What Happens During a Dental Checkup?

The first part of your appointment will be the dental exam, or the dental checkup. Dr. Blake Cure or Dr. Mark Smith will start off by carefully inspecting your mouth, which typically includes:

This thorough examination gives us the best chance of spotting the earliest warning signs of issues like tooth decay and gum disease. Afterwards, we’ll review our findings with you and create a plan to keep your oral health on track. We’ll also be happy to answer your questions, investigate any dental concerns you may have, and give you personalized recommendations for how to best care for your smile at home.

The next part of your appointment is the dental cleaning. During this portion, one of our skilled hygienists will use a sharp eye and a gentle touch to carefully remove plaque buildup from your teeth and gums. They’ll also clean away any plaque that’s hardened into tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional. Once all these particles have been cleared out of all the nooks and crannies in your smile, we’ll polish your teeth. This removes any surface stains and leaves you with a gleaming, refreshed smile!

Why Is It Important to Visit Your Dentist Every Six Months?
