Do I really need a check-up?
Nothing is worrying me or hurting in my mouth, why do I need to see the dentist?
Many conditions of the mouth are silent achievers. Gum disease, for example, gives very few clues that it is present in the gums. Decay often goes unnoticed until it causes a painful infection. There are acidic foods & drinks that we consume which damage the surface of our teeth. These are just a few examples of what your dental team are looking for when we see you. Detecting conditions early is so important and so often these conditions are easily treated.
Seeking 6 monthly check-ups may be the difference between receiving simple preventive care and losing a tooth. Talking to you and giving you the most up to date information regarding your dental health is a high priority for our team. This is why we recommend a check up every 6 months.
