What to Expect at Your Dental Checkup

When you visit us for a dental checkup, we’ll follow the same basic steps at each appointment.

Oral Examination

First, your dentist will evaluate your mouth and make note of any spots that appear to be in trouble. They’ll look for cavities and signs of oral health problems such as gum disease. The dentist may also ask you about any tooth sensitivity you may have.

Next, your dentist will take X-rays of your teeth to see if there are any deeper issues that need to be addressed.

Your dentist will then perform a professional teeth cleaning to help improve and maintain your dental hygiene.

If any cavities were found during the examination, your dentist will either fill them at that appointment or ask you to schedule another appointment to receive sealants.

About once per year, your dentist will also perform an oral cancer screening to check for signs of abnormal tissues and other problems.

Things to Mention at Your Dental Checkup

Before, during, or after your dental checkup, you will have time to voice any concerns you have about your dental health.

Bad Breath

Causes of halitosis include infrequent brushing and flossing, gum disease, smoking, and more. If you brush frequently but still experience bad breath, discuss potential causes with your dentist.

Caused by bacteria found in plaque, gum disease can lead to loose teeth and eventually periodontitis. Be sure to discuss preventative measures with your dentist.

Tooth sensitivity is a very common concern. Be sure to discuss any tooth sensitivity you have with your dentist as it may be treatable with a fluoride rinse.

Often a side effect of taking prescription drugs, certain diseases, and infection treatments, dry mouth causes frequent thirst, sores in the mouth, cracked lips, dry tongue, and more. Talk to your dentist about ways to care for this issue at home.
