What Happens During a Dental Checkup?
- Dental Cleaning: First, Dr. Anderson will use a small hand scaler or ultrasonic instrument to gently remove tartar buildup from your teeth. Then he will gently polish your teeth to remove any remaining plaque or staining.
- Dental Hygiene Education: Next, Dr. Anderson will discuss any dental hygiene problems, and show you how to brush and floss more effectively if necessary.
- Dental Exam: Then, Dr. Anderson will carefully examine your teeth, gums, and mouth, to look for signs of cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer. During the exam, Dr. Anderson may also measure the pockets between your teeth and gums to determine if any cavities are present. Dr. Anderson will also recommend an appropriate treatment if any problems are found.
- Dental X-rays: If it’s your first visit with Lovell Dental, Dr. Anderson may also need to take x-rays to look for decay, gum disease, and other potential problems.
Semi- annual dental checkups can help you maintain a healthy smile. If you see him regularly, Dr. Anderson will be able to focus on preventing dental problems rather than fixing them.
