Regular check-ups ‘can prevent emergency dentistry’


Emergency dentistry could be prevented by regular visits to a professional. Getting a regular check-up with an oral healthcare professional could help people to prevent emergency dentistry.

The Argus stated that healthy teeth for life may be a possibility as long as any problems such as tooth decay and gum disease are detected early, something which may be easier when they are regularly looked at.

Meanwhile, a dentist may also be able to help patients who are struggling with excessive teeth grinding, also known as bruxism, before it wears teeth away and necessitates cosmetic dentistry treatment.

"Very often a night guard will prevent this grinding and relieve symptoms and prevent further problems," the newspaper pointed out.

The Irish Dental Association recently said it has seen a sharp increase in bruxism lately, something which it attributed to the economic downturn.

Dr Dermot Canavan said lots of patients have been complaining of headaches, sore jaws and tooth damage and recommended that anyone affected should seek help.
