The usual length of time for each dental check-up is every 6 months but some people may need to have more frequent checks and others less, depending on what their general oral health situation is. Your dentist will advise you on the frequency of your check-up based on how healthy your teeth and gums are and the likelihood of future problems. So this could range from a check-up every 3 months to 2 years depending on your situation.
Regular dental check-ups are not only important but are very much in your interest. During the check-up your teeth, gums and mouth will be examined and you will be asked about your general health and any oral problems you may be experiencing. You will also be given practical advice about your diet, teeth-cleaning routine Eand smoking and alcohol use. If you require any treatment than a future appointment is then booked to address it.
Identify problems early
If you fail to have regular check-ups then problems can build over time and if left untreated it could potentially be more difficult to treat and ultimately more expensive for you to pay for because the problem hasn’t been dealt with early enough.
Just because you’re not experiencing any pain at the moment doesn’t mean that there aren’t any problems lurking in the background. Your check-up is geared towards identifying any problems early so that the appropriate treatment can be given and so you can be rest assured that your oral health is well cared for.
If it’s been a long time since your last check-up and you want peace of mind that everything is okay with your teeth and gums then it makes sense to make an appointment. At Bhandal Dentists we offer both private and NHS appointments so contact us now and book yourself in.
