Quality Dental Care is Built on a Foundation of Regular Dental Exams
At Dentistry On 10, we emphasize a proactive dental care approach to stay ahead of your oral health. By visiting Dr. Rina Kotecha and her associates every six months, we can help you and your family to prevent the onset and progression of various oral health problems. We have the skills and experience to offer comprehensive preventive dentistry services, including dental exams, regular teeth cleaning, and personalized patient education.
What to expect during your oral exam
When you visit us for the first time, we take the opportunity to get to know you personally and look into your medical history to establish a baseline for your oral health. This initial consultation is followed up with a clinical examination, including periodontal evaluation, checking your occlusion (bite), and oral cancer screening.
In addition to visual examinations, we use digital radiographs to uncover any underlying issues hidden beneath your gum line. These modern digital radiographs emit minimal radiation providing safe, accurate, and fast diagnostics.
As we look closer at your smile, we will show you how bad habits, poor oral hygiene, certain medications, and dietary and lifestyle choices have affected your dental health. We want every patient to enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile. And the only way to do this is to establish your current oral care regimen and provide corrective care and tailor-made education to keep your smile on track.
After an oral exam, we proceed with professional teeth cleaning if we don’t find significant issues with your smile. Dental cleanings remove built-in plaque and tartar in your mouth to prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral problems.
Why you should never miss routine dental check-ups
Do you know that you can finish a typical dental exam in one hour? While it may seem fast, a dental hygiene check-up yields long-lasting results that can benefit you for many years.
Here are the many advantages of regular dental exams.
- They prevent gum disease
- They prevent cavities and tooth decay
- They keep your breath smelling fresh
- Dental cleanings eliminate surface stains for a beautiful smile
- They prevent you from incurring costly restorative dental care treatments
