Regular check-ups are very important for maintaining oral health. Many oral conditions evolve without pain, especially in the initial phases; therefore, patients are not aware of their occurrence until they have already progressed significantly.
During the periodic check, the dentist can detect the incipient cavities that the patient has not observed or can detect initial signs of a gum disease.
Moreover, some existing dental work or restorations may require repairs or reconstructions. The physician will also assess the health of oral tissues. As a general rule, the earlier a disease is discovered, the easier it is to treat.
Periodic checks should be carried out at least twice a year.
