The Importance of Regular Dental Checkups

May 20, 2019


A regular dental visit consists of two parts; checkup and cleaning. During your appointment, the dentist will carefully examine your teeth and gums for signs of decay or infection. They will then examine your tongue, cheeks, mouth, head, and neck to check for any signs of swelling and redness. They will remove any tartar buildup with a special scaling tool and ensure there are no lingering traces of it. Following that, the dentist will clean your teeth thoroughly.

As you can see, a regular dentist visit can be very important. The recommendation is that you visit your dentist at least twice a year to ensure your teeth are in good health. We recommend regular visits because:

  • It helps keep teeth and gums healthy.
  • It helps to spot signs of decay and infection early.
  • It helps to spot signs of serious health conditions like cancer early.
  • It helps to keep your teeth clean and strong.
  • It can help you avoid loss of natural teeth.

Without regular visits to the dentist, you can potentially miss the initial signs of tooth decay or other oral problems. Such conditions may continue getting worse without treatment which may lead to pain and require a visit to the dentist. That’s why regular visits are necessary.
