To maintain good oral health, dentists advise a visit every 6 months. Some patients might fear visiting a dentist, but there are many advantages of visiting a dentist. The primary advantage of visiting a dentist regularly is that patient is less likely to encounter a serious disease in the advanced stage. So, we can say in the long run visiting a dentist can save your cost.
Check For Life-Threatening Diseases: A regular checkup includes oral x-rays to determine the presence of oral cancer symptoms. If it is diagnosed in the early stages, then it is easier to cure. In addition to this, it also detects cavities, presence of plaque and tartar between your teeth. Generally, plaques are a sticky layer of bacteria that hardens if not removed and eventually becomes tartar. This becomes the primary cause of gum bleeding and oral diseases.
Check For Spaces: To check gums, a special tool is used by professional dentists to measure the depth of spaces between teeth and gums. In the case of gum diseases, this space becomes deeper. This can make the gums bleeding, red and swollen and it can also become a cause of bad breath. So, if the gum infection is detected in the early stage, it can be cured easily. Whereas in the advanced stages, not only it will cost higher, but it can also cause tooth loss.
Prevent Plaque: If there is the presence of plaque, the dentist will remove it from special tools. Plaque and tartar cannot be removed by daily flossing and brushing. It is important to remove plaque as it can cause cavities, teeth discoloration, and tooth decay. Removing plaque is also known as scaling. Once the teeth are scaled, then they are polished to remove the stains. Then this is followed by flossing to make sure the area between teeth is clean.
Save Tooth: During regular checkups, Emergency Dentist Basingstoke also checks for tooth decay. Tooth decay causes a cavity which is a hole in the tooth. The advanced stage of tooth decay can cause the extraction of teeth. Therefore an adult can lose a tooth permanently if it needs to be pulled out. Tooth loss also costs the smile of an individual. So, small cavities are easier to treat and can save you teeth.
In conclusion, regular dental checkups can save your money and your tooth.
