly safer than the regular variety.
A check-up can involve gum examination, especially if it’s your first time - or if you’ve been suffering from painful gums. It can also be used to get an imprint for your bite and/or track the progress of your orthodontic treatment.
Why Should I Get a Check-Up?
A lot of dental problems and diseases aren’t visible to the naked eye. That means you can’t accurately evaluate your own dental health at home. That might not seem like a big deal - but keep in mind that once a problem gets serious, it can have drastic consequences. A small cavity left unchecked can make your whole tooth collapse; a minor gum problem can make your teeth fall out if left untreated long enough.
Of course, these are extreme scenarios - but the point is, the longer you take to look at a problem, the higher the chances of it becoming big and unmanageable. That’s why it pays to come in for check-ups on time!
