The Need For Regular And Comprehensive Exams And Checkups
It may have been some time since you have had a thorough dental checkup, and it could also be entirely possible that you now realize that you want to maintain your currently flawless smile. If this is true, or if you already have some dental issues that trouble you, we are ready to evaluate your dental needs and your current dental health with a comprehensive checkup and examination.
When you make your first visit to our office, you can expect your all-inclusive dental exam to last about an hour, as it will usually include all of the following:
- Evaluation of existing dental work
- A visual exam, which would consist of digital x-rays
- A blood pressure check
- Extra-oral and intra-oral photographs
- VIZILITE technology oral cancer screening
- DIAGNODENT technology laser cavity detection
- 3-D mouth images, if applicable
During our dental checkups and exams, it is vital to screen for early signs of decay, already formed cavities, possible periodontal or gum disease, and other harmful issues such as oral cancer. Detecting these problems in their early stages saves on the total amount of necessary dental work and the resulting amount of money you would have to pay. Prevention always saves you money in the long run.
We always stress vigilance concerning these regular examinations for our patients and their families and the teaching of their children about the need for regular, effective at-home oral care for their teeth and gums.
The need for regular, comprehensive dental checkups and examinations has never been greater than it is right now. At our practice, we are dedicated to ensuring that our clients are happy and satisfied with their oral health!
During this vital hour or so of your time, we will always listen with patience to all of your concerns and goals, and the information we gather will enable us to help you achieve a more healthy and beautiful smile that will last a lifetime.
If you are ready to receive your next or first dental checkup and exam, please call us for an appointment as soon as possible.
