The importance of exams and dental cleanings
We understand that today’s family is busier than ever and as a result, preventative dental appointments often fall to the bottom of the priority list. While it can be easy to put off scheduling these exams, they are vital to your overall wellness. Not to mention, routine exams and dental cleanings are short, inexpensive visits that can save you from the time and costs associated with restorations down the road.
When you come to Star Care Dental, you can expect the following from your exam and cleaning:
- A full medical history that allows us to understand more about your oral health, including any medications you are taking and any medical conditions for which you are undergoing treatment.
- A visual exam at all the oral structures including the teeth, gums, jaw and neck.
- X-rays may be taken, as necessary.
- A professional cleaning is performed to remove tartar from the teeth and gums. They are then polished to a beautiful sheen. T
- The dentist will then go over any problems that were discovered and discuss next steps.
These routine hygiene visits are a pertinent part of your oral care routine and will help you tremendously in the prevention or early detection of decay and disease.
