Having your teeth professionally cleaned and checked is extremely important to your overall health. This is because, regular dental visits can help with the prevention and detection of oral health concerns.
A professional check-up and clean is designed to detect dental problems such as gum disease, decay as well as a host of other dental and general health problems.
It is generally recommended to visit your dental professional for a clean at 6-month intervals. When you visit a Coastal Dental Care practice your dentist will discuss your regular dental hygiene routine and the frequency of dental cleans required.
If you follow the appropriate at-home oral hygiene routine and visit the dentist regularly, you will have a greater chance of preventing dental problems. This in turn, will help you maintain your natural teeth for life.
For patients who visit the dentist often, a check-up and clean usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes. However, depending your teeth’s condition, and whether x-rays are needed, treatment can take up to an hour.
If you are concerned about your at home oral hygiene routine, your dentist can help to provide recommendations. Some suggestions might be brushing and flossing technique, nutrition or diet.
If you are visiting a new dentist or it is your first dental visit, they will need your medical history. One example of where a patients’ medical history is extremely important is if the patient has a history of gum disease. This way, the dentist can provide solutions for your case.
It is also good practice to keep your dentist up to date with any medications you are taking. As some prescriptions can affect the environment within our mouths and make us more susceptible to dental problems.
