Most people don’t realize the importance of the 6 month dental check up. Our bodies require regular maintenance, and this is no different where our teeth and gums are concerned. It is very important to keep your teeth and gums healthy. The recommended time frame between dental visits is usually 6 months.
What happens at your dental visit?
At the dental check up your dental professional will check all the teeth. X-rays might be taken to determine if there are cavities between your teeth. The exam includes a check for plaque and tartar on your teeth. Plaque is a clear, sticky layer of bacteria. If it is not removed, it can harden and become tartar. It is important to note that you cannot remove tartar with brushing and flossing. If plaque and tartar build up on your teeth, they can cause oral diseases.
Your teeth will also be cleaned at your visit. Brushing and flossing help clean the plaque from your teeth, but you can't remove tartar at home. During the cleaning, your dental professional will use special tools to remove tartar. This is called scaling, after your teeth are scaled, they may be polished. In most cases, a gritty paste is used for this. It helps to remove any surface stains on your teeth.
Healthy habits start early, and it is recommended that children also have regular dental check ups. Children’s teeth are constantly changing as they grow. Teeth are lost and Adult teeth replace these. To prevent cavities and problems arising it is recommended that children attend regularly.
