Oral Hygeine instructions:
Dental health is an important part of total well-being. If you do not care about your daily oral hygiene routine and about scheduling regular dental examinations, you're not doing all you can to stay in shape. You owe it to yourself to keep your teeth healthy and looking good for the rest of your life.
Keeping your teeth all your life is easier than you might expect. Nearly all dental disease, tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease is preventable.
"PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE".
During your visit Dr.Mary Ali will give you oral hygiene instructions explaining ways to prevent the onset, progress, and recurrence of dental diseases and conditions.Prevention includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays, Sealants and fluoride .
You need to visit the dentist twice a year to ensure that your teeth, gums, and mouths remain healthy and to prevent decay and other oral health problems like cavities , periodontal disease , cracked teeth, or broken fillings ,oral cancer .
During a dental examination, your dentist will check not only your teeth, but also the health of your entire mouth. Early detection of any dental disease can save you from a lot of pain in the future.
Digital radiography is a form of filmless x-ray imaging, where digital x-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. X-ray image captured is available as a digital file that can be presented for interpretation and saved as part of the patient’s medical record
Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing ,which is environmental friendly and Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
X-ray images are the most valuable tools a dentists can use to diagnose problems in the teeth and jaws, which are not visible on just visual exam like small cavities, Decay between the teeth, decay underneath a existing filling, tooth fractures, bone loss, tooth problems below the gum line, tumors, cancer, developmental abnormalities. With digital x-rays a lot of diseases can be diagnosed earlier saving us time, money and pain.
How often should dental x-rays be taken?
Dental x-rays are prescribed based on the needs of the individual. The dentist must weigh the benefits of disease detection against the risk of radiation exposure. There are guidelines published by the American Dental Association that are used to aid the dentist in prescribing the number, type, and frequency of dental radiographs. However, the dentist knows each patient's health history and susceptibility to oral disease and is in the best position to make this professional judgment in the interest of each patient. For example, a patient with a high decay rate will need x-rays more frequently than a patient without such disease. A full mouth series of dental x-rays is recommended for new patients. A full series is usually good for three to five years. Bite-wing x-rays (x-rays of top and bottom teeth biting together) are taken at recall (check-up) visits and are recommended once or twice a year to detect new dental problems.
