The Power of Routine Dental Exams
Dental exams are vital for maintaining optimal oral health. During these routine appointments, we thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth, and gums to identify any potential issues. We check for signs of tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and oral infections. X-rays may be taken to assess the condition of your teeth and bones beneath the surface. We’ll also evaluate the bite and jaw alignment to identify any misalignments or abnormalities. Additionally, we may also screen for oral cancer, checking for any abnormal growths or lesions. By detecting problems early on, dental exams enable timely treatment and prevention of further complications, promoting overall oral health and a confident smile. Regular exams, typically recommended every six months, play a crucial role in preventive care and maintaining a healthy mouth.
