Having regular dental appointments is important for your oral health. We suggest that patients come in for a checkup at least twice a year. Depending on your oral health, you may need to visit our office more often. Our dentists will examine your unique smile and determine your unique needs. It is important that you come to Riverside Dental as recommended because our dentists can detect dental health issues early during these visits. If an issue is caught early, treatment will be less invasive and more affordable. If you come in for your regular checkups, our dentists can prevent some issues from occurring in the first place.
When you come to Riverside Dental for your routine appointment, our hygienist will first thoroughly clean your teeth. Then our dentists or hygienist will examine your teeth and gums thoroughly. They will check your gums for signs of gum disease and other issues. Some diseases, including oral cancer, have symptoms that manifest in the mouth and our dentists will screen for these during your exam. They will decide whether or not you need dental X-rays taken.
Remember that even if you don’t have any symptoms, it is important to see the dentist regularly. You could still have dental issues that are in their early stages that our dentists can diagnose. Also, having regular dental cleanings is beneficial to your oral health.
