In order to keep your oral health in fantastic shape, it’s important that every patient practices great dental hygiene. What do we mean by that? Well, a lot, actually. We all know that it all starts at home with a great flossing and brushing technique, but there’s a lot more that can be done at our office, too. Patients usually only come in when there is a current problem they’re experiencing or there’s been some type of dental emergency. It’s important to know that simple appointments like a general checkup can help keep your oral health acceptable.
At our office in Hermitage, PA, Dr. Spadafora and the rest of our dental staff are prepared to get your teeth looking and feeling great, and it all begins when you come in for a general checkup. There’s only so much you can see when you open your mouth, so it’s always best to have an extra set of eyes whenever it’s your smile at stake. General checkups are easy, painless and highly beneficial. Hermitage residents can trust Dr. Dale Spadafora and the rest of our dental team to deliver high-quality results and gentle care.
A General Checkup Is Beneficial
General checkups are very important. Great maintenance at home is important, too, but there’s only so much a toothbrush and floss can do. We have the tools, team and talent to help bring you a smile that’s radiant. It’s the easiest procedure we have and is recommended for everyone to participate in at least twice a year, or every six months. Why so soon? Dental disease is something no patient wants to experience, and we will do everything in our power to ensure it stays that way. We can pinpoint problem areas as well as offer valuable tips on how to keep your oral health in great shape.
Here’s what you can expect when you come in for a regular checkup:
- A thorough cleaning and polishing. We use a hand scaler to scrape and remove tartar from your teeth. From there, each one of your teeth are polished with a rubber cup so they look and feel fresh.
- Once the cleaning is completed, we’ll discuss problems that were seen or other helpful information. This is a great time to ask questions concerning proper dental hygiene and how to maintain it.
- We will thoroughly inspect your gums and each tooth to look for possible disease symptoms. Cavities and oral cancer symptoms are usually found during a general checkup.
- We’ll take X-rays if need be. If you’re considering a specific procedure, X-rays can be used to determine whether you’re a candidate for said procedure.
