Dental Check Ups

Is a Dental Check Up That Important?

Just like your routine medical check up, a regular dental check up is just as important. A regular dental check up maintains good, defensive dental care and protects your oral health and general well-being. By scheduling a regular dental exam, you allow Advanced Dental Care the opportunity to offer guidelines on caring for your teeth and the opportunity to detect any problems or looming problems. Dental problems are most treatable in their early stages; therefore, Advanced Dental Care recommends you schedule and keep your dental check up. It really is that important!

Is a Dental Check Up Once a Year Sufficient?

Based on the recommendation by the American Dental Hygienists' Association, good preventative dental care requires adults to schedule dental exams every six months; however, Advanced Dental Care may recommend you schedule more dental check ups, depending on your individual dental needs. Please note that even if you are a denture wearer or no longer have your natural teeth, it is still very important to schedule regular dental exams to maintain good oral health.

Dental Check Ups with Advanced Dental Care

Your first step in preventive dental care is to schedule regular dental check ups. Once you are at the office, the process for your dental check up begins by Dr. Koch or one of his hygienists to clean your teeth. Next, they will thoroughly check for any gum inflammation or bone loss. During your dental check up, they also evaluate your risk for developing tooth decay and any other underlying oral health problems. You may find it odd they examine your face, neck, but they are looking for any abnormalities in structure. Most times, a dental check up includes dental X-rays or additional diagnostic procedures based on the preliminary check up.

You should not be surprised if Advanced Dental Care asks about your diet and oral hygiene routines. Sometimes your habits unknowingly contribute to poor oral health. They may also want to demonstrate for you proper brushing and flossing techniques. Sometimes your hectic schedule may prevent adequate preventative measures. Dr. Koch may also discuss with you other topics during your dental exam including

In addition to Dr. Koch asking you questions about your dental routines, your dental exam allows you the chance to pose questions about oral health care to him or with your Advanced Dental Care team member. You also have the opportunity during your dental exam to express your dental health care concerns. For instance, if you suffer from dental anxiety or dental fears, ask Advanced Dental Care about sedation dentistry for your dental check up. By using sedation dentistry, Dr. Koch lessens your anxieties or dental fears, and your dental check up becomes a routine, pleasant experience.
