Periodic Exam

Dentist in Antioch, TN

Periodic Exam

A periodic dental examination is as vital as your overall health check. You should visit your dentist at least once in six months to ensure your dental health is at its best. During a periodic exam, your dentist will check your oral conditions thoroughly and search for decays or other issues like oral cancer signs. If they find anything suspicious, they might ask you to go through additional tests that elaborately reveal your health conditions. Periodic exams also include cleaning your teeth and gums professionally to prevent the potential causes behind any dental or gum problems. If you have had any oral treatment like dental fillings in the past, periodic exams are a great time to check if everything is working fine.

Benefits of a periodic dental examination

A regular periodic checkup consists of five steps that make your overall dental health a lot better. It starts with a thorough oral evaluation to see the signs and symptoms of any potential problems. If you have any questions or things to tell your dentist, do go ahead with that. Once the investigation is complete and found no oral issues, they would proceed with the professional cleaning, which is vital to keeping your teeth healthy and white. In case of any potential problem, they would either go ahead with further investigation or carry out necessary medical procedures to make things better.

Once the dentist has cleaned your teeth, they might carry out another examination to ensure the condition. During this time, they would also educate you on maintaining your oral hygiene and the best practices to keep your oral health in place.

Things to do in between the visit

There is usually a gap of six months between your visits to the dentist, so it is essential to take proper care of your dental health at that time. Apart from brushing and flossing twice a day, use mouthwash and avoid sweet sticky food as much as you can.

Had an emergency extraction, went very well. I found them through 1Dental, a company that Dave Ramsey recommended on his website. They apparently have new ownership…. Very professional and accommodating. The office looked spotless and Kesha Burns, the dentist, was really great, I felt very relaxed in her care, and everything went perfectly. Thrilled they were able to fit me in at the last minute. I will definitely go back.
