The Importance of DENTAL Check-Up – Ms Mary Rose M. Infante

Last October 25, 2016, the Kidsland Pre-school division had given a privilege to conduct a dental check-up. This program is actually conducted annually. Before doing this activity, the class teachers were asked to measure the height and weight of the students. The dentist on that day came so early to ensure that all of the students in Kidsland will be given a proper check-up. Some of the students looked so nervous and frighten because they saw some apparatus on her table. They were also assisted by the assistant teachers. Having our teeth cleaned regularly offers many benefits not only to your appearance, but your health as well. Some of these benefits include:

Prevention of gum disease.

The build-up of plaque can re­sult in gum disease. Plaque also contains bacteria which can cause inflammation and irritate gums.

Maintain good health.

Studies in recent years have linked strokes and heart at­tacks to gum disease. Although the correlation between the two isn’t clear, regular teeth clean­ing could potentially lessen your risk of having a stroke or devel­oping heart disease.

Enjoy a whiter, brighter smile.

Having your teeth cleaned helps remove stains caused by cof­fee, tea, wine and other prod­ucts. Some medications can also cause teeth to become dis­colored

Prevent halitosis (bad breath).

No one wants bad breath, which can be caused by gum disease, food lodged in hard-to-reach ar­eas, or poor oral hygiene. Reg­ular teeth cleaning and dental check-ups are the most effective way to ensure you enjoy good oral hygiene.

Keep your teeth.

No one wants to lose their teeth, but poor oral hygiene can result in advanced gum disease, which means supporting bone can be destroyed as plaque moves fur­ther into the roots of the teeth. Have your teeth cleaned regu­larly, and brush/floss thor­oughly between cleanings.
