The dental professionals at Birchwood Dental recommend that our patients visit us at least every six months for a regular checkup. Visiting our office regularly is an essential step in helping you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.
Here's what you can expect during your regular checkup:
A Thorough Dental Exam: A full oral exam includes a careful assessment of your teeth, gums, mouth and jaw bone to check for any symptoms of cavities or other oral issues. These regular exams help us stay on top of your dental health, and if any issues are identified, we can administer timely treatment. When necessary, we will recommend digital X-Rays to detect any issues that are not visible to the naked eye. These visits are also an opportunity for us to listen to your concerns and answer any oral health-related questions you may have.
Oral Cancer Screening: Regular screening of our patients' mouths help us ensure that they are free of this dangerous condition, and in case any symptoms are noticed, they can be treated at an early stage.
Professional Dental Cleaning: Even if you have excellent oral hygiene habits, there are parts of the mouth where your toothbrush and floss cannot reach. A thorough cleaning performed by our skilled hygienist can remove food particles, plaque, bacteria and stains from your teeth. They will look great and feel clean and fresh!
