No matter the current condition of your teeth, it is always a good idea to visit your dentist for a routine teeth check-up to ensure the ongoing health of your teeth, gums and smile. Investing in your teeth now through regular exams not only helps you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile, but also helps you avoid costly treatments and more serious issues down the road.
At Lamar Dental, we are your one-stop shop when it comes to assessing the function, appearance and overall health of your mouth. Our preventive dental services typically include hygienic cleanings, periodontal exams, cavity checks, tooth sensitivity checks and more to maintain a healthy and functional smile.
What Can I Expect From a Routine Dental Check-up?
There are two stages to a dental check-up — the examination and the cleaning. During the initial exam, the dentist will:
- Review your medical history and records
- Take necessary X-rays
- Assess your gums and tissue to determine what type of hygiene appointment is needed
- Conduct a visual oral cancer screening
- Provide a comprehensive dental exam
Following your initial exam, Dr. Dunn will then assess your situation and talk with you about the most effective solutions for treatment. She can even tailor a custom (and budgeted) treatment plan just for you! From dental fillings to teeth whitening, we can discuss any and all dental treatments that might benefit your smile.
Do Your Homework!
Preventative dental care doesn’t stop after you leave our office. It’s important to maintain healthy oral hygiene habits at home. This includes brushing twice a day and flossing daily to avoid cavities, prevent gum disease and maintain the strength of your teeth until your next visit with us.
