After your teeth cleaning, our dentist will come in to examine your mouth.
If this is your first appointment with us, our Holland dentist will do a thorough examination of your mouth to rule out cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. For example, swollen bleeding gums can be a sign of gum disease.
During this time, our dentist will also review your dental x-rays to make sure there is nothing going on beneath the surface. Since it’s not uncommon for cavities to hide between teeth or along the gum line, it’s important we take new teeth x-rays at each appointment.
Benfits Of Oral Examinations
Scheduling a dental checkup every 6 months is the best way to protect your oral health. That way, if a new cavity starts to form between appointments, we’ll be able to fix it with a simple filing and not a more drastic procedure like a porcelain crown. A dental cleaning removes plaque buildup to reduce your risk of cavities and gum disease. Not only do dental exams protect your oral health, but they also protect your wallet.
See your dentist for teeth cleanings every six months!
