Dental Exams

Importance of Regular Dental Exams

Dental exams are crucial to your heath.

Having a regular dental exam is crucial to your dental health, and you should have an exam at least 2 times per year.

During a dental exam, we will clean your teeth and check for cavities and gum disease. We will also evaluate your risk of developing other oral health issues, as well as check your face, neck and mouth for abnormalities. We may also need to take dental x-rays to properly diagnose you.

Regular Dental Exams are insurance against more expensive procedures. Dental exams allow us to diagnose early and take care of small problems before they become a major expense. With regular dental exams, your teeth will last a lifetime.

During your exam, we will discuss things like your diet and oral hygiene habits. (Do you brush twice a day and floss?) We may also provide advice on how to properly brush and care for your teeth. We may also advise on cosmetic enhancements to your teeth (teeth whitening, crowns, veneers, etc.).

We will recommend procedures that will ensure your teeth last for a lifetime, and guarantee a beautiful smile.
