So what IS the importance of the dental cleaning and dental exams? While not only beneficial for appearance’s sake, there are numerous health benefits that are derived from regular dental exams of your teeth.

First, maintaining regular dental exams will ensure that any potential dental issues are quickly identified and treated before they can turn into painful and highly expensive medicals issues that may require surgery or permanent treatment options.

The importance of regular dental exams ranges from preventing fatal conditions to maintaining healthy gums and teeth so they are working at their optimal level. On one end of the scale, regular dental visits will clear the patient of any potential oral cancers which are highly curable if caught early on. On a lesser scale, but perhaps far more prevalent, is the prevention of gum disease, which is an infection of the gum tissue and the bone. This also applies to cavities and broken fillings which, if left untreated, can result in root canals, gum surgery and the removal of teeth.

On a superficial level, regular exams prevent the build up of plaque while cleaning the teeth and gums to a healthy level, thereby reducing the onset of bad breath. Statistics show that 85% of people with persistent bad breath can attribute it to a dental problem which frequently reflects on a low dental appointment attendance.

So how regularly should you go for these exams with your dentist? A good rule of thumb is once every six months – providing that you have not experienced any sensitivity, pain or discomfort anywhere in your mouth.

However, there are certain conditions that require more frequent visits to the dentist, including periodontal and gum disease, poor oral hygiene habits, high use of tobacco and alcohol, pregnancy, diabetes and certain medical conditions. These conditions leave the patient with a higher risk of gum disease, oral cancer and cavities – so patients who fall into any of these particular categories should visit their dentist on a more regular basis.
