|A lot of people do not think about their dental records. You have the records from going to our dentist and they are something you don't think about thereafter. You don't really wonder where they go or how they are used.
It is important to note, though, that when you have dental records, a lot can be done with them that might not be something you think about right away while getting a cleaning at our office. Learn more about these records and how they are used and why it is so important that you keep them up to date.
Why Your Dental Records are ImportantIt is important to keep these records up to date each and every time you come into our office. You need to keep your appointments when they are scheduled so you can have the work done that needs to be done. You also want to make sure that you are getting the right work. If you ever needed to go for a specialty surgery or other procedure, these records can be helpful when having the work done that needs to be done.
Another consideration to make, though it is something that may never happen, is that these records can be used for forensic purposes. These records are not only used in many cases, but they are also used to teach other students with. Forensic cases across the country have been solved because of dental records that people kept current.
