It’s important to have a dental examination every six to twelve months. Many people only go to the dentist when they experience pain or discomfort. However, by that time, the problem may be much more difficult and expensive to treat. In this blog post, we will discuss what happens during a dental examination and why it’s so important to keep your teeth and gums healthy!
When you visit the dentist for a dental examination, your dentist will first ask about your oral health history. They will want to know if you have any current problems or pain, as well as whether you have had any previous dental work done. Next, the dentist will perform a physical examination of your teeth and gums. This includes checking for signs of decay, gum disease, and oral cancer.
The dentist may also take x-rays of your teeth. This allows them to see any problems that may be hidden below the surface, such as cavities or abscesses. Finally, the dentist will examine your bite and jaw alignment. If necessary, they may refer you to a specialist for further treatment. If any treatment is needed your Dentist will provide you with a treatment plan. They will answer any questions you may have and explain all your options available.
