How often should you visit the dentist and why?

Regular dental check-ups are a cornerstone of maintaining good oral health. At Stella Maris Dental, we understand the importance of these visits and are committed to providing comprehensive care.

Read on to explore the recommended frequency of dental appointments and the unique services offered at our clinic, emphasising why these visits are vital for your dental health.

How often should you visit the dentist?

The standard recommendation is to visit your dentist every six months. However, individual needs can vary. Some patients, especially those with a higher risk of dental diseases, may need more frequent visits. At Stella Maris Dental, we personalise the frequency of your visits based on a thorough assessment of your oral health needs.

Why are regular dental visits important?

Early Detection of Problems: Regular visits allow for the early detection of dental issues, which is key to effective and less invasive treatment.

Preventive Care: Our comprehensive examinations and preventive measures are designed to keep serious dental issues at bay.

Professional Advice: Regular appointments provide an opportunity for personalised advice and guidance on maintaining your oral health.

Maintaining Dental Work: If you have existing dental work, regular check-ups are crucial to ensure everything remains in top condition.

Overall Health Benefits: Good oral health contributes to your overall well-being. Issues like gum disease can be linked to systemic health problems.

Stella Maris Dental’s Oral Health Examination

Our Oral Health Examination is a comprehensive assessment that forms the foundation of our care. Here’s what it includes:

Comprehensive Assessment: We thoroughly examine your soft tissues, teeth, and oral structures to detect any issues in their earliest stages.

Oral Cancer Screening: We conduct screenings for oral cancer to ensure early detection and timely intervention, crucial for successful treatment outcomes.

X-rays When Necessary: Our state-of-the-art X-ray technology aids in providing a more detailed evaluation of your oral health, ensuring nothing is missed.

Personalised Preventive Measures and Treatment Options: Based on our findings, we offer personalised preventive care and treatment plans, ensuring you receive care that’s specifically tailored to your needs.

Preventive Dentistry at Stella Maris Dental

We believe in the power of prevention. Our preventive dentistry services are designed to minimise the need for extensive treatments in the future, helping you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile for years to come. Our preventive care includes

  • Guidance on diet choices to prevent dental decay, emphasising the importance of nutrition in maintaining oral health.
  • Expert advice on oral hygiene practices tailored to your needs, helping you maintain dental health and stabilise any existing gum disease.
  • Fissure Sealants as an option for patients. This protective barrier is applied to vulnerable tooth surfaces to prevent the development of decay.

Visiting the dentist every six months is a general guideline, but at Stella Maris Dental, we understand that every patient is unique. We tailor our recommendations based on a thorough assessment of your individual needs. Regular dental visits are an integral part of not just maintaining a beautiful smile but also ensuring your overall health is well looked after.
