Maintaining healthy teeth is now made easy with our comprehensive general dental services. We offer regular hygiene appointments, periodontal care, restorative treatment, and other general dentistry services to achieve and maintain the optimal dental health of our patients.
A general dental checkup is a preventive measure that most people should undergo at least once a year. The checkup generally includes a cleaning, an examination of the teeth and gums, and x-rays, if necessary. It allows the dentist to catch any potential problems early on and address them before they become more serious.
There are a variety of reasons why we need general dental checkups. One reason is that regular dental checkups can help to prevent tooth decay and other oral health problems. By identifying and treating problems early, we can often avoid more serious and expensive problems in the future. For example, if cavities are caught and treated early, they may not require any further treatment or may only require a simple filling.
The dental checkup procedure typically begins with a review of the patient's medical history. This is followed by a review of the patient's dental history. X-rays are then typically taken to help the dentist assess the patient's dental health. The dentist will then examine the teeth and gums for signs of decay or infection. The dentist may also perform a tooth cleaning during the checkup.
If you ignore your dental checkup, you are at an increased risk for developing cavities and gum disease. Gum disease can lead to tooth loss, and cavities can cause pain and infection. Regular dental checkups and cleanings can help prevent these problems.
A dental checkup's typical price starts from 150AED. However, many dental insurance plans cover a significant portion of the checkup cost, so be sure to check with your provider. The checkup usually includes a cleaning, examination, and X-rays.
