What the Best Dentists Know – Dental Exams Save Smiles and Money


General dentistry experts recommend having a dental examination about every six months, or more often if you have chronic medical or dental problems. Although proper brushing and flossing do wonders for your dental health, regular exams are essential to spot developing problems before they require invasive and expensive treatment. If you smoke or have other risk factors for oral cancer, your dentist can keep a close eye on the condition of the soft tissues in your mouth so that any unusual changes are detected and treated early.

What to Expect During Your Dental Checkup

Your dentist may not conduct exams in precisely the same manner as others, but you can expect most of the following to occur:

  • Tooth cleaning and polishing using a hand scaler or ultrasonic dental device
  • Demonstration of proper hygiene techniques to improve hygiene or correct problem areas
  • Thorough examination of tooth surfaces, gums, and soft tissues inside your mouth
  • Periodontal probing to determine the extent of gum disease
  • Dental X-rays to provide a more detailed view of your teeth and jaw bone
  • Discussion of any existing problems and formulation of a treatment plan
  • Referral to a specialist if necessary

Help the Best Dentists Give You the Best Care

Your oral health is closely linked to your general health, so it’s important to be open and communicate important information about your oral and overall health and any concerns you may have to your general dentistry clinic. Be sure to do the following:

  • Tell your dentist about any medical problems that have been diagnosed since your last visit.
  • Provide an updated list of your current medications; include over-the-counter medicines and natural supplements.
  • Discuss any new problems or symptoms related to your teeth or gums.
  • If you have dental anxiety, tell your dentist. New anesthesia options and treatment techniques can help you cope with your fear of pain or dental instruments.
