The warning signs that show you need to see a dentist. When should you see the dentist – if you have any of these conditions or signs?
Whether you are 80 or 8, your oral health is important.
Did you know that 50% of Australians fail to see a dentist each year, even though regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene can prevent most dental disease and improve your health?
If you are putting off that dental visit or not sure if you need to see a dentist read on.
Even if you don’t have any symptoms, you can still have oral health problems that only a dentist can diagnose.
Regular dental visits will also help prevent problems from developing.
Continuity of care is an important part of any health plan and dental health is no exception.
Keeping your mouth healthy is essential for your overall health. It’s also important to keep your dentist informed of any changes in your overall health since many medical conditions can affect your oral health too.
Regular dental visits are important because as a dentist I can help spot oral health problems early on when treatment is likely to be simpler and more affordable.
I can also work with you to help prevent many oral problems from developing in the first place.
Visiting the dentist regularly is also important because some diseases or medical conditions, like diabetes, have symptoms that can appear in the mouth.
There is no one-size-fits-all dental treatment and that is why I always provide care based on your individual needs and situation. Some people need to visit the dentist once or twice a year; others may need more visits.
You are a unique individual, with a unique smile and unique needs when it comes to keeping your smile healthy and my goal is to work with you so that you can have a beautiful looking smile and great oral health for life.
If it has been more than 6 months since you last dental visit or you have any of the signs listed above call us today.
