Listening to the dentist counting teeth with the nurse repeating the numbers and tapping away on a keyboard, it must feel like a bit of waste of time for some and it would be if all we did was look.
But the value of a decent dental check up is often about looking back and more importantly looking forwards. A good dentist will look in the mouth and compare the current situation to the last check up looking for change.
Examples of good change are-
– Less plaque
– Better brushing
– Flossing etc
Bad change can be-
-Bad fillings wearing out
–Crowns cracking etc
In dentistry predicting the future is actually not that hard. Careful examination and an up to date dental examination history will give strong clues as to how long our teeth and our dentistry will last.
The positives for the patient are that
A good dentist can give you realistic predictions about the longevity of your teeth and dentistry for years ahead.
When your mentally prepared its easier to come to terms with issues predicted well in advance as you will have been given an idea of work to be carried out and a rough cost.
So even the worst problems have been dealt with in advance and managed correctly it is that preparedness which brings peace of mind.
Here at Ninety 2 Dental we understand how busy life gets and how hard it is to remember when your six monthly check is due. If you would like to book in advance we send you a reminder text the day before your appointment or if you don’t know your schedule in six months time we are happy to send you a reminder closer to the time.Back to Blog
