5 Reasons To Visit A Dentist Every Six Months

March 24, 2020by aestheticsmiles

Visiting dentists can be harrowing for many people as they are afraid; many children and adults alike fear to visit the dentist and postpone the appointment until the situation is really bad, ensuring that the visit is a painful one to remember.

This is one of the main reasons why visiting the best dentist in Mumbai should not be reserved for years. Rather, it should be done every six months to ensure that your oral hygiene is on par with the normal standards and any procedure or cleaning should be considered regularly to avoid bigger dental problems at a later stage. Maintenance is the key to good oral hygiene and with frequent dental checkups, you can be sure that your teeth are getting the care that they deserve.

Why you should visit the dentist every six months?

Visiting the dentist every six months can prevent a host of problems. Some of them are briefly discussed below.

Plaque build-up

Plaque build-up is dangerous can be seen sticking around the gums and teeth. This white, sticky substance is full of harmful bacteria that promote tooth decay, discoloration, and gum problems and can get aggravated easily.

Tooth decay

This is one of the most common reasons why people visit dentists. Tooth decay should be checked when it is in the early stages as it is easy to fix. As it gets worse, the problems become bigger and often cannot be handled without escalating. Escalated tooth decay problems may require a root canal, crown and the worst is when the tooth has to be pulled out.

Cost-effective

Visiting the dentist frequently is a better option than having to pay high amounts to get procedures to fix something that could have been handled earlier with some care and in a cost-effective manner.

Confidence 

Regular checkups lead to white, bright and fresh-looking teeth that can boost your confidence and self-esteem with every smile. 

Great smile

When you have good teeth, you tend to smile more and this can have an impact on your professional and social life. People who smile are often considered more approachable and friendlier. 

What can you expect?

The visit can cover various aspects, which are pertinent for your case, and also the regular checkups that are performed on all patients.

  • Updating and reviewing the dental record
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Check for infections and cavities
  • Routine X-rays are common and do not harm the patient
  • Dentures, implants, night guard and root canals can be common during intermittent visits. 
  • Cleaning (oral prophylaxis) followed by teeth polishing, and general instructions for healthy teeth maintenance

Therefore, if you are one of those people who likes to postpone a dentist appointment due to fear and discomfort, it is prudent to re-evaluate that stance and start visiting the best dentist in Mumbai. It will ensure that you have the best oral health and hygiene that you require.

The queen of dentistry that other dentists could fix my implants with brexism.the professional service of the queen and staff are unbelievable after having 3 lots of failed implants but she used her talent to secure my best result.I'm from Australia and they couldn't help.but she shore could.a wealth of knowledge and experience at the fraction of the cost and goes beyond other implant dentists to fulfill your needs,whatever it takes.no pain as she blocks the mouth with injections.a caring dentist that I would be happy to recommend to anyone in the world..ceramic dental bridges I smashed due to brexism so I suggested a full upper bridge of polished titanium. Can't break those cellars.what a great job Dr Ritika and I can't say thank you so much to you.you are the queen of dental implants.take care as we are now friends for life.thank you

I’m from Australia & had been considering a smile makeover with dental crowns for some time. In the lead up to finally making a decision, I had a tooth break at the gum line & considering that my remaining teeth were worn down due to grinding, had fillings or went missing over the years - I had to act. After researching quite a number of dentists, I chose Dr Ritika Arora’s Aesthetic Smiles Dental Clinic mainly due to the reviews that I read which included local and overseas based patients. I have just recently finished the first stages of my smile makeover which included crowns for my existing teeth, 2 extractions & a number of implants for missing teeth. So far so good & I must say that I have been impressed with the way Dr Ritika has carried out the work as well as the work carried out by her consulting specialist doctors. I will be returning in about 5 months time after the first stage of the implants have had time to fuse with the bone. On return, the implants will be finished off with the final crown work. If you are considering any major aesthetic and or dental implant work - I would highly recommend this clinic for the quality of the work & competitiveness of their pricing. Thank you Dr Ritika Arora & I look forward to seeing you in a few months for the final result.

As someone who has struggled with juvenile periodontitis since the age of 16, I've worked with dentists around the world, and it was refreshing to find a dentist that I was able to work with directly from beginning to end. Dr. Arora was highly professional, thoughtful, and empathetic throughout the process. I had already started the process and had implants in place, and she helped me with six abutments and a total of 26 crowns. I reached out a few weeks before my trip, and she responded immediately. She took the time to talk through my history, and I could speak with her directly, not one of her assistants. She was very transparent and empathetic to my situation. She addressed my concerns about fees and followed through by not making it about money right when I showed up at her office. She paid attention to every detail and was thorough and getting the job done, and I would recommend her to anyone looking to get some solid work done, whether it be implants or cosmetic work.

Visited for dental implants Was looking for a good dental clinic in mumbai , found Dr Ritika online and was quite impressed with her credentials and the reviews on google I was struggling with a old broken bridge with missing teeth . On Consultation with Dr Ritika suggested me immediate dental implants. I had 3 teeth extracted and 3 dental implants place on the same day . The procedure was painless though there was some nagging discomfort for a few days later which is quite normal when you have so much dental work done in one sitting After 4 months the dental implants were restored with 4 ceramic crowns. I happy to be back to enjoying my food. Modern clinic , very professional , affordable and the overall experience at Aesthetic smiles dental clinic is good especially for nervous patients like me who tend to neglect dental treatment Highly recommended
