Why we need regular dental check-up?

It is important to go to a DENTIST regularly for dental check-up....... Even though without any problem or PAIN!! Why???

Basic examination tools

The answers are simple:

1. To have your teeth cleaned (or scaling).... to remove all the tartar that stick all around your teeth. (Blushing alone without scaling is not enough. You require professional help!!)

if not, you teeth is going to end up like these

The tartar that attach to your teeth surface will lead to gum inflammation (gingivitis) and later; gum recession  and bone resorption (periodontitis). Then finally... teeth become shaky (mobile) and drop out by themselves!! -too late!!

2. To have your teeth checked. Almost all tooth decay started without any symptom (eg. pain, sensitive). It takes about a year to grow significantly big. And treatment for SMALL DECAY is very simple -- SMALL FILLING which is cheaper, painless and lasting.
    However, when the tooth decay is too big (usually it gives you sensitive, pain or disturb your sleep), then the approach is different. The tooth might required large filling -- uhh!! (expensive, painful, required injection) or maybe root canal treatment followed by a crown (because the pulp is infected) or maybe extraction!!

Example of a very large tooth decay

So, go to your dentist 6 monthly or twice a year!!
