Checkups, or Dental Exams, Are Invaluable to Maintaining Good Oral Health

Checkups, or dental exams, are invaluable to maintaining good oral health, because they allow the dentist to identify potential oral health concerns before they escalate.

Who Needs an Exam?

The American Dental Association and the Value Dental Centers teams suggest six-month exams for everyone. Adults, teenagers, and children need regular dental exams from the time the first tooth erupts.

Benefits of Regular Dental Exams

Visiting us twice a year for regular dental checkups will provide many benefits, including:

  • Detecting gum disease, oral cancer lesions, cavities, and other oral health problems early, when treatment is least invasive and most effective
  • Finding faults in existing dental work, so it can be replaced before complications arise
  • For children and teens, finding developmental concerns that require professional intervention
  • X-rays reveal potential oral health problems that are not visible to the naked eye
  • A consultation with the dentist, so he can answer all of your questions, including how your medications and health conditions may affect oral health
  • Staying on top of your oral health with regular checkups (and daily homecare) will promote retention of your natural teeth, perhaps for life
  • Personalized advice on how to best care for your teeth and gums at home

What to Expect

At every exam, the dentist will thoroughly evaluate your existing dental work, teeth, gums, jaw joints, head, and neck. Once a year, we’ll take x-rays at your checkups. You will be asked to provide a list of medications and current medical conditions. Please discuss any concerns or symptoms with the dentist, as well. The appointment will take 30 minutes to an hour. Before you go, the dentist will provide you with his findings and recommend treatment, if appropriate. We will schedule your next appointment or exam at checkout. Should you need information about our Easy Payment Plan, please ask. We want nothing to stand between you and your good oral health.

If you are interested in discussing cosmetic dental procedures, please mention your desire when booking your exam. We’ll make certain that the dentist reserves enough time in his schedule for a cosmetic consultation, in addition to your checkup.

Patients who do not have gum disease can book hygiene appointments following exams, for convenience. A regular hygiene visit takes about an hour.

Schedule Your Consultation Today!

If you’ve not had a comprehensive dental exam in six months or longer, please call the Value Dental Center nearest you to schedule your appointment. Let us know if you’d like to discuss cosmetic options or undergo a dental cleaning, following your exam. We are accepting new patients and look forward to meeting you.
