If You Find Dentists and Dental Exams Scary, Fear No More

dca-blog-173-understanding-the-dental-exam

Access to affordable family dentistry allows you to keep your healthy smile, and it all starts with a routine dental exam. If you find dentists to be intimidating, understanding exactly what happens during an exam can help ease your fears. In a nutshell, your dentist will perform a thorough inspection of your teeth and mouth. After the exam, he or she will discuss your dental health, your risk of tooth decay, and what type of preventative measures you should take. Here are a few more specific details about what happens during a typical dental exam.

What to Expect During your Family Dental Clinic Exam

In addition to looking at your teeth and gums, your dentist will probably perform most or all of the following tasks:

  • Ask about your health problems and get a list of your current medications
  • Examine your mouth for signs of oral cancer
  • Check your jaw for bite problems
  • Schedule a periodontal examination to check the extent of gum disease
  • Perform a variety of dental X-rays
  • Examine prosthetic devices such as dentures or bridges
  • Discuss tooth replacement or advanced dental procedures if needed
  • Develop a treatment plan for any existing dental problems
  • Clean your teeth and remove stains
  • Counsel you about correct brushing and flossing techniques
  • Discuss diet and lifestyle habits that may be affecting your oral health
  • Make dental impressions of your teeth
  • Refer you to a dental specialist if necessary
  • Recommend a follow-up visit

With good hygiene and regular checkups at your family dental clinic, every generation of your family can enjoy confident, healthy smiles.
