So many patients don’t think they need to come in to see us here at the Doha family dentist practice of Doha Dental because their diet is blameless and their brushing/flossing habits are perfect. Well, not only do immaculate hygiene habits not guarantee you won’t suffer from tooth decay or periodontal disease, there are also things that can go wrong inside your mouth that really don’t have anything to do with brushing, flossing and rinsing — things that are often only visible to a well-trained eye. What are we talking about? Read on and find out.
It’s a sad fact of life that even the most punctilious brushers and flossers among us can still end up with cavities and gingivitis. While sometimes these issues are pretty obvious to the sufferer (it hurts when you bite down, or your gums are swollen and bleeding, for example), it’s not uncommon for problems to be detectable only by x-ray or by our Doha family dentist hard-earned expertise. Although you could choose to wait until oral health issues do become obvious to you, we think you’ll agree that your better off having the oral heath pros here at Doha Dental find and remedy problems as soon as possible. But, as we said above, there’s more to diseases of the mouth than tooth decay and sick gums. Other pathologies include malocclusions (teeth that aren’t lined up properly), cysts and abscesses, and even malignant tumors — all of which your dentist will be on the lookout for when you come in for an exam.
Still not convinced you should schedule that comprehensive dental exam as soon as possible? Maybe a more aesthetically-minded appeal will do the trick. In addition to checking you out for potentially serious oral health problems, we here at the Doha family dentist practice of Doha Dental also do lots of teeth cleanings and bleachings. In other words, we’ll not only make sure your teeth are strong and healthy, we’ll also make sure you walk out of our office with a smile that’s brighter than when you walked in.
