Need a Dental Checkup & Cleaning?
If you want to keep your teeth and gums healthy, it’s important that you get regular dental checkups and cleanings. During these visits, our Dentist in Miami will check for signs of tooth decay and gum disease. They’ll also clean your teeth and provide advice on how to prevent problems in the future. Here’s everything you need to know about this important step toward healthy teeth:
What is a dental checkup and cleaning?
A dental checkup and cleaning is a routine visit to the dentist. It’s important to visit the dentist regularly because they can spot problems early, before they become serious issues. During your appointment, our Miami Dentist will examine your teeth and gums for any signs of decay or infection that may need treatment. They’ll also check for cavities or other problems with your bite.
If you haven’t been to see us in a while (or ever), we’ll first make sure everything is healthy before getting started on any work that might need to be done during this visit. Once we’re finished examining you, we’ll let you know what kind of treatment would be best for keeping those pearly whites healthy and strong!
How often should I get a dental checkup and cleaning?
Our Dentist in Miami will recommend how often you should get a dental checkup and cleaning. Most people need to visit the dentist at least once a year, but visit more often if you have any problems or symptoms.
If you have diabetes or high blood pressure, it’s important for your overall health to keep up with regular visits to the dentist. You should also make sure that all of your family members go in for checkups so that they can benefit from proper care as well!
What should I expect during a dental checkup and cleaning?
A dental checkup and cleaning is a routine procedure that the dentist performs to ensure that your teeth are healthy. During this visit, the dentist will:
- Examine your mouth and teeth, looking for any problems, such as cavities or gum disease.
- Clean your teeth with special tools called scalers or metal wires to remove tartar buildup on the surface of each tooth (this is known as scaling). This helps prevent tooth decay by removing harmful plaque-causing bacteria from around each tooth’s root.
- Check for signs of periodontal disease (gum disease), which can lead to tooth loss if left untreated–for example, by doing an X-ray scan called a periapical radiograph that shows bone loss around roots if there’s been damage from inflammation due to infection in gums; assessing whether you have excessive bleeding when brushing–which could indicate pockets where bacteria can collect near roots; listening for clicking sounds when biting down on hard foods such as apples because this means there may be cracks developing in enamel due to stress placed on them over time; asking about symptoms such as bad breath or sensitivity when eating spicy foods because these could indicate deeper problems below surface level
Why do I need to visit the dentist regularly?
There are several reasons why you should visit the dentist regularly. The first and most important reason is to identify and prevent oral health problems that could lead to tooth loss, infection or loss of function. In addition, your dentist will provide a thorough cleaning and polishing of teeth, check for gum disease and other problems (such as cavities), help you maintain good oral hygiene habits through instruction on how best to brush or floss daily at home and advise on any dental treatment options that may be appropriate for your needs.
A dental checkup and cleaning can help protect your teeth and gums from problems.
A dental checkup and cleaning can help protect your teeth and gums from problems. Regular visits to the dentist are important to ensure that you are maintaining good oral health. While it may seem like a chore, going to the dentist is actually quick and painless! In addition, many insurance companies cover some or all of the cost of regular checkups and cleanings as part of their plan benefits.
So what happens during a dental exam? First, we will talk about any concerns or questions that you have about your teeth or gums before going on with an examination of them using specialized instruments called “otoscopes” (for looking inside the mouth) and hand mirrors (to see hidden areas). Then we’ll take X-rays if necessary so that we can see any decay in between teeth or under fillings where bacteria can hide out until they cause problems later on down road–and even give recommendations based off those findings regarding how often should come back next year/month depending upon what needs done at this point so there’s no surprises later down road when things start getting worse than expected due again partly due lack maintenance over time which leads back up cycle again…
