In order for you to maintain a healthy smile, our Grand Rapids dentists need to perform comprehensive oral examinations at least twice a year. We use advanced dental technology, such as digital X-rays, to monitor the condition of your teeth and identify early signs of decay.
The Importance of Oral Exams
Regular oral examinations give our dentists the opportunity to look for early signs of oral health problems. That way, we can protect your oral health at minimal cost and disruption to your life. For example, seeing our dentists every six months can be the difference between getting a minor tooth filling and needing root canal therapy.
Additionally, early detection of gum disease can save your smile. Comprehensive dental exams allow our professional staff to assess the condition of your gums and their position along your teeth.
If we detect a cavity or other oral health issue during your dental checkup, our preventive dentists will advise you on treatment options. That way, you can be informed and confident while making dental care decisions. Our dentists can also give you tips on how to maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine to minimize your risk of future oral health problems.
The best part about scheduling a regular oral health exam is that we won’t just check your teeth and send you on your way. We’ll also perform a professional teeth cleaning and, if necessary, take dental X-rays. This way, you can get all of your necessary preventive dental care in one appointment.
