Good reasons to visit your dental office regularly
You may have heard that prevention is key in oral health. With that in mind we prepared a short list with some good reasons to visit your dentist regularly:
- Prevent oral problems to get “bigger”: it is critical to be proactive and see your dentist frequently so every abnormality will be identified, detected, and treated during the early stages, before they develop into a major problem.
- Prevent gum disease: dentists and dental hygienists will look for signs of gum disease and advise you about it.
- Prevent oral cancer: dental care professionals will look for indicators of oral cancer, along with head and neck examination. They will look for lesions in the soft tissues and on your head or neck. They will also examine the lips for any red or white areas.
The best thing to do is to book your Complete Oral Exam with your dentist. After that, you can maintain your regular visits to your dental hygienist.
What should you expect during a Complete Oral Exam (COE)?
During your complete oral exam, your dentist and/or dental hygienist will take a thorough medical and dental history followed by clinical assessment. They also may take x-rays.
This complete assessment will help them prepare a treatment plan especially for you. If any treatment is required, the necessary steps will be taken to begin and complete the treatment without any delay (because a delay means you are giving the dental issue a chance to grow more).
