No matter how often you brush and floss your teeth, it’s essential to have your teeth professionally cleaned regularly. Receiving thorough cleanings from your dentists is about more than just cleaning your teeth. As dentists, we specialize in diagnosing and treating dental conditions that affect oral health. Getting regular checkups can help us identify cavities, gum disease, and other issues in advance and treat them to keep people’s teeth healthy.
How We Provide Dental Checkups at Dental Care 4 U
During your regular or bi-annual checkup, our receptionist may ask to require a patient questionnaire about your oral health history. From there, our dental hygienist will begin your dental checkup with a teeth cleaning that includes using tools to remove or scrape tartar and plaque from your teeth and gums. After cleaning and polishing your teeth, our hygienist will report their findings to Dr. Khurana. During this time, you may also be required to take x-rays for further examination.
After your teeth have been cleaned, Dr. Khurana will complete a quick checkup on your teeth by examining your gums, soft palate, throat, and neck to check for any abnormalities. He will also review any X-rays that may have been taken and recommend any additional dental work you may need to care for your oral health. Through this extensive review, Dr. Khurana will discuss your oral health and habits, schedule follow-up appointments for treatments, and plan ahead for your next regular exam. He will also help you be aware of any problems with your oral health, including tooth decay, misalignment, gum disease, and discoloration.
By getting a dental checkup at least once a year, you and your family can maintain your oral health and help identify any dental problems early. The best way to avoid any dental problems that require costly treatments is to get at least one dental checkup and dental exam each year, and for children, schedule a bi-annual exam, as their teeth require different forms of care to treat.
