Your Dental Exams Are Important, and Here’s Why

If we find a cavity during your dental exams, we can take care of it with a simple tooth filling. But if the dental decay worsens, you may end up needing a costly and complicated dental treatment like a root canal – or end up losing your tooth. Routine dental exams help us find the problems while they are still small and correct those issues before they become detrimental to your oral health.

We don’t just look for cavities during your examination. We also look for signs of:

  • Gum disease. This is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults. We can stop its damaging effects with a deep cleaning treatment.
  • Oral cancer. The kinds of cancer found during dental exams have low survival rates after five years, so it’s important to identify them during their earliest stages.
  • Dental problems like teeth grinding. If we notice signs of teeth grinding, we can recommend strategies to help. Grinding is not only hard on your teeth; it causes problems like chronic headaches.

During your dental exam, you’ll get a thorough teeth cleaning. We’ll remove plaque and tartar from places you just can’t reach with a toothbrush and floss – we’ll even clean your gums! Your smile will look and feel great after we remove surface stains and polish your teeth.

If we find a cavity, we can usually place a composite tooth fillings during your visit. No need to schedule a second appointment! And we may recommend anti-decay treatments like dental sealants or fluoride varnish.
