Even though most people know about regular dental checkups, the average person is not aware of the importance of having routine cleanings at the dental office or the impact oral health has on general well-being.
Early signs of dental and oral issues can be discovered in a routine dental checkup. In addition to dental decay, early signs of gingivitis or gum disease can be addressed and stopped with general dentistry before it has an opportunity to cause real damage to your gums and teeth. Taking care of dental problems in their earliest stages also saves you time and money. When you have regular cleanings and checkups, your dentist can monitor your oral heath better and even prevent some problems from starting.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Cavities and gum disease are always on the radar of dentists and hygienists; however, that is not all. Comprehensive dental exams also include an exam of the soft tissues of the mouth and neck as well as alignment of the teeth and other oral health issues.
Oral cancer screening only takes a few minutes; however, it can save your life if cancer is discovered. Thousands of people are victims of undetected oral cancer due to a lack of screening. About 20% of the general population has this lifesaving annual exam. As part of our commitment to a high standard of oral health care, we perform oral cancer screenings as part of our comprehensive dental exam.
