The Benefits of a Regular Dental Check
Many people tend to skip their regular dental checks due to a fear of the dentist. However, at our Terenure dental practice our dentist is there to make you feel comfortable. They understand the fear you may have, and work with you to calm those nerves. This means you won’t be anxious for your routine check-ups. This is a good thing because there are many benefits to having a regular dental check.
Going for regular dental examinations is going to help prevent plaque, tartar, cavities, tooth decay, and other bad bacteria from forming or building on your teeth and gums.
Another benefit of a dental check is to prevent gum disease, or keep it at bay. Unfortunately, the early stages of gum disease rarely show any symptoms except to the trained eye of the dentist. The dentist will be able to tell you if your gums are doing well, and how to look after them better if they aren’t.
Staying up to date on your dental checks and visits will benefit not only your oral health but also your general health. When you get regular dental checks, you are much less likely to need any invasive treatments, too.

What to Expect From a Dental Examination
When you come to Dr. Casey for your dental check, you will be in great hands. To begin your check, the dentist will discuss with you any health problems you may have or any medications that you are on which may be affecting your oral health.
Once this conversation is done, the dentist will then start to evaluate your oral hygiene and the structure of your mouth. This means they will be looking at any tooth decay like cavities, checking to see if your bite is okay, and evaluating your risk for gum disease.
At the end of the visit, the dentist will discuss with you how to prevent problems from arising, and ways you can improve your oral health. It is at this point when you will talk about a follow-up visit, or your next cleaning.
