Dental Exams & Checkups in Gilmer, TX
Maintain or Improve Your Oral Health Through Routine Dental Exams & Checkups
Routine dental exams and checkups are important when it comes to maintaining and restoring good oral health. Although it may seem sufficient to brush and floss and upkeep your teeth and gum health at home, it’s still necessary to book a dental appointment at least once every 6 months, or more frequently if you have gum health concerns. That’s because regular checkups do more than address less-than-white teeth or bad breath. Rather, they are meant to monitor your oral health for problems like gum infections or tooth decay. By identifying and addressing these oral health problems early, it prevents any issues from becoming worse, not to mention more costly, to treat.
What to Expect at Your First Appointment
Your first visit is a time for our team to get to know you, but also for you to get to know our team. We encourage you to ask questions, voice any concerns, and share any information you want us to know about your dental goals. Even if you haven’t been to the dentist regularly in the past few years, please don’t worry. Our staff is nonjudgmental and proud that you’ve made a good decision to prioritize your oral health now.
You can expect the following at your first visit:
- Full-mouth digital X-rays
- A comprehensive oral exam of your teeth, gums, mouth, and jaw
- A noninvasive oral cancer screening
- Dental cleaning, if time allows (some patients need a deeper cleaning that will be performed at a follow-up appointment)
- Discussion of your treatment plan
