The need for a check-up in Sunbury
Getting a dental check-up is not always high on most peoples ‘to do’ list in Sunbury. But ignore it at your peril for regular check-ups are important, not only for the hygiene of your mouth, but for the health of your whole body and bank account in the future. It should not be seen as an inconvenience in your diary, but as a chance to identify and sought out problems, and discuss any anxieties that you have about your mouth. The mouth is very complex and complications can build up very quickly if untreated. A build up of bacteria can lead to plaque and tartar, gum disease, cavities and eventually tooth loss. And this can have a knock-on affect throughout the body- heart problems and diabetes. At the check-up, your dentist will examine teeth, gums and tongue for any signs of problems, de-scale plaque and tartar and decide on a course of action for treatment and repairs if required. You can discuss any problems you may have encountered since your last visit. It’s the chance to discuss all manner of subjects, diet, oral hygiene at home, drinking and smoking and the possibility of cosmetic work in the future. It’s an old saying but prevention is always better than cure, and cure can be very expensive in the long run. Basic procedures and cosmetic treatments, though more readily accessible these days, are not getting any cheaper. So, now will you go for a check-up?
