At Smile Big Dental Specialists, we emphasize patient comfort and health at all times. Dental health is important. Our dentists, orthodontists, and staff work together to ensure each individual we treat gets the best care possible. X-rays, exams, and dental cleanings are essential tools for ensuring your teeth and gums are healthy. Twice a year, schedule an appointment with our team, and we will make sure everything is as it should be. The benefits of being proactive with your regular checkups include healthier teeth and gums and a renewed peace of mind and confidence.
Thorough, Twice-Yearly Dental Examinations
The first step in any semi-annual dental appointment is the exam. We need to perform a visual inspection of all your teeth and your gums. This inspection process allows us to understand your overall oral health – and check for decay or periodontal disease. While there are some dental diseases and conditions where the symptoms are visible, others require x-rays to diagnose. Either way, the exam portion of your routine checkup is essential.
X-Rays Allow Us to Gain a Clearer Picture of Your Health
Once we are finished performing the visual examination, we’ll take x-rays. This step allows us to get a clear picture of what is happening with your teeth. They can reveal dental decay and diseases, as well as any other structural damage. By utilizing this technology, our dentists can confirm their visual inspection of your teeth and begin a treatment plan. The x-ray process is painless and doesn’t take long, minimizing the hindrance placed on our patients.
We Clean Tartar and Plaque from Teeth
Over time, plaque and tartar – the two causes of cavities – build up on the enamel of your teeth. Even patients with superb brushing and flossing habits will have plaque buildup because it occurs in areas too difficult for a toothbrush or floss to reach. During a cleaning, we will scrape all plaque and tartar from your teeth. This process ensures your teeth stay clean until your next dentists’ appointment.
