4 Urgent Reasons Why You Should Visit Your Dentist Regularly
Book an Appointment

Going for regular dental checkups is one of the best investments you can make for your oral health. Doing so allows you to keep your teeth and gums in great shape. Your dentist can detect existing and potential issues early. Moreover, you can reduce unnecessary, often costly, dental work.

A preventive approach is much better than rushing to the dental clinic only in times of emergency. By committing to regular dental check-ups, you get to invest in ensuring optimal oral health and hygiene for you and your family.

Here are the most urgent reasons why you need to make regular dental appointments, whether with our dental clinic QVC Dental or other dental clinics near you:

  1. Reduced risk of plaque, calculus and cavities
  2. Early detection in case of oral cancer
  3. Prevention of gum disease
  4. Teeth-harming habits kept in check

Now let’s talk about them one by one in more detail!



1. Plaque/Calculus and Cavities

No matter if you brush daily or floss, there are still going to be areas of the mouth where your toothbrush cannot reach.  It leads to the building of plaque, this plaque eventually turns into calculus, which is hard to get rid of without the help of your friendly professional Dentists or Hygienists.

If you do not go for your regular oral check-ups, the calculus can attack your teeth and can create holes in them, which are also called cavities. You can rarely detect signs of cavities as they form.  Once the tooth is decayed, it can lead to severe problems and even major dental anxieties. It can be avoided with regular hygiene appointments, which can be way more affordable than getting a filling.


2. Oral Cancer Detection and Treatment

Oral cancer is hazardous, and when not diagnosed on time can quickly progress and become life-threatening. Fortunately, cancer which is diagnosed in its early stage can be easily countered, thanks to dentists.  Our dentists at QVC Dental are highly trained to recognize the symptoms of the disease and other oral abnormalities.

Diagnosis of oral cancers in their early stages, plays a crucial role in successfully treating it. If you visit our dentists at QVC Dental at least twice a year, you can prevent yourself from oral diseases.


3. Gum Disease

Plaque, calculus,  and certain dietary habits not only can cause tooth decay but may lead to gum disease.  Calculus  build-up also causes several oral infections like gingivitis, which can recede the gum supporting your tooth/teeth. 



Once this stage reaches, it is known to be called gum disease, and to counter it dentists or specialists may have to do surgery, deep cleaning or provide medication to the affected areas. To avoid all this, our dentists or hygienists at QVC Dental can perform regular hygiene appointments to maintain your teeth and gums, which will greatly help catch and treat gingivitis before the condition worsens.


4. Keeping Bad Habits in Check

There are many bad habits which can cause oral health issues. These habits can include drinking coffee and red wine, chewing ice, biting your nails, grinding your teeth, eating sweets, smoking and many more. 

By visiting our clinic regularly, our dentists will be able to inform you about specific bad habits. To prevent any further damages, you can alter or change your lifestyle, which will allow you to achieve optimal oral health.
