A Checkup Reduces The Risk Of Poor Oral Health

cleveland checkup visits

You need to have a dental checkup every six months, and that goes for kids and adults alike. A routine exam helps people avoid worsening oral health, including issues that could lead to tooth loss. In today’s blog, your Cleveland, TX, dentist explains how a checkup could help you and your family enjoy a stunning smile.

Why You Need an Exam

The common issues that develop in our smiles and threaten stability include tooth decay, infection, gingivitis, and gum disease. These disorders take months to form, which means attending a checkup every six months allows us to identify them in the earliest stages. We then treat them before they require more extensive (and expensive) solutions. Kids and adults alike have oral health issues that could harm their smiles and even their overall health, so please schedule a visit for everyone in your family ages two and older. Together, we can help you enjoy your best possible smile.

Using Digital Technology

To make a diagnosis with accuracy and precision, and to identify problems in the earliest stages, we employ digital technology. Digital x-rays and intraoral camera offer detailed glimpses of your smile, including the portions hidden from view, like the roots, jawbones, and oral structures. The images are available instantly chairside, so we can walk you through the diagnostic process. From there, we create a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique smile, and helps restore health, function, and beauty. In addition to looking for issues like cavities, we also screen for oral cancer for adult patients once a year, and keep an eye on little smiles for signs of developing misalignment, or issues with baby teeth falling out and permanent teeth erupting.

Moving Forward with Treatment

We have an array of treatment options to offer lifelike and long-lasting repair. For cavities in patients of all ages, we could place a metal-free composite resin filling, which is color-matched for your smile. We also have lifelike crown and veneers, as well as deep cleanings to help manage gum disease and keep smiles whole. If you have any questions about our approach to family dentistry, or if you would like to schedule a visit for you or a member of your family, then please contact our team today. We’re ready to see you, and help you enjoy optimal oral health.
