As Painless as Possible
About Regular Check-ups
Regular dental check-ups are essential to your health, and not just your dental health. Your oral health is closely related to your overall health. It is recommended that you get a dental check-up once every six months, although your dentist at AAdams Dental Care may suggest you visit more frequently depending on your personal dental health and needs. It is important to notify your dentist of any changes in health or medication that has occurred in between your last and most current visit to their office.
What to Expect at Your Regular Dental Check-up
- Cleaning and Polishing
The dental hygienist will typically use a hand scaler to scrape and remove tartar from your teeth. They will then use a rotating brush instrument to remove any remaining plaque and polish your teeth.
A dental check-up is an appropriate place and time to review your dental hygiene methods and schedule with your dentist. The specialists at AAdams Dental Care will be able to go over this with you as they examine your teeth and gums, suggesting modifications when necessary.
Gum disease and oral cancer are serious concerns. Oral diseases can have serious implications for a person’s overall health. The gums will be thoroughly checked during a dental exam at a regular check-up.
X-Rays for Finding Cavities and Tooth Decay
Finally, if unusual decay or discoloration is noticed, X-Rays may be ordered. This is a common practice and not necessarily a cause for concern, but getting regular X-Rays is always a good idea. Small cavities are simple and less expensive to fix than the serious issues that can develop after a lengthy period of neglect.
If it has been more than six months since your last regular dental check-up, call AAdams Dental Care today to set up an appointment. They know how important dental check-ups are to a person’s health and will get you into their office as soon as possible.
