What are the top benefits of checkups with our dentist in Tower Hill?

From a young age, we are told that we should visit the dentist in Tower Hill at least every six months if we are to enjoy good oral health. But many adults are still unaware of just how these visits can benefit them or the huge significance of good dental health on physical health and mental and psychosocial well-being.

As a patient-centred practice, we at London City Dentists believe that patient education plays a vitally important role in encouraging patients to become more proactive about their oral health. Our friendly dentist in Tower Hill welcomes questions from patients during consultations and checkup appointments, so make sure to carry a list of questions with you so that you can have all your concerns addressed when you visit us.


Reasons to have our dentist in Tower Hill check your teeth and gums


One of the main reasons for a dental checkup is so that our dentist can treat poor oral health issues quickly. Leaving dental problems untreated, however minor, will only lead to bigger problems down the line.


Dental problems do not go away; they only get worse over time, and bigger problems are invariably more expensive to treat. It is also common for dental problems to be accompanied by pain and discomfort. Attending regular checkups is a sure way to minimise the occurrence of dental emergencies that leave patients traumatised and debilitated by pain.


Oral problems are not created overnight but are a result of problematic symptoms being left to progress. Our dentist is well-skilled and experienced to recognise the signs and symptoms that threaten the health of teeth and gums.


When visiting our dentist, you can find out whether you have been cleaning your teeth correctly at home. Many adults believe they know the best way to brush their teeth and are surprised to find out they have been doing it incorrectly all along. They have either been using the wrong type of toothbrush, brushing with too much force or failing to brush for a minimum of two minutes.


A happy and healthy smile is another beneficial product of regular dental checkups. Oral health issues such as tooth loss, gum recession, and discolouration can have a devastating impact on the appearance of a smile, but professional dental attention is a reliable way of preventing this.


Good oral hygiene is important not just for teeth and gums but also for physical health too. Bacteria responsible for dental diseases, such as periodontitis, have been linked to life-threatening illnesses. These harmful bacteria are known to attack the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, triggering strokes, heart attacks, pneumonia and inflammatory conditions.


A standard part of most dental checkups is the scale and polish. This procedure is mostly needed to remove plaque deposits from teeth and allows for a cleaner mouth.


Would you like the peace of mind that your teeth and gums are in good health? Maybe you need more advice on how to look after your dental health. At London City Dentists, we provide a wide range of dental care services so that you can have the confidence to proudly showcase a bright, happy and healthy smile. Give our reception desk a call; our team is ready to arrange an appointment at your convenience.
