Dental Exam Q & A
What is a dental exam?
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Cracks, chips, or holes
- Crooked teeth
- Tooth infections
- Other oral health problems
After a dental exam, your dentist might recommend further treatment as needed to prevent future problems, repair your teeth, or eliminate gum disease.
How often should I schedule dental exams?
What happens during my dental appointment?
During your dental exam, a Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics dentist examines your dental X-rays and evaluates your teeth and gums. They let you know if you have tooth damage, decay, gum disease, or other oral health issues requiring treatment. They offer:
- Fluoride treatment
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Root canals
- Orthodontics treatment
- Gum disease treatment
Your dentist personalizes each treatment to strengthen your teeth, protect them from decay, and reduce the risk of complications in the future.
How can I care for my teeth at home?
Include plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet but limit sweets, soda, and other sugary drinks. Wear a mouthguard at night if you’re a teeth grinder or if you play contact sports.
Keep your teeth, gums, and smile as healthy as they can be. Call the office at Paseo Ranch Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics for a dental exam or book an appointment online today.
