Following the recent surge in tooth decay, leading dental providers American Dental Clinic stressed on the necessity of dental checkups.

Dubai, U.A.E.

With tooth decay now sweeping across the world, leading dentists in Dubai at the American Dental Clinic have urged the public to take their dental checkups far more seriously. A worrying report has shown that not nearly enough people were taking the time to visit the dentist thereby exacerbating dental conditions that could otherwise have been avoided. The clinic also stated that checkups have long been useful in detecting problems early on as well as mitigating serious ones along the way.

Of the various dental treatments that are now on offer worldwide, dental implants in Dubai have risen to the top as one of the most highly demanded options. This is due to the fact that cavities and consequently decay has been widespread, often detected too late to treat. Eventually, the tooth pulp which is the central nervous system of our teeth is infected and once the gums and root are affected, inevitably the tooth falls out. Seeing as how enamel is non-replaceable, the only option is to insert an artificial tooth known as an implant, which is particularly useful if one is very young. In fact, research also shows that a majority of tooth decay cases are alarmingly common amongst the youth which is very bad news for the future generation of the country.

‘People simply dislike or are afraid of visiting dentists in Dubai and frankly this is a sentiment that many share around the world. We understand that it can be disconcerting seeing as how there is a lot of discomfort involved with instruments you know nothing of and how they can feel. However, like it or not, these visits have the ability to greatly reduce not only the level of treatment you need but also the costs involved. Imagine spending on a professional cleaning to get rid of tartar as opposed to spending on implants as a result of the tartar creating issues. There is a vast difference. For some reason, people are simply looking at whiter, brighter teeth not heathy ones which is a big mistake. Strong teeth are the result of attentive care. The recent epidemic is cause for concern which is why we want to stress that even though you need not go every month for a checkup, you must go for the recommended bi-annual one. This, is generally sufficient.’ – Dr. Hani AbdulSalam: Oral Surgery
