Most people require a preventive care and examination visit every 6, 8 or 12 months, depending on how healthy an individual’s teeth and gums are (the dentist will recommend which visit cycle is appropriate for you). Having your mouth checked regularly helps dental professionals diagnose any potential problems early (including oral cancers), allowing for reduced treatment needs (in some cases problems can be reversed). Gum disease left untreated can result in the loss of bone around teeth, eventually leading to abscess’ or tooth loss. Decay left untreated can result in large fillings or crowns, abscess’, root canal treatment, or even tooth loss. Preventive care visits, or ‘scale and cleans’, provide a treatment in which stain, plaque, and calcified plaque (known as tartar or calculus) are removed from teeth. This allows for a brighter looking smile, fresher breath, and healthier gums and teeth
