It’s very easy in a busy city like Bath to sometimes cancel or simply forget about a dental check-up, but you do so at your peril because, things can go wrong pretty quickly in your mouth and just because you have got the best products the market can offer, doesn’t make the cut once tooth decay has started to get in. You see, by going for an appointment, your dentist can spot things like this and then rectify them early, before they get worse. That’s what a check-up is all about- looking deep into your teeth and gums for signs of trouble- a simple x-ray can identify this in seconds and it’s definitely something you couldn’t possible detect at home. Your dentist will also give your teeth a quick de-scale, clean and polish. But you can also benefit in other ways from your check-up, it’s not just there to patch up your failings, it’s there to ensure your teeth are healthy in the future: this is the time to chat about dental issues that you have, maybe you’d like some cosmetic work done or are worried about the way you clean your teeth…this is the time to talk. It’s also a great way to find out about dental procedures that you may have to have in the future. The more you get on board with your dentist the less you will have to worry about.
