Importance of Dental Exams and Cleanings

Are you taking proper care of your oral health? Dental exams and cleanings are crucial to the overall health of your mouth. This blog will explain what these appointments entail and why they are important.

What are Dental Exams & Cleanings?

Dental Exams and cleanings are routine dental appointments that help maintain your oral health. A licensed hygienist performs cleanings using specialized tools and instruments to remove unwanted germs from your teeth.

The exam, performed by one of our doctors, is a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health. It includes checking for cavities, issues with restorations, and even oral cancer.

Why are Dental Exams & Cleanings needed?

You must schedule regular exams and cleanings to avoid catching oral health issues in their early stages when they are easier to treat. Over time, plaque can harden into tartar, leading to tooth decay and gum disease.

Small cavities may go unnoticed, eventually requiring more costly treatments. You can prevent these problems by scheduling regular exams and cleanings.

How Often Should You Have Your Teeth Cleaned?

The American Dental Association recommends that adults have a dental exam and cleaning every six months. These bi-annual appointments help prevent tooth decay and gum disease which allows our doctors to spot potential problems early on.

If it has been a while since your last exam and cleaning, there is always time to start taking a proactive approach to your oral health.

What Happens During Dental Exams & Cleanings?

During your appointment, our team will take x-rays to diagnose any underlying dental conditions. The hygienist will then clean your teeth, removing plaque and tartar and flossing and polishing your teeth to a high shine.

Your gums will be checked for signs of gingivitis or gum disease. Next, the doctor will perform a comprehensive exam, looking for cavities, loose or broken restorations, problematic teeth, and oral cancer. If any issues are found, the doctor will create a treatment plan to address them.

Don’t wait; Call Om Samaj Dental Hospital to schedule an appointment if you need a dental exam and cleaning. Take the first step towards a healthy mouth and smile today!

Why Do You Need A Dental Check Up Every Six Months?

The majority of people understand the importance of regular dental check up and seeing their dentist regularly. To maintain good health, taking good care of your teeth is one of the best things you can do.

Although some dentists suggest dental checkups once every year, it is a good idea to schedule an appointment every six months. It will ensure proper care of your oral health. 

5 Reasons Why You Need a Six-Month Checkup 

1. To Detect Dental Problems Early

Regular dental checkups can detect serious health problems before they become costly or painful. Various oral problems can be cared for before they become serious. Signs of tooth decay, gum diseases, and even oral cancer can be detected and treated accordingly.

2. Avoiding Bad Habits

Routine visits to the dentist can help you avoid bad oral habits before they negatively affect your oral health. Dentists are often able to spot the warning signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and even oral cancer before they become apparent to you. 

3. Avoiding Early Tooth Loss

Tooth decay and gum disease are serious conditions that can lead to the premature loss of teeth. Teeth are meant to last a lifetime, but if they are not cared for on time, they can cause discomfort, difficulty chewing, and other problems. Proper dental care will keep your teeth strong and healthy for as long as possible. 

4. Save Time and Money in The Long Run 

With good dental care, you can avoid many dental problems and costly treatments in the future. As we know “Prevention is better than Cure”, preventative measures such as timely dental check-ups can save money and time as such routines help to identify underlying problems before they become serious.

5. Avoid Tooth Decay 

Dentists can quickly diagnose tooth decay. Even if the tooth decay is small, it will only get worse. You can lose your teeth if such tooth decay is not treated early because smaller cavities will enlarge and eventually require root canal therapy, crowns, and even extractions. Tooth decay becomes severe and extensive treatments.

Final Words

It is important for your health and happiness to visit your dentist every six months for a routine exam and cleaning. Contact Om-Samaj Dental Hospital to schedule your next routine dental appointment or schedule a checkup.

के गुलियो खानेकुरा खायो भने मात्र दन्तसडन हुन्छ ?

मीठो भनेकै गुलियो हो भन्ने धेरै जनाको बुझाइ छ ।
हामीले खाएको खानेकुरा जुन दाँतमा अड्किन्छ, त्यसलाई किटाणुहरुले खाएपछि बनाएको अम्लले गर्दा बिस्तारै दाँतको कडा भाग सड्ने हुन्छ । खानेकुरामा पाइने कार्बोहाइड्रेट र किटाणुको अन्तरक्रियाले त्यो अम्ल उत्पादित हुन्छ । गुलियो खानेकुरामा कार्बोहाइड्रेटको मात्रा बढी हुन्छ । तेसैले चकलेट र मिठाइजस्ता खानेकुराले दन्तसडनमा बढी भूमिका खेल्छ भनिएको हो तर अरु खानेकुराहरु जस्तै भात, रोटी, आलु वा अरु तरकारीमा पनि कार्बोहाइडेट पाइन्छ र यी खानेकुराले पनि दन्तसडन गराउन भूमिका खेल्छ । तेसैले खाना खाइसकेपछि दाँत माझ्नु अति जरुरी हुन्छ ।

5 Tips for Maintaining Healthy Teeth and Gums 

Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is crucial for maintaining a good quality of life and preventing various health problems. 

According to the Mayo Clinic, good oral hygiene can help to reduce the risk of throat and oral cancers. In addition, research has shown that good oral hygiene can improve overall nutrition. 

Here are five tips for maintaining healthy teeth and gums: 

Tip #1: Brush Your Teeth Twice A Day for Healthy Teeth 

Brushing your teeth twice daily is essential to maintain healthy teeth and gums. To brush your teeth effectively, use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a small amount of toothpaste. 

Gently move the brush back and forth in short strokes, covering the fronts, backs, and tops of your teeth—brush for two minutes twice a day.

Tip #2: Floss Daily to Maintain Healthy Teeth

Flossing is essential in maintaining healthy teeth and gums, as it helps clean the spaces between your teeth that a toothbrush cannot reach. 

Flossing can help remove food particles and plaque between your teeth, freshen your breath, and prevent tooth loss. Doctors recommend flossing at least once a day, preferably before brushing. 

Tip #3: Use Mouthwash for Healthy Teeth 

Using mouthwash can be a practical addition to your oral hygiene routine. Mouthwash can help to kill bacteria that can cause tooth decay and gum disease, reduce gum inflammation, and freshen your breath.

Children under a certain age should not use some mouthwashes, so it is essential to read the label carefully before using a mouthwash. It is also important to avoid swallowing mouthwash, as it can contain alcohol and other potentially harmful ingredients. 

Tip #4: Replace Your Toothbrush Every 3-4 Months 

Regular Replacement of your toothbrush is vital for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Toothbrushes with frayed or worn-out bristles can be less effective at removing plaque and may cause gum irritation. 

Toothbrushes can accumulate bacteria over time, even after being rinsed with water, and can potentially become contaminated with respiratory viruses, such as the flu. It is beneficial to replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months or sooner if the bristles become frayed or damaged. 

Tip #5: Visit The Dentist Regularly 

Regular dental check-ups are essential for maintaining overall oral health. Regular dental check-ups can help to detect oral health problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease, in their early stages, when they are easier to treat. 

A regular visit to the dentist every six months for a routine check-up and cleaning is vital for your dental health. 


In conclusion, maintaining healthy teeth and gums is crucial for overall health and well-being. By implementing these five tips into your daily oral hygiene routine, you can help to prevent tooth decay and gum disease, maintain the overall quality of life, and save money in the long run.

Remember to brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily, use mouthwash, replace your toothbrush regularly, and visit the dentist regularly to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
