When you were a child, chances were that your parents had to drag you to attend a dental check-up. However, there are many reasons why attending check-ups are important and few of them are to do with your parents’ rationing of sweets afterwards!
As an adult, attending check-ups is rarely as dramatic as it was when you were a child but few people genuinely understand why it is important to see our dental team at least twice a year. In recent times, understandably, attending a dental surgery has not been at the top of a person’s health priorities but that does not reduce the significance of attending a check-up.
At Harley Street Dental, our dentist in Harley Street is still able to offer check-ups to you and your family to ensure that your oral health stays in good shape. We can provide you and your family with tips on maintaining high levels of oral hygiene, while also discussing other areas of dental care such as orthodontics and cosmetics.
So, why should you come and see our dentist in Harley Street as soon as possible?
With dental care, prevention is better than cure and of course, seeing our team as regularly as possible ensures that any dental issues are caught early, allowing for all-around easier treatment.
Concerning children, regular check-ups with our dentist in Harley Street allows them to become more familiarised with the entire process, preventing them from forming phobias in adulthood.
The link between a plaque-free mouth and overall good health has long been established, meaning that getting in the dental chair can do far more than prevent a filling.
Everything from cardiovascular disease to cancer has been linked to poor oral health, so attending regular check-ups can save your life. Also, as oral cancer screening is part of each check-up we provide at Harley Street, we can also offer early interventions with cancer treatments if needed.
Of course, while checking for cavities and unusual growths is part of any dental check-up, our team will also aim to clean any stained fillings that you may have, along with giving your teeth a thorough clean.
This, in turn, gives you a whiter, healthier smile which will boost your confidence and wellbeing. What’s not to like about that?
A check-up is rarely expensive, even if you need to have a filling replaced or growth explored.
However, delaying check-ups can allow decay to set in which may lead to cavities, extractions and even infections, all of which are more complicated and expensive to treat. So if you are looking for a way to save on your finances, (and prevent discomfort) attend check-ups as often as you can.
If you want to have our teeth straightened or are curious about veneers, why not use the check-up as an opportunity to discuss these options with our dental team?
You can also enquire about other procedures, such as whitening and even facial aesthetics. Brilliant!
