Exams and X-rays
Almost every dental visit involves some sort of an oral exam: comprehensive, regular, limited or follow up. During an exam, your dentist will assess the health of your teeth and gums and check on ongoing treatments and dental restorations. They will also be able to spot any signs of dental issues. Often, the doctor will order an X-ray to get a closer look at your smile. There are several different types of X-rays your dentist may request. Oral exams are a great time to discuss any health concerns you may have with your dentist.
Children and adults should have their teeth cleaned at least twice a year (about every 6 months) to help them keep their smiles bright and healthy. Teeth cleanings are generally painless. They are considered a type of preventative dental care. They are usually performed by dental hygienists and last anywhere from 30-60 minutes. During that time, your teeth will be cleaned, brushed, flossed, and often also treated with fluoride. It is extremely important to brush and floss your teeth daily to keep them clean even after the visit.
To remove decay in teeth, repair minor fractures or worn-down teeth, fillings are used. They can smooth out the surface of your teeth, which improves biting and chewing. Patients who suffer from damaged enamel may also get fillings to aid with teeth sensitivity. There are several different types of fillings available, depending on your needs, preferences, and budget. The procedure is fairly simple and pain-free since a local anesthetic is usually used to numb the affected area.
A tooth extraction is a removal of a tooth from its socket. In some instances, when teeth are severely damaged or when you suffered injury or trauma, extractions may be necessary. They are often regarded as the last option. Your dentist will perform a thorough examination of your mouth before making the final determination. They will explain why the procedure is needed and what it will look like. Your comfort and well being are the top priority during an extraction, whether it is simple or surgical.
