If you could be anywhere right now where would it be? The movies… The beach… The dentist…
Okay, I doubt many of you actually said the dentist. It’s okay at Subiaco Dental Practice we aren’t easily offended. But did you know that there is a reason Subiaco Dental Practice like to see you for a dental check-up?
Simply, it’s because many dental diseases are preventable and when detected early it leads to better outcomes and results for you! But it is also because many dental diseases in their early stage are painless.
At Subiaco Dental Practice when you come in for your dental check- up, we:
- Check your teeth for decay (holes), cracks or breakages
- Assess the health of your gum and bone
- Check your whole mouth for other potential issues, such as screening for oral cancers
- Check your face, lips and neck area for any abnormalities
- Clean around your teeth and gums, helping to keep the gum and bone healthy
By coming to see our friendly Subiaco Dental Practice dentist, we can identify changes early, helping to reduce your risk of needing more complex dental work. Not to mention winding up with a troublesome toothache. Plus, it can actually save you time and money later on!
Your dentist will be able to advise you how often you should ideally come in for check-up, based on your risk factors and dental history. As sometimes despite your best effort things within your mouth can still change.
But what if you do notice changes?
A tooth which has suddenly become sensitive to cold drinks? A mouth ulcer which has not gone away? Or you bit down onto a popcorn kernel at the movies and now you have a toothache?
Whatever the case may be these changes may be a sign that something may not be quite right. So, it may be worthwhile getting them checked. Like they say, better safe than sorry!
So, if you have been thinking about getting a dental check-up, allow us to help you and give our friendly team at Subiaco Dental Practice a call on (08) 9388 8555 to arrange an appointment on a day and time which suits you best.
