It isn’t easy if you are flying around Bath, busy as a bee, to fit in such things as a dental check-up….but it is imperative that you try. You may well think that you have covered all bases with your oral hygiene at home, but you do not have access to such luxuries as an x-ray machine, so you can never know if you are looking after your oral health correctly, but your dentist can. By going along to a dental check-up, your dentist can pick-up on things you may have missed through an x-ray and by probing inside your mouth; things like tooth decay and signs of gum disease can be spotted in an instant by your dentist and treated accordingly. Your teeth can also be given a thorough clean and polish and leave them feeling refreshed and healthy. But while you are there at the surgery, it is the perfect time to discuss issues that you may have with your teeth, talk about your general oral health and things that you may like to have done to improve the way you smile through cosmetic dentistry. This is your time to express your worries: Clifton Dental of Bristol serves the area- they can offer advice, point you in the right places and tell you all you need to know about optimising your time with your dentist when you go for a check-up.
