Preventive dental visits play a key role in your oral health. It helps to identify a problem before it becomes serious. Tooth decay and gum disease are some of the problems that can be detected earlier, during a clinical checkup. Tooth decay does not hurt when it is on the outer enamel layer. It is only when the decay progresses into the dentine layer, does it become painful. Likewise, early stages of gum disease can progress painlessly producing obvious symptoms only in advanced stages of the disease.
The traditional rule of thumb is to visit your dentist every 6 months. Studies have shown that people without any dental problems can visit once a year while patients with dental issues and who are with higher risk factors should see their dentist every 3 to 4 months.
X-rays allow your dentist to pinpoint the location of cavities that may not possible to identify with a visual examination alone. X-rays can indicate the exact location of your impacted teeth.

The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) advises to replace your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months. After around 3 to 4 months of usage, the toothbrush bristles begin to look frayed and are no longer as effective for cleaning. The worn-out bristles are even prone to fungal and bacterial growth. Clinical research indicates that a new toothbrush can remove more plaque than a worn-out toothbrush.
Dehydration can affect the health of your teeth. The less hydrated you are, the less saliva your body produces. Saliva is your body’s defense mechanism against the bacteria in your mouth. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), saliva protects your teeth from cavities by neutralizing the enamel-destroying acids and washing away the food debris. The ADA also explains that saliva bathes your teeth with fluoride, calcium and phosphate, which are minerals that help to strengthen your teeth. If you are less hydrated, the volume of saliva decreases and this can increase your risk of dry mouth, bad breath and dental disease.
Studies show children can develop their first dental cavities by 2 years old.
