Periodic Dental Care
A regular dental check-up is very important. Normally, everyone should have a regular dental visit at least every 6 months. In this way, problems that may develop can be avoided by early diagnosis and preventive treatments.
The oral environment is an environment where bacteria are constantly active and these activities are continuously triggered by eating and drinking. Therefore, although we think that we protect our teeth by toothbrushing twice a day, bacterial activities in the mouth continue non-stop for 24 hours.
Regular dentist visits help gum diseases, tooth decay etc. be diagnosed at their early stages. Thus, it is possible to intervene with the problem before progress. If we fail with these regular visits, a tooth that can be treated with a filling may need a root canal treatment or it may be extracted. Tooth loss may lead to dental implant treatment. When delayed gum diseases that can be treated with a scaling procedure in the early period may cause gum recessions, tooth loss and bone loss which require serious surgeries. Infections in the mouth affect the whole body. They may trigger diseases such as heart problems and diabetes.
Treating oral and dental problems in their early stages by simple procedures is much more beneficial from all points of view. It is possible to avoid these problems by preventive treatments. That’s why you should visit your dentist regularly.
