What Should You Expect From Your Preventive Dental Checkups?

If you are not currently taking advantage of preventive dental care, you may be unaware of what your teeth have missed out on. At each routine dental checkup, the standard practice will involve both a cleaning of your teeth, and a close look by your dentist for any oral health threats you currently face. These measures combine to offer major advantages for your smile. Patients who do not attend these routine exams are missing out on the kind of care that can drastically reduce your risk for dental troubles.

Combining Dental Cleaning And An Oral Examination To Fully Address Your Needs

Why do dental checkups feature an examination and a teeth cleaning? These combined actions make it possible to protect your smile from future threats, while also ensuring you receive the appropriate restorative dental care if something is wrong. At every appointment, your needs are being fully met, so that you can exit your dentist’s chair feeling confident in the state of your oral health.

What Happens If My Dentist Observes Something Wrong During My Checkup?

If no problems are identified during your checkup, then your next visit to the dentist’s office will be for your next checkup (assuming you avoid any dental emergencies, of course). However, if your dentist identifies the need for restorative dental care, they can talk to you about arranging that care as soon as possible. Timing is important – your cavity will continue to worsen if nothing is done to treat it. Delaying a procedure to care for your tooth could mean requiring a more involved treatment when you do see your dentist.
