4 Of The Many benefits To Scheduling a Regular Dental Checkup Every Year.
We always seem to be so busy nowadays in Singapore and we never make time to just stop for a moment and think about ourselves and think about our health. We are so caught up in our careers and getting to the top of the ladder that we stop taking care of ourselves and this applies especially to oral hygiene. All day in the office or while out on the road, we are working at our desks and drinking coffee with excessive amounts of sugar and this has a detrimental effect on the health of our teeth and gums.
A dental check up should be on the top of everyone’s to do list but it seldom is. We keep putting it off until it is too late and we then get a cavity, or even worse, a tooth has to be removed. If we had just taken the time to visit a Singapore dental clinic, then we would still have all our teeth. There are a number of benefits to be had from scheduling and attending your dentist at least once a year and here are just some of them.
- Adults in Singapore lose teeth in their older years due to gum disease and these occur due to infections and inflammation due to poor dental hygiene and not going to your dentist for a regular cleaning. Your gums will get inflamed due to plaque build up and the only way to remove this plaque is to let your dentist scrape it off for you.
- Everyone wants to have a shiny, bright smile and to get that kind of movie star smile, you need to go see your dentist for a clean and a polish. Stains are caused on our teeth by our regular drinking of coffee, drinking red wine, enjoying a curry or drinking down our favourite fizzy drink. If you want a smile that is going to catch people’s eyes, then you need your dentist for that.
- Going to the dentist can actually help to save your life. Oral cancer is a very real thing and it affects a number of Singaporeans every year. A visit to the dentist means that as well as taking care of your teeth, your dentist is also looking for the early signs of oral cancers. Early detection is the key to successful treatment.
- Just like the car that you drive every day on Singaporean roads, you get it serviced regularly and this stops your vehicle breaking down which would cost you more to fix. The same applies to your teeth. If you go for your regular dental checkups, then you avoid the big issues with your teeth, which would cost you a lot more to repair if you didn’t. It just makes good financial sense.
If you are a parent or you have some kind of influence in any kid’s life, then attending the dentist for regular checks is giving the right message to the younger generation. There is an unjustified fear of dentists by young people and it is your job to show that it just isn’t true.
