What Happens During an Exam & Check-Up?
At a typical dental exam, our team will check for signs of decay or gum disease. An X-ray may be performed to provide a more detailed summary of your oral health and to more closely identify any problems. We will ask you questions about your current methods of dental care, such as how often you brush your teeth and floss, as well as whether you use a toothpaste with fluoride. With this information in mind, we will demonstrate proper dental care and provide suggestions on how to improve your habits to promote optimal oral health.
How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?
It is recommended that you receive a professional dental exam and cleaning at least once every six months. However, consult with our team to decide how often you should be examined, for we may suggest that you visit more frequently based on factors such as smoking, frequency of cavities, and genetic susceptibility to tooth and root decay, as well as gum disease. Preventative dentistry is an essential part of maintaining a healthy smile.
