What Occurs During a Routine Dental Checkup?

Your oral exam will usually start with your dentist checking the health of your teeth and gums. The point of this exam is to identify signs of gum disease or dental decay. Symptoms of gum disease can include inflammation, swelling, and gum recession.

Next, the dental hygienist will perform an oral cancer screening where they’ll look for any irregularities such as bumps, ulcers that won’t heal, or spots on the inside of your mouth. They will most likely also inspect your throat, neck, and face searching for periodontitis. There is a much higher likelihood of successfully treating it when detected early.

What Happens During a Routine Dental Cleaning?

The last part of your visit includes a dental deep cleaning that requires a speciality tool called a dental scaler. This scaler will remove plaque and tartar buildup. Next, a substance called prophylaxis paste, which has a slightly gritty feel, will be used to polish your teeth and remove any surface stains safely. Your routine dental cleaning will end after proper flossing between your teeth.

Why is Preventive Oral Care So Important?

Preventive oral care can reduce your risk of encountering a dental emergency. Here are a few benefits of routine dental checkups and cleanings:

  • Identify oral cancer symptoms before it’s too late to treat them successfully.
  • Eliminate plaque and tartar buildup, which will prevent cavities from forming.
  • Detect and heal gum disease before it causes permanent damage to your mouth and jaw.
  • Discover undetected oral problems with dental X-rays.

I came here to take my wisdom teeth taken out. On the day of the procedure, the nurses were very welcoming. The doctor was also very careful and was very nice to talk to. I just came back from my post 2 week checkup surgery and I got to meet more of the amazing staff.

They are REALLY good here!!! After my surgery, I had a question so I called the # they gave me. I was expecting an answering service because it was a weekend. But to my surprise, the Dr. that actually did my surgery was the one that answered my call.. Everyone was so nice and went the extra mile to make sure I was taken care of and understood every step.. Thank y'all for everything 💖

FAQ for DENTAL BONDING Treatment

No, dental bonding isn’t painful. When Dr. Hamlett or Dr. La Mastra applies bonding to repair a tooth, they are only working on the surface of the tooth. Some people may experience tooth sensitivity after the procedure is finished, but this is often easily managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and typically goes away quickly.

FAQ for Routine Dental Checkups

A regular dental checkup is necessary to maintain healthy teeth and gums. The American Dental Association recommends a visit to the dentist at least once a year for good oral health. Whereas, seeing your dentist every six months can prevent several oral issues since prevention is the hallmark of modern dentistry.

We are well aware that dental and oral health is essential for your overall health and well-being. At the same time, poor dental hygiene can lead to dental cavities and gum disease and greatly impact other human diseases like heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Therefore, maintaining good oral health leads to a lifelong commitment.

The frequency of a routine dental checkup totally depends on an individual’s oral health. If he/she is at higher risk for dental problems, that person would require more frequent dental checkups. Otherwise, routine checkups for an individual with good oral health are recommended every six months.

If you are experiencing the following symptoms; mild to sharp pain when eating or drinking something sweet, hot, or cold; brown, black or white stain on any tooth surface. Visible holes and pits in teeth, pain when you bite down, then there is a high possibility your teeth are rotting.
