I think that a very important part of our job is prevention


We had Dr Corn'e Smith, a dentist. She qualified at the University of Pretoria in 2005. She has special interests in Orthodontics, Full cosmetic reconstructions, and Aesthetic dentistry.
Dr Corn'e has over 10 year's experience in doing full reconstructions for people with extended dental trauma or decay and she also has for treating kids and adults with extreme anxiety.

According to Dr Corn'e "The most people come to us  for regular check-up so it's our responsibility as dentist to look at there teeth and to look for any cavities when you are experiencing problems and to see how we can potentially treat and also prevent any further damage. I think that a very important part of our job is prevention".

The advise that she give is to do a check-up at least every year and to go to the oral hygienist every 6 months. Some people even go for check-up every 6 months that's great if you wanna do that, but at least once a year.

When you go to the dentist for a check-up , they always take x-rays and they look at your teeth to see if there are any cavities starting. They can prevent from forming and that can really only happen in the span of 12 months so if you go for a checkup every 12 months they should be able to pick up things before it becomes a big problem.

When they look at the effects that are Dental Health actually has a nasty stomach ulcer or overall health then there's so many different things that can come into play there's actually some statistics that show that dental health is directly related to people with cardiovascular disease so you can actually increase the risk of a stroke or heart attack if you don't take care of your teeth.
