Yearly dental check ups are essential. Contact your South East London dentist to make sure you have yours.

30 / 06 / 2012

In our busy lives it is easy to let your dental check ups slide; busy one week, away the next, there is always an excuse to ignore your dental health. But dental check ups are become more important than ever with the increase in sugar filled produce we eat and the acidic diets we unknowingly maintain. Even if you have no noticeable dental problems it is still essential to have a check up at least once a year. Check ups allow your dentist to see any minor issues that could develop into serious problems if left unchecked.

While regular brushing and flossing is essential, even this does not guarantee perfect dental health. When visiting your dentist for regular check ups you can have teeth professionally cleaned, referred to as ‘scaling and polishing’. Using their special equipment dentists will be able to remove stubborn plaque that builds up in hard to reach places and cannot be removed with regular brushing. The polishing will also be able to return the aesthetic appeal of bright, white teeth through removing any stains that can accrue through drinking wine, coffee and many other products.

While longstanding cavities will make themselves known through pain and discomfort, the early stages can easily go by completely unnoticed. At your check up your South East London dentist will carefully inspect your teeth for the beginnings of any cavities. Catching these at an early stage allows the dentist to advise you on preventative measures that will stop further damage. If necessary they can insert a filling or other dental treatment to fix the existing damage. It is essential to visit your dentist at least once a year, your dentist may advise more frequent visits if they deem it necessary. Preventing dental problems is a lot easier than treating them.
