Dental Checkup

Dental Checkup treatments abroad

It is recommended by most dental health professionals that patients receive dental checkups about twice per year, more often if the patient suffers from gum disease, has family members with a history of poor oral health, or after serious illness or injury. The exam usually involves treatment by both a dental hygienist and a dentist, and may involve a comprehensive exam, which includes the entire mouth, neck, and other tissues involved in oral health. A checkup begins with the dental hygienist checking the patient's medical history and examining the gum tissue.

The hygienist will note any possible dental health problems, and report them to the dentist to make a diagnosis. After the cleaning, the dentist will examine the patient and make recommendations for improving oral health. X-rays may bthe exam to allow the dentist to see any possible problems before they cause pain or more damage.

Generally, dentists recommend getting a checkup every 6 months, however high risk patients should go more often, while patients with teeth which are in good condition, may not require as many visits in comparison.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Indian Dental Associations recommends getting at least one dental checkup every year. Patients with chronic conditions that affect their dental health, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, should get check-ups and cleanings more often.

Dental check-ups allow a professional to monitor your dental health and detect potential problems before they progress. If caught early, most dental health problems can be easily treated before they cause significant damage. If you wait until you notice a problem or feel pain, it may be too late for an easy intervention. Left untreated, many problems could cause you to lose teeth.

During the checkup, the dentist will examine each of your teeth, your gums, and other soft tissues of your mouth checking for signs of infection, decay, or injury. They will go over any concerns you have and ask you about your eating and oral hygiene habits. The dentist can then recommend treatments such as tooth filling, periodontal surgery, or orthodontic treatment if necessary. If you have a teeth cleaning scheduled during the same appointment, the cleaning may be done after the examination.

Many patients choose to travel abroad for dental care because of the high costs of dentists at home or because their national health care scheme does not provide dental care. In these cases, patients sometimes find it is less expensive to fly to a nearby country for dental care and pay out of pocket. Other patients take a yearly vacation to another country where dental care is cheaper and schedule their dental appointments for the same time. Dentists abroad often have the same or better qualifications than those in the US and UK. We recommend choosing an accredited dental professional who is experienced and caters to international patients.

The Dental Checkup takes 15 to 30 minutes. It is recommended to have a checkup every 6 months.,
