What to Expect During a Dental Exam and Cleanings
If you haven’t visited a dentist in a while, that’s okay. The important thing is to decide you want to get your oral health back on track. During your initial exam, our dentist will look for symptoms of decayed teeth, problems with your gums, previous fillings or crowns, bite alignment issues, and any other signs that could indicate a potential risk of infection or disease.
Here are a few benefits to a dental exam and cleaning:
- Removal of stains that dull and discolor teeth
- Prevention of gum disease, heart attack, and stroke
- Saved cost on long-term dental expenses
- Detection of oral cancer
- Prevention of bad breath and tooth loss
How Often Should You Visit The Dentist For A Routine Exam?
It is recommended that you have a professional dental exam and cleaning every six months. Preventative maintenance for your teeth is crucial in keeping your smile healthy.
One of the main reasons you should consider a routine dental exam is that some dental issues are subtle and only a trained dentist can identify them. The first thing our dentist will do is examine your mouth to check for any signs of cavities and/or decay. After, we’ll evaluate potential risk factors to facilitate early detection of any dental problems. Our dentist may also examine your bite and decide whether digital x-rays are needed.
When you visit Sterling Dental Center, we’ll make sure to meticulously and carefully clean hard-to-reach plaque and remove any gunk that may have developed. We’ll give you free tips on how to maintain and improve oral hygiene at home, including lessons on how to properly brush, floss, and care for your teeth.
