If you could be anywhere right now where would it be?
The movies… The beach… The dentist…
Okay, so I doubt many of you said the dentist.
It’s okay at, Urban Dental, we aren’t easily offended.
But did you know that there is a reason the team at, Urban Dental,
like to see you for a dental check-up?
Simply, it's because many dental diseases are preventable. And when they are detected early it leads to better outcomes and results for you!
But it is also because many dental diseases in their early stage are painless. So, without a dental check-up, you might not even know you have a problem.
At, Urban Dental, when you come in for your dental check-up or examination, there are a few things that we are going to be looking for and be doing… and it isn’t just about your teeth.
At your check-up we like to:
Check your teeth for decay (holes), cracks or breakages
Assess the health of your gum and bone
Check your whole mouth health for other potential issues, such as screening for oral cancers
Check your face, lips and neck area for any abnormalities
Clean around your teeth and gums, helping to keep the gum and bone healthy
By coming to see one of our friendly Urban Dental dentists, it can help to identify changes early, which helps to reduce your risk of needing more complex dental work later on. And not to mention winding up with a troublesome toothache. Plus, it can even save you time and money!
Now, in terms of how often you should have a dental check-up… well that depends, as everyone is different.
So, your dentist is the best person to advise you. They will base this recommendation on your risk factors, your previous dental history and your oral hygiene habits at home. So, be sure to ask them before you leave when you should next come back!
But what if you do notice changes?
Like a tooth which has suddenly become sensitive to cold drinks? A mouth ulcer which has not gone away? Or you bit down onto a popcorn kernel at the movies and now you have a toothache?
Whatever the case may be, these changes may be a sign that something may not be quite right. So, it can be worthwhile getting them checked. As like they say… better to be safe than sorry!
So, if you have been thinking about getting a dental check-up, or it has been a while since you last had one, allow us to help you and give our friendly team at, Urban Dental,
a call on 07 3839 9488 to arrange an appointment on a day and time which suits you best.
From all the team at, Urban Dental, thank you for reading
and we look forward to hearing from you soon!
