Teddington patients: why you should never skip a dentist appointment

In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it's easy to overlook your routine dental appointments. However, neglecting these important biannual appointments can have serious long-term consequences for your oral health. Church Road Dental Care are proud to play a pivotal role in maintaining teeth and gums for residents in Teddington and the surrounding areas.


Here it is, straight from our dentist’s mouth (pardon the pun!), why you shouldn’t skip your biannual dental check-ups.


Early detection of dental problems


A primary reason to not skip your biannual dental visits is to catch issues early. Many dental problems, such as cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer, may not exhibit noticeable symptoms in their initial stages. X-rays may also be taken to provide more in-depth visuals of the condition so you can receive the correct treatment, promptly. Early intervention not only alleviates, and sometimes even prevents, discomfort but can also save you from the need for extensive and costly treatments later on.


Regular professional cleaning


Despite regular brushing and flossing, plaque and tartar can accumulate on your teeth over time increasing your risk of gum disease and bone loss around your teeth. So as part of your biannual visits we advise a thorough but gentle clean of your teeth by one of our caring hygienists. Advice will also be given to help improve your oral hygiene, preventing gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath.


Advice on lifestyle changes to promote oral health


During your biannual visit to Church Road Dental Care, your Teddington dentist may offer advice on correct brushing and flossing techniques and the importance of a balanced diet for healthy teeth. They will also discuss habits to avoid, such as smoking or excessive sugar consumption.


Saving money on dental care


Regular dental visits help to detect possible issues early on. This will mean that you could potentially save money on treatments further down the line. Preventative treatments such as fluoride application or dental sealants are relatively inexpensive compared to treatments for advanced dental problems. 


As you can see, routine appointments with our Church Road team are valuable and shouldn’t be overlooked. Prioritise them so you can safeguard your smile, avoid unnecessary discomfort, and save time and money in the long run. Contact our Teddington dental practice if you would like to register as a patient.
