Your teeth and mouth play an important role in the way you present yourself to the Your teeth and mouth play an important role in the way you present yourself to the world and hence in your self-confidence. They also have an important part in everyday functions such as eating and speaking and hence in your overall health.
During a checkup, your dentist will complete a comprehensive examination of your mouth to identify areas with potential to become painful or problematic. Routine radiographs may be taken in the examination to aid in diagnosis. A treatment plan can then be put in place to address these areas.Intervention may range from replacing old leaking fillings to providing instruction and advice on diet and oral health.
Regular checkups allow a healthy environment to be achieved and maintained in your mouth. These checkups give the dentist or hygienist the opportunity to examine you for the presence of the two main oral diseases –tooth decay or gum disease – both of which are mostly preventable; and even to complete a soft tissue screen for the presence of less common diseases such as oral cancer, which may be easily treated if detected early.
At our clinic we enjoy seeing our clients at their regular twice-yearly checkups. We strive to work with you towards achieving and maintaining a healthy, functional and aesthetically pleasing smile.
