Oral Hygiene Tip of the Month – December

Why are regular dental check-up’s Important?

  1. During your dental check-up appointment, the dental clinician also performs a cancer screening assessment of the head & neck area
  2. An overall evaluation of your teeth and gum health is performed, ensuring that any risk factors or diseases are caught early or prevented. (This includes cavities, gum inflammation or gum disease).
  3. Sometimes, x-rays are required to show us what is happening inside or surrounding the tooth. As problems may be occurring under the surface without you knowing!
  4. Dentists can keep track of harmful or bad habits, which may contribute to the progression of oral diseases (i.e. smoking, poor diabetes control, poor tooth brushing). They can also offer you ways to improve or reduce these high-risk habits
