It comes as no surprise that many are in fear of regular dental check-ups. There is nothing to fear. Psychological studies have shown that regular exposure to what you most fear builds up tolerance and removes anxiety of your fear over time.

A regular dental check-up is important for a large list of reasons.

Here are 7 reasons why you should do regular dental check-ups here at Dentist4U:

REASON 1: HYGIENE

If you’re not brushing and flossing effectively, plaque and tartar begins to build up. Plaque and tartar can cause dental decay and cavities. Without a dentist, plaque and tartar is very difficult to remove. A regular dental clean works to prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar.

REASON 2: TECHNIQUE

A good dentist will show you brushing and flossing techniques which works to prevent the buildup of plaque & tartar as well as preventing cavities if possible. It’s all in the technique of how you maintain your teeth at home.

REASON 3: CAVITIES

Did you know that some cavities cannot be seen on the surface? This is why a regular dental visit is so important. Finding a cavity when it’s small prevents a much larger dental work for you.

REASON 4: ORAL CANCER DETECTION

A dentist properly screens for oral cancer. However, don’t fear the word; oral cancer is very rare. When found early, it is treatable. Your chances of finding cancer early is very high with regular dental visits.

REASON 5: INFECTION

Do you regularly experience bleeding gums while brushing? Are your gums red and inflamed? This signals a gum disease. A dentist will show you how to get rid of gum infections like gingivitis.

REASON 6: MAINTAINING WHITE TEETH

A regular dental visit will also teach you how to maintain your pearly white smile. White teeth are desirable by so many people. Dentist4U can give you techniques and tips in person on how to maintain white teeth.

REASON 7: X-RAYS

There is a common myth that regular dental x-rays are bad for you. This is not true; the radiation in current dental x-rays is very minimal and does not cause health implications. A regular x-ray will show exactly what’s going on under the surface.

The list can go on and on as to why regular dental visits are so crucial to oral health.
