At Sunrise Dental of Kent, regular dental exams are important part of preventative care. We recommend visiting your dentist at least every 6 months for a dental exam to maintain excellent dental health.
Regular checkups ensure that problems can be caught early and treated conservatively, saving you time, money, and pain. Problems with your teeth or gums can spread beyond your mouth and affect your general health, causing problems in other areas of your body. Visiting your dentist regularly will help you maintain your overall well-being.
During a dental exam, the dentist or hygienist will clean and examine your teeth for gum disease, cavities, evaluate the integrity of your existing restorations, perform an oral cancer screening, and asses your risk for developing other oral health problems. Exams may include digital dental X-rays, Ct scan (a 3D image of your mouth), use of an intra oral camera or other diagnostic procedures.
Regular checkups and cleanings help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, expensive and costly dental procedures, bad breath and helps improve your smile and overall health. Regular checkups and professional cleanings will help your teeth and gums stay cleaner, last longer and can prevent painful problems from developing.
