Dental Exams and X-Rays

Going to an experienced dentist to maintain optimal oral health is more important than you might think. Oral health is not only the key to healthy teeth, gums, and smile, but is also directly tied to your overall health as well. In fact, the health of your mouth is directly linked to heat disease, stroke, respiratory disease, arthritis, diabetes, gastrointestinal disease, pre-term low birth weight in babies, and more. Despite this mouth-body connection, many of us still either don’t have a dentist or go to a bad one.

Professional Dental Cleanings
Professional dental cleanings rid your teeth of harmful plaque and tartar build-up. This is important for preventing tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other oral health issues. Not to mention, these cleanings may even remove some unsightly surface stains, which can help keep your teeth looking whiter and brighter.
 
Dental Check Up
During your dental check up, your dentist and oral hygienist will take certain steps to help the health of your mouth, including:
 
  • Evaluate your overall oral health.
  • Discuss oral hygiene best practices and habits.
  • Check your bite and jaw for any issues.
  • Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer.
  • Evaluate existing tooth restorations.
  • Take dental x-rays, if necessary.
