Why You Should Visit The Dentist
Why should I visit the dentist regularly, even if I don’t have any problems?
Well, in 2017 an Australian Dental Association survey showed that:
- 65% of people had not been to the dentist for more than 2 years, and
- 16% of people said they didn’t have the time to go to the dentist.
The role of the dentist is to help you maintain good oral health and detect any potential problems you may have with your teeth, gums and oral soft tissues – before they arise.
Tooth decay (caries) or gum disease can be present in your mouth – without you experiencing any symptoms at all.
If not detected early, this can lead to more problematic issues that can become very painful, spreading to other areas of the mouth and leading to larger, more uncomfortable and potentially expensive treatments.
Most people need to see the dentist every 6 months depending on their oral health.
Parklands Dental dentists and oral hygienists work closely together to help your maintain your best oral health – for life. We offer after-work hours appointments so you don’t have to take time off to visit.
It’s time to take charge of your oral health!
