Good dental health is critically important to your overall health and ability to enjoy life. Bad dental health cannot only cause pain and tooth loss but can affect your ability to eat and speak and have serious repercussions on your overall health. There are two ways to approach the health of your teeth and mouth; one way is to wait until something is wrong and then go to a dentist and get it fixed through restorative dentistry. The other approach is more proactive and stresses a preventative stanch through regular oral examinations and teeth cleaning by our Linndale dentist to thwart tooth and gum problems before they start.
Our Linndale dentist stresses oral examinations and twice yearly teeth cleaning as the better approach to good dental health. Prevention is a lot easier on the body than restoration of teeth and gums. Prevention starts with a comprehensive oral examination by our doctor. If you are a new patient at our practice the comprehensive examination is especially important because it is used to establish a baseline of the current state of your oral health against which all future examination findings will be compared. Our doctor will perform an examination of the structure of their teeth, jaw, gums, bite and facial structure looking for any signs of abnormalities, decay or disease. A set of digital radiograph images will be taken to enhance our staff’s ability to get a complete picture of the patient’s mouth. In addition to looking for tooth and gum problems the examination will also screen the patient for oral cancer.
Our Linndale dentist office is equipped with the latest dental equipment and technology to not only make the examination and any needed treatment as effective as possible but to also make it quick and painless so that our patients can enjoy a stress-free visit. After the initial examination and any needed treatments our patients will be encouraged to follow our preventative program that includes regular examinations and twice yearly teeth cleaning. Repeating the examination every year is important to make sure that there is no new decay or other problems that have started since the last exam.
