What Happens During a Typical Dental Checkup?

If you think all that happens during a regular visit to the dentist is that you get your teeth cleaned, there’s actually a lot more to it. Most times, the dentist comes in and spends just a few minutes looking everything over, talking to you about tips and offering advice. No matter if the dentist spends 5 or 30 minutes with you, the checkup they perform is a crucial component of your visit.

During your six-month checkup, you can expect Dr. Romack or Dr. Mulkey to check for any signs of tooth decay or gum disease. In addition, they’ll look for signs of teeth grinding, TMJ/TMD, sleep apnea, and even oral cancer. You’ll be surprised to learn that the American Cancer Society estimates more than 50,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer in 2019. It’s important that we check for any signs or symptoms associated with this disease, as early detection is key to successfully treating it.

Our highly skilled dental hygienists want you to leave our office with a clean and healthy smile, so you can expect a thorough cleaning while at Cosmetic & Family Dentistry. If necessary, we’ll take x-rays of your teeth to get a better view of your mouth in its entirety. This will also help our hygienists when charting your gum pockets. They’ll measure your gums to determine if there is any reason to be concerned about gum disease. Then, they’ll check each tooth for any signs of tooth decay or cavity development.

Once everything has been thoroughly checked, the cleaning process will begin. Using specialized tools, they will remove any plaque and tartar buildup around the gum line before polishing and flossing your teeth. This will give your teeth that smooth and shiny feel and have you grinning ear to ear as you leave our office.

If at any point during your checkup or cleaning we discover any advanced problems, we’ll discuss various treatment options to help you get your oral health back on track.
