Why You Need Dental Exams

Dental exams are essential. The sooner any issues are detected, the easier they are to treat. If an issue is left untreated until it becomes severe, it can cause permanent damage to the structure of your mouth. This will require more extensive treatment options to fix the problem.

What to Expect: Dental Exams

At this visit, your dentist will take x-rays and collect your complete dental history. The dentist will also perform a screening for oral cancer and periodontal disease, as well as evaluate previous dental work. During the second half of this appointment, your teeth will be professionally cleaned and polished.

Preparing for your Dental Exam

As a new patient, be sure to bring a mask, dental records (if you have them), and dental insurance (if you have insurance). By having these items, we will be able to streamline the paperwork process and get you to your appointment with your dentist.

How Often Should You Go?

You should see your dentist twice per year.

Regular checkups will allow your dentist to identify any potential problems and fix them before they get out of hand. By seeing a dental professional, they can detect problems like tooth decay early enough to prevent it from becoming severe.
