Dental Exam Q&A

What are dental exams?

A dental exam at Championship Dental is a comprehensive exam of your teeth, mouth, and gums to ensure you maintain good oral health. Your dentist looks for signs of teeth and gum problems that could be problematic if left untreated. 

What are the benefits of dental exams?

There are numerous benefits associated with attending routine dental exams. They help your dentist detect and treat the following oral health problems:

  • Cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Oral cancer
  • Oral infections
  • Cracked teeth
  • Damaged teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Teeth crowding

Maintaining good oral health with routine dental exams optimizes your overall health and wellness. Exams, professional cleanings, and preventive dental treatments help prevent you from developing cavities and other oral health problems in the future.

What happens during dental exams?

When you arrive for a dental exam, you’re greeted by the friendly Championship Dental staff. A dental assistant takes X-rays, so your dentist can detect or rule out oral health problems and determine whether you require a deep or basic teeth cleaning. Your hygienist thoroughly cleans your teeth by removing plaque, polishing your teeth with a special toothpaste, and flossing your teeth.

Prior to your professional teeth cleaning, your dentist examines your X-rays, teeth, and gums, and lets you know if you require dental treatments, such as a filling, crown, root canal, or gum disease treatment. They might recommend sealants or fluoride treatment to prevent cavities and other oral health problems.

For added comfort, the dental staff at Championship Dental provides a comfort menu to ease anxiety and help relax you. They also offer same-day emergency exams in case you have a toothache, chipped, cracked, or knocked-out tooth, or another dental emergency.

How often should I schedule dental exams?

Your dentist lets you know how often to schedule a dental exam based on how healthy your teeth and gums are. Most people should see a dentist every six months, but you might require exams and cleanings more often if you’re prone to cavities, have gum disease, or experience a dental emergency.

Take care of your health and smile by preventing oral health problems or treating them before complications arise. Schedule an appointment with Championship Dental over the phone or online today.
