Dental examinations are your first step to determining the best route to improving your smile. They are the start to great dental health and, if done right, can educate you on ways to improve your smile every day. The first exam at our California dental practice starts off with your visit to our office, where you are greeted by a friendly, professional team member who will help you get comfortable and ready to see what’s inside.
A full review of your medical history, a clinical exam that explores your health and teeth, and a periodontal assessment that will document all areas of gingivitis and periodontal disease is completed next. Then, with an overview of your medical data, and the information we gather from the clinical and periodontal exam, our dental professionals will identify any problem areas and opportunities to improve your dental health. Next, a treatment plan will help organize a clear and effective schedule to get everything done, followed by an evaluation that will highlight improvements and any missing steps.
Everyone can benefit from a general dental examination, especially if it has been more than six months since your last visit to the dentist. You’ll see what has happened to your teeth in that time, and you will also have the chance to learn more about how to keep your teeth in top condition between visits to the dentist with the proper brushing and flossing techniques and how-to’s.
It is important to make dental exams a regular thing, so that every visit is about improving your oral health. You will also receive tips and techniques that will help you improve the way you take care of your teeth in everyday life.
You can take the first step today by scheduling a dental examination at one of our three Modern American Dentistry locations!
