What is considered regular?
When considering the definition of the word ‘regular’ there are a variety of situations which suggest a daily or weekly process. Luckily, when it comes to your oral health the regular cleans at home are to be daily, but the regular dental check-ups are generally within the 6 to 12 month bracket, leaving time to enjoy your life in between. A check-up once or twice a year written down on paper may not seem a lot, but for some this simple check-up appointment can often be delayed or eliminated altogether. Whilst it may seem insignificant due to lack of noticeable dental pain or changes, these dental check-ups along with mouth cancer screening Guildford can be a huge factor when it comes to your overall oral health. After all, preventive dentistry works best when your dental team sees you for a visit.
Creating healthy habits
Whilst we all have good and bad habits we like to carry out on a day-to-day basis, booking in for our regular dental appointments is one habit we want to get firmly in place. These short periods of time, just a couple of times a year, allow our overall oral health to be monitored and efficiently improved when necessary through care both in and out of the dental practice. Our aim at our practice is to have you as comfortable as possible with your dental team, so that you are happy to approach us should you notice even the slightest change to your mouth and think you need a mouth cancer screening Guildford.
A small lump, lesion or ulcer may be simply that, but it can also be a sign of something more serious which is why we strive to work with you and ensure that you attend regular appointments with our dental team. This is one healthy habit we want to keep implementing, as an appointment can help diagnose and treat a potential problem early on.
When researching mouth cancer one of the most common benefits of treatment and recovery is the early diagnoses of the cancerous cells. This is why we highly recommend regular appointments for mouth cancer screening Guildford. These screening appointments combined with your regular dental check-ups allow us all to monitor and effectively spot any changes within the mouth, teeth and gums which in turn helps diagnose potential problems early on. This early detection then, in most cases, leads on to less invasive treatments and procedures eliminating the vast majority of the infections or cancerous cells before they become far more extensive.
Now we understand that for some, a visit to the dental practice can be rather daunting and something they would rather not do. However, the benefits of regular visits are so vast that we at Farnham Road Dental Practice consistently strive to work with our patients to ensure they are comfortable enough through every visit and feel able to attend regular appointments with us. If you are struggling with any aspect of your visit, let our team know and we will work on a plan with you to get you happily through the doors and ready for your appointment.
