The dental check-up in S.E. London

02 / 12 / 2010

Ask most people in the south-east of London what their list of priorities are in day to day life and it’s pretty certain that getting a dental check-up isn’t one of them. In fact, for some people, it’s pretty much one to avoid unless in an emergency. It’s quite incredible how ignorant we can be when it comes to the importance of oral hygiene. But in cold reality, it should be high on our list of priorities for health reasons. Complications can arise quickly in the mouth and if left untreated, can lead to complex and expensive treatments in the future. A simple visit to the dentist can nip these problems in the bud. It’s a chance for your dentist to carry out extensive checks for a series of nasties such as

gum disease, plaque and decay and subsequently treat you to prevent further issues developing. Yet, most of us will see a check up as something we have to do, when in fact it’s the perfect opportunity to discuss a range of issues that affect us. Are we using the right brush and toothpaste and brushing correctly? It’s a great chance to talk about lifestyle habits such as diet, smoking and drinking and any notions of cosmetic dentistry that we may have been thinking about. It’s very easy to take the need of a check-up lightly, but before you do, it may be worth considering the deeper implications to ‘ducking’ a simple dental appointment. Problems in the mouth can affect the rest of the body and can lead to heart, digestion and blood problems. Maybe you should put it higher up the list of priorities now?
