Fahad Al Tamimi Dental Services
Why is regular dental checkup important?
The Fahad Al Tamimi clinical staff request patients attend dental screenings every six months, which is necessary because one of the main characteristics of oral diseases is that they are usually well recognized and treatable, so most dental problems can be prevented by regular dental check-ups.
The dental professional may also be screening for a disorder that is not yet symptomatic but requires treatment. Changes that initially require minimal treatment, if still left untreated, may require much more expensive interventions later.
Obligatory screenings for pregnant women include dental screening, as the female body undergoes hormonal changes during pregnancy, and this altered hormone level affects different organs, such as the oral cavity. A common problem under pregnancy is gingivitis, which, if left untreated, can cause tooth decay spreading to the teeth structure, which can lead to tooth dislocation, tooth decay, and eventually loss.
In addition, the bacteria in the inflamed gums, which enter the bloodstream as a focal point, can cause further inflammation in any part of the body, which can result in premature birth in gummies. Thus, instead of the half-year control recommended by dentists, it is advisable for pregnant ladies to undergo a screening every 3 months during pregnancy.
How is the medical diagnosis performed?
The Fahad Al Tamimi examination includes a series of comprehensive dental care diagnostic tests. During the diagnosis, oral examination is performed. There are several ways that can be done, for example, by physical evaluation – viewing, knocking, touching – when each physical sign is being examined for possible changes in the mouth.
Thereafter, we can use instrumental examinations to assess the condition of the teeth, for example, by making various X-rays and vitality examinations. With each examination method, the Fahad Al Tamimi dental care experts obtain complete dental care status and prepare a treatment plan and quote in consultation with the patient to resolve the oral issues.
What are the diagnostic tools?
Precise diagnostics are a prerequisite for effective therapy. There are plenty of devices available in the dental sphere that can effectively map the health of a patient’s oral cavity. Such an essential diagnostic tool is the dental care X-ray, which helps to discover hidden lesions that cannot be detected even by the most basic physical examinations. Based on the photographs taken, we get accurate information about the position and health of one’s teeth.
