Many years ago, most people’s teeth were in bad shape. There were no guidelines at the time for taking care of one’s oral health, and few people visited a dentist unless they were experiencing a problem.
Now that we know better and understand the importance of preventive care, we have no excuses for not taking care of our teeth and gums. Studies are also pointing to more of a connection between oral health and systemic health, so keeping our mouth healthy contributes to keeping our body healthy.
For general dentistry in West Perth, WA, we invite you to contact Western Prosthodontic Centre. If it’s been a while since you have seen the dentist, we can help get you back on track with a check-up and a good preventive programme. We always accept new patients.
Preventive Examinations Twice a Year
Although there is uncertainty surrounding the twice-a-year guidelines, they have served people well because oral health is much improved. When you visit our dental clinic twice each year, this enables our dentists to find dental problems while they are still small ones. The earlier we discover a problem, the easier and less invasive is the treatment.
Gum health is essential to your overall oral health—you can’t have healthy teeth without healthy gums—and many people don’t realise they have gum disease. Because gum disease often presents without symptoms, the only way to find out for sure if your gums are healthy is with regular examinations.
Dental Cleans Twice Each Year
One of the best ways to keep gums healthy is to have professional cleanings done twice each year. Because you cannot remove all plaque and tartar from your teeth with a toothbrush or floss, special dental instruments are needed to do a thorough job.
