Why is it important to see the dentist?

We recommend everyone to see a dentist twice a year for regular preventive care visits. These appointments allow Dr. Berera to monitor your oral health and screen for any developing conditions that can compromise the health of your teeth.

The primary aim of routine dental exams is to help prevent problems that may occur later on. Your dentist can help detect areas that could possibly lead to severe complications in the future. For the most part, regular check-ups help maintain a healthy smile by maintaining your oral health.

A typical routine check-up appointment includes:

  • Clinical examination
  • Preventive teeth cleanings
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Necessary dental X-rays.

By having your check-ups performed on a routine basis, you can prevent problems such as:

  • Gum disease
  • Untreated decay forming in teeth or under old dental work
  • Broken fillings
  • Cracks in teeth.

 

Dr. Berera examines the health of each one of your teeth, as well as your other oral tissues, to ensure there are no existing or early forms of disease that can quickly progress into severe problems later on. Not only does this minimise your treatment needs, but it also helps reduce your investment in dental treatment, by cleaning your teeth and correcting problems when they are smaller while the treatments are less invasive.

 

How Often Should You Get a Dental Check-Up?

We recommend that all patients see a dentist at least twice a year for routine check-ups. This is the ideal frequency for removing tartar deposits from the teeth, conducting screenings, and intercepting any developing cavities since the last visit. If it’s been longer than 6 months since your last appointment, we invite you to visit our dental office so that Dr.Berera can help you once again gain control over your oral health.

Going back to the dentist for the first time can be a little unnerving. That’s why we strive to make our patients feel as comfortable as possible and listen to your individual needs throughout the entire visit. From working around your busy schedule to discussing treatment options with you, Dr. Berera is focused on individual, personalised care that exceeds your expectations.
