The Importance of Regular Dental Appointments

AURORA, Ontario - March 30, 2021 - PRLog -- You might already know how important oral health is but are you aware that your oral health can affect your overall health as well? It is extra important for adults to attend regular dental appointments every four to six months in order to maintain healthy gums and teeth.

Even if you are diligent about brushing and flossing twice a day, this does not exempt you from having regular dental visits for check-ups and maintenance. This is due to plaque being able to build up in places where your toothbrush and floss do not reach. Trained professionals such as dentists and hygienists are able to use specially designed tools in order to remove this plaque that gets built up over time that your toothbrush can't remove.

It's time for your dental exam

Do you know what to expect for your regular dental exam? On one of your visits per year, you will be getting x-rays done in order to check for cavities and other dental issues that are not easily seen otherwise. There are usually 3 x-rays that are taken at this time. They are done in portions so that all your teeth are accurately show. This includes two bite-wing x-rays, taken on each side of the mouth, and a panoramic x-ray. When you get a panoramic x-ray, this is taking a two-dimensional x-ray of your whole mouth at once, your jaw, and all surrounding tissues.
