Importance of Regular Dental Checkups & Cleanings

At WiSE Dental, we believe that the key to long lasting oral health lies in preventive care. Most people visit a dentist when they are in severe pain, at which point a root canal treatment or fillings may be required. Regular dental check-ups are the most effective to monitor your dental health, identify potentially serious problems and protect your teeth.

We combine world-class dental technology with a patient-centric approach that is all about building relationships and providing personalised dental care to patients of all ages.

What Happens During a Dental Check-Up?

When you arrive for your appointment, a dental professional will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums. This will help the dentist spot potential cavities and problems with your gums. A regular check-up also includes the removal of plaque and tartar and polishing of your teeth. Dentists are even trained to identify problems with the throat, neck and soft tissue in the mouth.

If there is any need for further treatment, your dental hygienist will ask you to undergo tests and an x-ray to check for deeper problems.

Benefits Of Dental Checkups

Below are just some of the benefits of scheduling a regular dental check-up.

Preventive Care

Preventive dentistry is about developing oral care habits, checking your teeth regularly and following dental practices that prevent enamel wear, cavities and gum disease. Preventive care saves you money, eliminates the need for invasive dental procedures and ensures that visits to the dentist are stress free.

Treat Bad Breath

Bad breath is caused by the build-up of harmful, odour causing bacteria in the mouth. This usually happens when a patient follows an ineffective dental hygiene plan. There are many ways in which bacteria thrive in the mouth. Food debris stuck between teeth and dead skin on the surface of the tongue are broken down by bacteria, releasing unpleasant odours. Chronic bad breath could also be a sign of more severe issues such as gum disease. Visit your dentist regularly for teeth cleaning and removal of plaque to keep bad breath in check.

Save Money

Invasive dental care can be time consuming and expensive in the long run. Routine dental check-ups are affordable, painless and even if your dentist spots a cavity, it is highly likely that it can be cleaned and filled quickly and easily.

If left unaddressed, even minor dental issues can become serious enough to require lengthy, expensive visits to the dental clinic. Gum disease, halitosis and severe tooth decay can be challenging to treat as they become serious.
