Preventive medical check-up

The dental check-up, also known as a dental check-up or prophylactic examination, is an important measure for maintaining oral health and preventing tooth and gum disease.

Here is some important information about the dental check-up:

Purpose: The dental check-up has several important objectives, including

  • Early detection of dental and gum disease such as tooth decay, gingivitis or periodontitis.
  • Checking the condition of fillings, crowns, bridges and other restorative or prosthetic work.
  • Assessing the patient’s oral hygiene practices and providing guidance on how to improve oral health.
  • Advice on dental hygiene habits, diet and other aspects of oral health.

Procedure: During a dental check-up, the dentist performs a thorough examination of the mouth. This includes inspecting the teeth, gums, tongue, cheeks, palate and other oral tissues for signs of problems. In addition, x-rays may be taken to identify hidden problems and a professional dental cleaning may be performed if agreed with the patient.

Frequency: The frequency of dental check-ups varies depending on the patient’s individual needs and oral health. Generally, it is recommended to have a check-up every six – 12 months, although patients with a higher risk of dental problems or certain medical conditions may require more frequent check-ups.
