Regular dental check ups are the best way to make sure your family's gums and teeth stay healthy. The check up allows your family dentist to diagnose any problems, and to take preventive action to stop problems before they develop.

A dentist is trained to look for anything unusual in your mouth, throat and neck, including the oral manifestations of diseases, oral cancer, infections, the early signs of gum disease, eroded fillings and dental decay.A dentist understands the treatment alternatives available to you, and can help you make informed decisions about your dental care. But you have a role to play too in preventing many of the common dental problems associated with growing older.Brush and floss your teeth properly, visit your dentist regularly for a professional cleaning, check up and necessary treatment. Also, don't forget to update your dentist on your medical history, including any new medication you, or other members of your family, are taking.
