Dental Exams and Checkups in Amarillo
Maintaining Your Dental Health with Regular Professional Care
Good daily oral hygiene is important and at Oneida Dental, we are happy to share tips and product recommendations to optimize your dental health. Daily practices are only one part of dental health basics, and getting professional care is equally important. Regular visits to the dentist provide preventative treatments, such as teeth cleaning, and these checkups allow the early detection of any concerns such as gum infection and tooth decay. Two exams a year are standard practices, but our team may recommend more depending on your medical history or your lifestyle.
Oneida Dental can perform your regular dental exams to maintain your dental health. Call us today at (806) 216-6910 or fill out our online contact form to schedule an appointment.
What Happens During a Routine Dental Exam?
We may discuss your daily oral hygiene habits and ask you questions about your lifestyle that are relevant to your dental health. If any medical change has occurred and may impact your dental care, we recommend you share it with us.
The usual steps in a dental checkup include:
- Taking x-rays of your whole mouth to check for signs of infection or decay
- A thorough examination of your teeth and gums
- Teeth cleaning to remove surface deposits that are difficult or impossible to get while brushing and flossing
If we determine that you need an additional treatment or procedure, we will schedule a follow-up appointment.
Why You Need to See Your Dentist Regularly
The teeth cleanings that we perform during your routine checkups help prevent plaque and tartar buildup, the development of cavities, and they reduce the risk of gum disease. Regular visits to the dentist are also opportunities to treat bad breath and to learn new tips and methods to optimize your everyday oral hygiene.
Many first signs of health conditions appear in the mouth, neck, and/or lymph nodes. We check these areas during your exams, including screening for oral cancer. If we find any cause for concerns, we can refer you to a specialist.
