What happens at a routine dental examination?
There are three steps to a recall visit with the dentist. Patients should visit their dental provider every six months to undergo x-rays, examinations, and cleanings.
- X-rays. Our practice encourages patients to have x-rays done during their first visit to our practice and at subsequent appointments afterwards. We offer panoramic dental x-rays that allow us to see the entire smile in one visit. These x-rays not only allow us to look for concerns such as periodontal disease or tooth decay but monitor the health of the smile beyond what the eye can see. They are also used in planning procedures such as dental implants.
- Examination. During the examination, we will evaluate the smile to look for signs of periodontal disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer. We also assess dental restorations, such as fillings and crowns, to ensure they are in place and functioning as desired.
- Dental cleaning. Dental checkups also include a cleaning of the teeth, during which the removal of calculus and plaque occurs. When complete, the teeth are also polished to look beautiful and healthy! Our team will also educate patients on good oral hygiene habits to practice at home between visits to improve their smile’s health.
