Are you aware of the fact that you need to have regular dental check ups (every 6 months)? Some of you may not agree or even ask WHY. The reason is very simple – because oral hygiene matters!
You may have healthy teeth and gums and believe that dentist needs to be consulted only if there is some dental ailment like pain, cavity etc. However, regular check-up can help prevent and detect a number of oral conditions.
Some of the reasons why you should have regular dental check-ups are listed below:
1. Detection and prevention of cavity, gum diseases and oral cancer
These three conditions can not be detected during early stages without medical examination. Cavity is caused by bacteria. Pain while eating, burning sensation in tissues around teeth etc. are some of its symptoms. Cavity can be treated with re-calcification of enamel with fluoride during early stages. If it goes undetected, you will have to either get it filled or undergo root canal treatment in Tijuana. Severe gum diseases can even cause loss of teeth. Unhealthy gums are likely to cause other diseases too. Early diagnosis of oral cancer can save your life.
2. Plaque and Tartar. Check up and cleaning are two important aspects which are taken of by every dentist in Tijuana. Removing plaque and tartar is a part of cleaning process. It prevents peridontal diseases. Plaque, if left unattended, leads to tartar which can not be cleaned by brushing or flossing at home.
3. Dentist can guide you about correct brushing and flossing techniques. You can also get some valuable tips on maintaining healthy teeth and gums. For example, you should use tooth paste containing Fluoride, brush teeth twice a day and floss every day.
4. Dental examination also facilitates detection of conditions in other parts of body. Dentist may even examine your head and neck. He may conduct thorough check up of your mouth to detect possibility of diabetes or vitamin deficiencies. You should not be shocked if your dentist examines your bite, saliva, face or lower jaw joint movement.
