Going to the Dentist for some can be daunting, and even if you’ve had a few dental check-ups previously and been given the all clear, you may still be tempted to skip one or two of them. It is important that people understand the significance of maintaining oral health, not only for your mouth, but for your general health!
Here are some reasons that we here at Oxford House Dental recommend that you get your check-ups consistently.
Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Be On Top Of Your Dental Appointment:
Of course, cleaner teeth! Sometimes maintaining this can be difficult, and every-day life has an impact on our teeth. Substances such as tartar and plaque can build up, in-fact soft plaque builds up within 24 hours! If you are undergoing dental treatment, such as braces, you may notice more than usual amounts of build-up in your mouth. These substances need to be professionally removed from your teeth. Maintaining your dental appointments will keep them looking fresh and clean for longer
Are you a procrastinator? Do you often put something off? Well, you’d be surprised that a lot of people don’t go to the dentist because of being overly anxious and nervous about getting their teeth looked at. Truth be told, this makes the situation a lot worse, putting off a cavity can turn it from just needing a filling, to possibly having to remove teeth that are not able to be saved. We recommend getting at least two dental appointments a year, to make sure any cavities don’t become a major problem! If you are suffering from this issue, and need a Dentist in Milton Keynes, don’t hesitate to call Oxford House Dental Practice on 01908 373 614.
3. Keep gum-disease at bay!
Plaque and tartar build up along the gum line and causes damage to your gum tissues. Maintaining a healthy mouth and healthy routines can avoid this and stop it from becoming progressively worse, combined with seeing your dentist to make sure you are tackling any issues arising in your mouth. Periodontitis can be a final result of damaged gum tissues.
The best way to avoid these problems is to get regular dental appointments done. Oxford House Dental is based in Milton Keynes, Fenny Stratford, minutes from the local train station.
Your mouth, teeth and gums can impact every system in your body – including your digestive system, circulation, reproductive and respiratory systems. By seeing your dentist at least twice a year you’re on the right track to better oral health.
Keep in mind that some people may need to go to the dentist more than twice a year. Factors such as pregnancy, diabetes, smoking, having gum disease already or being prone to cavities, will help your dentist decide how often you should come in for dental appointments.
If you haven’t been to the dentist in a long time, you can expect a set of X-rays, a full cleaning, and an examination at your first dental appointment. After this, regular check ups will include a cleaning and cavity check unless your treatment program is customized by your dentist to include other screenings or procedures as well. We welcome patients from all over!
Regardless of which way you look at it, skipping dental appointments is never a good idea. If you would like more information about our dentistry services, schedule a visit with one of our expert dentists. Contact Oxford House Dental Practice on 01908 373 614 to schedule an appointment today.
