When patients have a thorough dental exam with our Cordova dentist, all aspects of their oral health are covered. During a dental exam, the following areas will be addressed: your overall gum health and oral hygiene; evaluation for tooth decay; evaluation for gum or jaw bone disease; evaluation of any need for tooth restorations; evaluate any tooth restoration needs; determine if there are any jaw or bite problems; and take dental x-rays .Your teeth will also be cleaned so that any stains or tartar deposits will be removed from your teeth. Our dentist will also perform a mouth cancer screening. You will have a complete professional dental cleaning. If it seems necessary, our hygienist or dentist will demonstrate the proper brushing and flossing technique for your teeth.
Dental exams are very important for many reasons. First of all, our Cordova dentist will be able to determine whether or not there are any dental problems that you did not know about that need to be addressed immediately. You may have a cavity that needs to be filled, or you may have the early or even more advanced stage of gum disease. It is easy and very important to prevent gum disease. Once disease takes hold, it can actually do so much damage to your gums and teeth that you may end up losing your teeth. However, there are many effective treatments that can be done to turn back gum disease. So, the most important thing to do is to be diagnosed and then treated. If you would like to see Dr. Weston for a comprehensive dental exam, contact us today at Weston Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to make an appointment. We look forward to welcoming you into our dental care family.
