Routine Dental Care & Examinations
There are many benefits to maintaining a healthy mouth, such as the prevention of heart disease. Without routine dental care, plaque builds up on your teeth and gums and can lead to periodontal disease, making you more vulnerable to heart disease, clogged arteries, and even strokes. The bottom line is that good oral care is imperative to your overall well being. Be sure to come see us at least every six months to ensure that your oral health is at its best. Comprehensive exams and digital X-rays are usually covered 100% by your insurance.
What the exam covers:
- Visual examination of tooth decay
- Examination of diagnostic x-rays to see cysts, tumors, invisible decay and other problems that can't be seen by the naked eye
- Evaluation of status of current restorations (fillings and others)
- Oral cancer screening
- Gum disease evaluation
We use the most modern x-ray technology available today. Because our x-ray machines are digital, your radiation exposure is reduced by about 90 percent.
FACT: 90% less radiation exposure than regular x-rays
Dental x-rays or radiographs are very important. They allow the dentist to detect problems that cannot be seen by the naked eye. These items include: loss of bone supporting the teeth (periodontal disease), cysts (sacks of fluid that form on the roots of teeth), cancerous and non-cancerous tumors, decay that occurs between teeth, and the location of teeth that haven't yet erupted into the mouth.
