Regular dental check-up are essential and highly recommended because they provide numerous health benefits for your healthy teeth and beautiful smile.

Benefits of Regular Check-up:

Regular dental check-up will ensure that any potential dental issues are identified and quickly treated before they can turn into painful, highly expensive problems which may create permanent damage to your tooth.

The importance of check-ups are in identifying any decay or critical tooth damage, as well as a thorough examination for early diagnosis of gum disease or oral cancer.

Once every six months regular check-up is needed to make sure that you are not experiencing any sensitivity, pain or discomfort around your teeth and jaw.

Certain conditions require more frequent visits to the dentists including periodontal and gum disease, poor oral hygiene habits, pregnancy, diabetes and certain medical conditions. These conditions leave the patient with a higher risk of gum disease, cavities and oral cancer. The most effective way to maintain the health of your teeth and gums is to regularly brush and floss your teeth after meals
