Unless you have gone to school to become a dentist, there are certain issues that you are not qualified to diagnose—let alone treat. And this isn’t even to mention the equipment that is needed!
During routine dental checkups, your dentist is able to take a look at your teeth, gums, cheeks, tongue and even your jaw to ensure your oral health, and diagnose any issues that may be occurring. From there, a treatment plan can be put in place.
An extremely important aspect of regular dental checkups is an x-ray. It is by x-raying a patient’s mouth that a dentist is able to better see decay, cracks and other oral health problems that are difficult or even impossible to see with the naked eye.
It is also during regular dental checkups that your dentist is able to examine your mouth to recognize tooth decay, cavities, gum disease and other oral health problems that are occurring, so they can be treated. Without regular visits, these oral health issues go unchecked, and develop further. What may have been a simple dental filling may become a root canal treatment, or even an extraction!
Make sure to regularly set appointments for dental checkups so your dentist can take a closer look at your mouth, and diagnose and treat any oral health issues that have arisen since your last visit.

More About Cleanings and Check-Ups
In order to keep your teeth, gums and mouth overall healthy, regular dental cleanings and dental checkups are not only helpful—but necessary. While you can do a lot for the maintenance of your oral health at home, there are certain services that require professional care. This is why it’s extremely important to make sure that you are regularly visiting the dentist for dental cleanings and dental checkups.
Choose The Right Dentist for You and Your Family
Because you will be seeing your dentist at least twice a year—if not more—it’s important to choose the right dentist for both your family and you. There are a few different factors that you’ll want to consider when choosing the right dentist.
If you have a spouse and/or kids, you may want to consider a family dentist. They will be able to take care of every member of your family—including both children and adults. You’ll also want to consider cost and insurance. See if a specific dentist is in your network. Finally, you’ll want to consider how much you (and your family) like your dentist. There are plenty of quality dentists that also are easy to work with, and have a pleasant demeanor. Whomever you choose, just make sure you have an appointment in the books with your dentist for at least six months from now—if not sooner.
