WHY AVOIDING THE DENTIST CREATES BIGGER PROBLEMS

February 21, 2019
Preventive Dentistry

People stay away from the dentist for a number of reasons – anxiety, finances and busy family schedules are just a few. Moving to the area and finding a dentist in Dee Why can also delay arranging your booking.

Avoiding the surgery for your routine check-up and clean can undermine your intentions.

Avoiding Your Dental Exam

A regular check-up is about so much more than a quick chat with your dentist. We perform a full evaluation of teeth, gums, and the jaw system to ensure that everything is working correctly and no visual signs of oral conditions have developed since your last visit.

Dr Min or Dr Laura will compare their findings with your previous visits so they can detect even subtle changes early.

Avoiding Your Scale and Polish

If you brush and floss your teeth, as directed, you may wonder why a regular clean is still necessary. While home hygiene is an essential part of your oral health, the toothbrush and floss cannot remove everything from teeth.

Regular dental cleanings employ the skills and knowledge of our oral therapist and dental hygienists who use precision instruments to remove tartar from those tiny places your brush cannot.

Even if you require a deep cleaning to address periodontal disease, our hygiene team will make you comfortable throughout your procedure.

Avoiding X-Rays

Enamel is the hardest substance in the body, making it a great way to hide oral conditions like decay. What may look like a small discolouration to the eye could be advanced decay hiding beneath the enamel.

The only way to know for sure is to use diagnostic x-rays to diagnose dental decay in the early stages when it is usually less costly and complicated to treat.

If you’ve been avoiding the surgery, but it is time to visit a dentist in Dee Why, contact Dental Design and let us help you get back on track with a healthy smile.
