Every patient has heard their dentist talk about the importance of having regular dental check-ups and we know that many people wonder if they are really necessary? But those that do have them, learn the reason why. It is because they rarely have unexpected problems. Their oral health is good, and that is mainly due to the regular check-ups.
For example, it is possible to have dental problems and not experience any pain, making some think that they don’t need a check-up. When you have a dental check-up we do more than clean your teeth. Check-ups are often a preventive appointment to determine the current oral health of patients. More important, check-ups not only support good oral health, they also support their overall general health.
