The Dental Examination
The American Dental Association suggests all individuals should have at least two regular dental checkups a year. Our dental exams include an assessment of your teeth, gums, tongue, and cheeks for cavities or any other issues. During the exam, we also examine your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and look for signs and symptoms of oral cancer. After the exam, you and your dentist will determine a treatment plan to best suit your dental needs.
Your health is always our top priority. At your initial visit, our highly skilled team will take a full set of oral X-ray images. This technology helps us detect cavities, bone loss, and other oral problems. X-rays are not required at every visit, but we suggest patients get them at least once a year and prior to some oral procedures.
We take the time to explain and educate you about your specific dental issues. It is very important to us that our patients make informed decisions regarding their oral health. We make sure all our patients’ questions are answered and they understand their treatment plan before we begin any dental work.
Professional dental cleanings are recommended to keep gingivitis (gum disease), dental day, and periodontitis (bone loss) from forming or progressing. Dental decay and bone loss are the top causes associated with tooth loss. Although professional dental cleanings are important, they are secondary to your at-home oral care. To maintain good oral hygiene, brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once. Try to stay away from foods that can potentially harm your teeth and drink plenty of water to wash away bacteria. We are happy to answer any questions you may have during your visit. We believe a happy patient is an informed one.
