In order to ensure you teeth stays beautiful, but more importantly healthy, it is advisable to have your teeth checked at least twice per year, to detect (starting) problems and to prevent these from getting any bigger. During the dental check up, your dentist will check for signs of progressive deterioration in your gums or teeth compared to previous visits and will advise you on whether any appointments need to be scheduled for further treatment.
What can you expect during a dental check up?
During the dental check up, checks are performed proactively to detect and report any problems with your oral health. Healthy teeth starts with overall oral health, so the dentists check the state of your gums, and will look for small holes appearing in your teeth and molars.
It is of course possible to see some small holes with the naked eye, but periodically it is necessary to take new x-rays to determine if there are any holes under the gumline or between your teeth. This assists us to detect holes between your teeth and molars, on hard to see places. We follow the Dutch X-ray protocol that prescribes the most appropriate frequency for taking X-ray photos.
Beautiful teeth ensures a radiant smile. It starts with proper cleaning of your teeth. Good oral health prevents you from getting holes and developing inflammation. This is why, at Tandarts Jordaan, we believe it is important to advise you on the correct cleaning of your teeth at home. In addition, you are advised to make an appointment with the dental hygienist if we detect the presence of tartar.
