Posted by DR. CHRISTINE Y. LEE on Feb 11 2021, 07:00 AM

Spring is almost here, which means most of you are getting ready to clean your homes and bring that positive, refreshed vibe into your house. From the basement to the attic, everything gets flipped, rearranged, or dusted, so why not give the same treatment to your teeth as well? Getting a routine dental checkup is just as important as maintaining a positive lifestyle. In this blog, we will look at what happens during a dental visit and the benefits of such.

What happens during a visit to the dental office?

Your dentist or dental hygienist will do a number of things besides looking for signs of tooth decay when you visit them for a checkup appointment. The dentist will also look at the health of your gums and examine your mouth to ensure there are no indications of vitamin deficiencies, diabetes, or cancer. Your dentist may also examine your face, saliva, bite, and movement of your jaw to ensure everything is going well. The last step would involve teeth cleaning before you are given a few pointers to maintain optimum oral health.

What are the benefits of regular dental health checkups?

There are plenty of benefits from a regular oral health checkup. Here are a few:

  • Tooth loss prevention: Tooth loss is a serious issue, and it needs to be prevented before there’s no turning back. Tooth loss happens when there’s plaque buildup, and your regular oral health routine isn’t doing the necessary job to prevent its accumulation in the mouth. 
  • Cavity prevention: You can also prevent any onset of cavities by visiting a dentist regularly.
  • Improve your general health:A number of health concerns tend to start via your mouth. A visit to the dentist will catch early signs of dental diseases and allow you to get the necessary treatment before it gets worse. 

The bottom line is, a regular dental health checkup doesn’t just rule out possibilities of complications but can also save you hundreds and thousands of dollars by ensuring you don’t end up incurring out-of-pocket expenses at random.
