Are you the kind of person who sees to it that your annual checkups are met? Do you always monitor your health condition? Do you often visit your doctors like your dentist and such? Then, you are in the right track. Most people only consult a doctor or have their checkups when they feel pain or when they feel that something is wrong with their body. What they don’t know is that we could also have our checkups on regular days and it is truly important and beneficial.
On a video found in WTVY.com, we would be able to know more about why keeping annual health check-ups are important.
Why Keeping Annual Health Check-Ups Are Important
Primary Care Physician “Dr. Edward Crockett” joined Marie Feagins on Friday’s Live at Lunch to talk about why keeping those annual health check-ups are so important. Read more here.
Those were really good reasons on why we should have our annual checkups. It is good for healthy people to have checkups in order to monitor their health and to make sure that everything is fine. However, it is as important for people who are sick or people who have disabilities to have regular checkups.
John Trevians will tell us more about it through his article below.
The importance of an Annual Health Check
Checks for people with a learning disability can play such an important role in ensuring they get the right care from the NHS at the right time.
I’m regularly struck by the privileged position we have to implement real change and improve people’s lives for the better. One such area which my team works on is seeking to improve the numbers of people with a Learning Disability receiving an Annual Health Check, where the latest set of data was published today.
Sadly, people with a learning disability can have poorer physical and mental health than other people and studies have shown that they can die on average 20 years younger than the rest of the population The Confidential Inquiry into premature deaths of people with learning disabilities (CIPOLD 2013) reported that people with a learning disability are three times more likely to die from causes of death that could have been avoided with good quality healthcare. Many of these deaths are avoidable and not inevitable. Read more here.
True! Those were important reasons that we should consider and be aware of. There are different kinds of doctors and different kinds of examinations and processes that we could undertake during checkups. One important examination is the x-ray. It could do an important thing which is to see the things inside our body. One part of the body which we could have examined through x-ray is our teeth and our gums.
THE Importance of X-Rays
One of the primary reasons we go to the dentist is to detect problems before they turn into serious concerns. While a physical examination can find signs of issues, some oral diseases are just not visible to the naked eye. This is why dental X-rays are such an important part of oral care. Dental X-rays can detect even the slightest traces of oral health problems at their earliest stages, such as cavities, gum disease, oral infections, and some types of tumors. With early detection, you can get the treatment you need before problems have a chance to develop. If after examining your mouth and reviewing these images, your dentist finds no cavities or growth issues, you can rest assured he or she has seen the whole picture. Here is some more info on x-rays: Read more here.
X-ray is really an important part of dentistry because some dental problems don’t appear on the outside alone. That is why thanks to this kind of technology because we are able to look in the inside of the body for our doctors to detect if something is wrong and needs medication. Regular health checkups not only for our teeth but for the whole body are really important for prevention and early cure. It is better to take a few minutes of our time for regular checkups rather than spend almost years curing sickness that weren’t detected early.
