Routine dental visits

  1. 1. Routine Dental Visit – Why it is important ? 1
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION o Regular dental visits are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums. And mouth is a window into the health of our body. Lets see why routine dental visits are extremely important? 2
  3. 3. WHY IS IT IMPORTANT ? o Cavities are generally painless until they grow extremely big inside the tooth and wipe out the nerve and blood vessels in the tooth. Cavities may be discovered in the early stages when routine checkups take place. o When a patient has routine dental check-ups they can reduce the financial burdens associated with complicated and severe forms of dental disease. o Routine dental visits are crucial, especially if you are planning to become pregnant or are facing a course of chemotherapy, which can reduce immunity against oral bacteria and cause mouth sores. So dental diseases may be diagnosed and cured at an early age &with less expenditures. 3
  4. 4. AT WHAT AGE IT SHOULD BE STARTED ? o Dental visits should begin with the appearance of a child’s first tooth, typically around six months but no later than one year. o (During the first-tooth visit, dentists check for proper oral and facial development to determine whether teeth are growing in properly and to detect early tooth decay, It also gives dentists the chance to walk parents through a home dental care program for their children.) o Further the dental check ups should be done after every six months. o If you need additional help, your dentist may even suggest more frequent visits. 4
  5. 5. WHAT GOES ON DURING A DENTAL VISIT ? Your dentist will start off by: o The Head And Neck Examination o Examining your face ,neck, lymph nodes ad lower jaw joints. o The Clinical Dental Examination o Examining your teeth for decays and broken fillings, your gums, any loose tooth, any calculus deposits and tongue. 5
  6. 6. WHAT ALL DISEASES ARE PREVENTED BY REGULAR VISITS ? o Tooth decay is one of the most common of all the disorders, second only to the usual cold. o Plaque starts to build up on teeth with in 15 minutes after consuming food (the time when most bacterial activity takes place).Food, beverages and tobacco can stain teeth as well. If not removed, soft plaque can harden on the teeth and irritate the gum tissue. If not treated, plaque can lead to gum disease. o Periodontal disease is an unceasing bacterial infection, which affects the gums and as well the bone supporting the teeth. 6
  7. 7. WHAT ALL DISEASES ARE PREVENTED BY REGULAR VISITS ? o Diseases like oral cancers and leukoplakias can be diagnosed at an early stage. o Persons with periodontal disease are more likely to develop cardiovascular diseases than individuals without periodontal issues. 7
  8. 8. NOTES o After making a habit of making regular dental visits, it is your obligation to follow the treatment plan for dental work that your dentist will prescribe for you. o Seeing a dentist for regular dental check ups and cleanings, brushing twice a day, flossing daily and eating a nutritional diet are some of the very simple techniques that can go a long way to maintain a good overall health and therefore a fit and healthy lifestyle. 8
