How Routine Dental Checkups Help Your Smile in the Long Run
Having a routine dental checkup can help you prevent dental diseases such as Cavities, loose or broken teeth, damaged fillings and many more.
When you visit us for dental examination, we ensure we have your teeth cleaned and gum line cleaned.
We will also invest our time checking for swelling in the gums or redness and bleeding and even measuring the depth of gingival pockets signaling gum disease.
We will also assess the level of your bite, check for bruxism, check the contact between teeth and examine the lower jaw joints for problems.
We will also inspect the soft tissues in your head, mouth, and neck, including the lymph nodes, for any signs of cancer or infection.
If we detect some problems or notice any signs, we may refer you for further diagnostics with recommended treatment options.
Early dental checkups are very important, so that the dentist could easily provide effective and economical treatment on time.
With the use of X-rays and other diagnostic tools, we can easily detect early problems you weren’t aware of.
Sometimes you might be told to see the dentist regularly since your oral health is directly related to your overall health and vice versa.
When you visit us, ensure you let our dentist know the kind of medications and supplements you are currently taking.
And if you are also noticing signs of tooth sensitivity, pain or an unusual lump. The earlier you make complains the better the treatment success rate.
