Dental Checkup

Routine check-up appointments are crucial to the health of your mouth and body.

Routine check-up appointments are crucial to the health of your mouth and body. Preventive dentistry aims to preserve a patient’s natural teeth, and dental check-ups play a large role in this. A check-up allows the dentist to identify and address any problems that could progress if left untreated.

During a regular check-up, our hygienist will update your medical history and assess the health of your teeth and gums through an examination. Diagnostic X-rays are performed as necessary to visualize any problem areas of decay.

For children patients, fluoride treatments are usually advised and performed by the hygienist.

At your check-up, we will evaluate factors such as:

  • Risk for decay
  • Development or progression of gum disease
  • Failure or risk of failure of existing restorations

Most often, people who see their dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings do not require intervention.

In addition, when required, our hygienists and dentists will:

  • Demonstrate effective tooth brushing and flossing techniques
  • Provide infant care instruction as well as nutritional information to help in the prevention of dental disease
  • Recommend preventive treatment for oral habits in children, such as thumb-sucking
  • Recommend space maintainers to allow for optimal eruption of new teeth
  • Recommend sealants for virgin teeth in order to help prevent tooth decay
  • Provide custom-made athletic mouth guards for active children and adults engaged in athletic pursuits
