We want to help you start your 2024 with strong and healthy smiles, which is why now is a great time for a checkup visit! With our dental exams, we look closely at your smile and provide a diagnosis with precision. At your Wheaton, IL, dental office, we can protect your smile with a dental exam and cleaning visit!
The Need for a Dental Exam
The serious oral health issues that could threaten the health and stability of your smile don’t form overnight. Which means a checkup with our team every six months is a chance to catch these problems in the early stages, so we can then create a treatment plan to correct them and preserve your smile. We suggest a checkup and cleaning every six months for kids and adults alike. They help you maintain good oral health and can help prevent the need for extensive treatment down the road.
What We’re Looking For
Our team will conduct the examination with digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, so we can diagnose the smile with precision and accuracy, and uncover the earliest signs of trouble. Our team watches for issues that impact smiles of all ages, such as tooth decay or dental infection. For teens and adults, we watch for gingivitis and gum disease, as well as TMJ disorder and bruxism. For kids, we want to make sure the smile is growing and developing properly. We also screen for oral cancer every year for our adult patients. We want to help you maintain good oral health, and that means catching possible concerns in the early stages.
In the same visit as your exam, we will also complete a dental cleaning. The procedure involves using an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual tool to break up and remove all plaque and tartar buildup. We then polish the smile, which makes it more difficult for buildup to occur in the months to come. The cleaning not only fights issues like bad breath and stained teeth to help limit the risk of tooth decay and gum disease too. If you have any questions about our approach to checkups and cleanings, or if you want to schedule a visit with our team, then reach out today! With your first visit of 2024, we can start you on the path to your best smile.
