When Should You Visit a Dentist for a Checkup?

Posted on 2/6/2023 by Evan
When Should You Visit a Dentist for a Checkup?Most people don't visit the dentist as often as they should. The average person only goes to the dentist twice a year! It is a problem because minor problems can turn into big ones if you don't visit the dentist regularly. This post will discuss when to visit the dentist for a checkup.]]]


Cavities are one of the common oral problems that dentists see. A cavity is a hole in your tooth that can be caused by decay. Some reasons for cavities include not brushing your teeth, not flossing, and eating sugary foods. If you have a cavity, you may need a filling. Fillings fill the hole in your tooth and prevent further decay. The dentist will first numb the area around the tooth, then drill out the decay. Finally, they will place the filling in your tooth.

Sensitive Teeth

Sensitivity occurs for various reasons, like worn-out tooth enamel exposing the inner layers of your teeth, gum recession that exposes the tooth roots, cavities or tooth decay, broken or chipped teeth, and grinding or clenching your teeth can also lead to sensitivity. You might experience sharp pain while consuming hot or cold drinks and foods. If you have sensitive teeth, visit your dentist to find out the underlying cause of the problem and get it treated accordingly.

Bad Breath

It might be a sign of gum disease if you often experience bad breath, also called halitosis. Plague and tartar buildup around your gum line causes irritation and inflammation of the gums. This condition is known as gingivitis. If not treated on time, it will progress to periodontitis, a severe gum disease that damages the soft tissue and bone supporting your teeth.
