What Happens at Dental Checkups

What Happens at Dental Checkups

Posted by Radiant Dental Care on Mar 21 2022, 08:22 AM

Regular dental visits are critical for keeping your teeth and gums healthy. In between these examinations, you must work to keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. For more information, contact Radiant Dental Care.

What Exactly Is a Dental Checkup?

Your dental checkup will begin with teeth cleaning by a hygienist or a certified dental assistant, which will include the following:

  • Using dental tools and instruments, they will remove or scrape tartar and plaque from around your gum line and the surface of your teeth 
  • Polish your teeth 
  • Report their findings 
  • Take X-rays if ordered by the dentist
  • A quick examination of the teeth includes:
  • Checking your gums, soft palate, throat, and neck for any abnormalities
  • Examining any X-rays that were taken
  • Recommending any additional dental work that you may require to maintain your oral health
  • Talking about your overall oral health and habits and medications you use with your dentist

Signs That You May Need Dental Examination:

  • Tooth pain
  • Persistent canker wounds
  • Tooth sensitivity issues to hot and cold foods 
  • Gums that are swollen and frequently bleed
  • Teeth with white spots
  • Dry mouth all the time
  • Persistent headaches
  • Color changes in the mouth or tongue

How Often Should I Have a Dental Checkup?

Having a dental checkup at least once a year can help maintain the overall health of your teeth and mouth while also identifying any problems early. Tartar buildup can cause long-term problems. Consider getting at least one dental checkup and exam per year to avoid any dental problems that necessitate costly procedures.

Checkups allow your dentist to see if you have any dental problems and assist you in maintaining good oral health. Leaving problems untreated may make them more difficult to treat in the future, so it is best to deal with them as soon as they arise, or, if possible, prevent them entirely.

Radiant Dental Care assures you the best treatment with quality dentists for you and your entire family. Your teeth will be healthier and stronger if you visit the dentist regularly. They will be there for you for the rest of your days.
