Your Dental Checkup
During your first visit with Dr. Tang, he will review your medical history and discuss any concerns you may have about your current dental health. If necessary, he will take X-rays to examine your teeth for cavities or other complications.
Next, you will undergo dental scaling or the removal of plaque and tartar that can build up on the surfaces of your teeth. This deep-cleaning process generally takes about a half hour. Your gums may feel moderately sore after completion, but any discomfort will subside shortly after your appointment. If necessary, the basic teeth cleaning will be followed by a root planing, or the cleaning of your teeth below the gum line to treat gum disease. When your gums become inflamed, it becomes easier for plaque to become trapped in these hard-to-reach areas, worsening the health of your gums.
Finally, your teeth will be polished with a small jet of high-pressure water containing baking soda paste, which will wash away residue and plaque dislodged during your cleaning. If necessary, Dr. Tang may give you special instructions on how to care for your teeth on a day-to-day basis to ensure your utmost dental health between visits to his office.
The Benefits of Regular Checkups
Your annual general dentistry checkup isn’t just about achieving impeccably clean teeth. It also gives Dr. Tang the opportunity to prevent any potential problems that can become serious if they remain undetected. X-rays and intraoral camera technology used in our office help Dr. Tang detect cavities, gum disease, and other complications in their earliest stages, allowing you to avoid a complicated, invasive treatment in the future.
In addition to maintaining your oral health, regular dental exams can benefit your overall health. Recent studies suggest that oral infections can put you at a greater risk of experiencing a stroke, as well as developing heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory disease. Establishing a relationship with an experienced, qualified dentist who can administer annual dental examinations is one of the single best investments you can make in your health.
