Dental Check-up & Cleaning
Dental care for the entire family
Dental At Forest Hill offers cost-effective dental benefits and comprehensive dental care for the entire family. It’s important to visit the dentist regularly for a check-up and cleaning. During a dental check-up, the dentist will examine your teeth and gums for any sign of problems.
Why should you have a regular dental check-up?
It is essential to have regular dental checkups in order to protect your dental health as well as your overall health. The mouth is often the first place where systemic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes and lupus manifest. A dentist will be the first person to find out about your condition and will recommend further doctors’ visits.
Additionally, they will check for cavities and tooth decay. Dental cleanings are important because they remove plaque and tartar.
What happens during a typical dental checkup?
Dental Checkup involves the following:
- A dentist will examine your mouth, gums, and teeth
- X-rays may be ordered if necessary
- Diagnosis of oral health issues
- clean and polish your teeth
- Should there be a need for further treatment, recommend it
A dentist will also ask about your general health and suggest solutions to problems. As an example, your dentist may recommend an electric toothbrush if arthritis prevents you from brushing properly. Additionally, certain medications may cause dry mouth syndrome, requiring your dentist to refer you to a doctor.
Early detection and treatment
Following an oral examination, the dentist diagnoses any oral health problems, orders x-rays (if necessary), and recommends treatment. Furthermore, early detection and treatment of dental diseases can mostly prevent extensive and expensive dental treatments and tooth loss.
It is important to see a dentist every six months for a check-up and cleaning. During a check-up, the dentist will check for any Cavities or other problems. They will also clean your teeth and remove any Plaque or Tartar that has built up. A cleaning is important because it helps to prevent gum disease and tooth decay.
If you have not been to the dentist in a while, it is important to make an appointment as soon as possible. Neglecting your dental health can lead to serious problems down the road. So be sure to schedule a check-up and cleaning today!
