Please continue reading down below to learn more about dental exams offered at Daniel Dental Studio in Norwalk, CT!

What does a dental examination consist of?


A routine dental examination will consist of the following parts:

X-Ray
At the beginning of your dentist appointment, your dental hygienist will take an up-to-date X-ray image of your mouth. This will help your dentist assess the condition of your teeth, jaw, roots, and facial bones. An X-ray can potentially show signs of tooth decay, bone loss, root canal damage, infections, and more.

Teeth cleaning
The teeth cleaning part of your dental examination will take anywhere from about 30 minutes to an hour. Throughout this cleaning process, your dental hygienist will remove plaque, polish your enamel, clean your gums, conduct a fluoride treatment, and offer advice on how to keep your oral health pristine.

Oral and dental disease screening
Lastly, once your dental hygienist has finished the teeth cleaning, your dentist will screen for oral and dental diseases. They will check your mouth through a physical examination and take a look at your X-ray images. Based on their assessment, they may want to book a follow-up appointment for any necessary treatments.

What are the different types of dental exams?


Different types of dental exams include:

• Routine dental examination
• Comprehensive dental examination
• Cosmetic or aesthetic dental examination
• TMJ examination
• Cancer examination of the head, mouth, and throat
• Occlusal examination
• Salivary examination
• Periodontal examination

How often should you get a dental exam?


It is recommended to get a routine dental examination and cleaning once every 6 months. Depending on your unique situation, you may need to come in for cleanings or checkups on a much more regular basis. For example, someone with invisalign will need to come in about once every four to six weeks while a patient with periodontal disease may need to come in for cleanings once every 3 months. If your teeth and gums are in good health, coming in for two cleanings a year is a perfect amount. If you do notice any abnormalities or symptoms of a tooth or gum disease, schedule an appointment as soon as you can.

Why should I get my teeth cleaned so frequently?


Regular teeth cleanings from early adolescence to adulthood are extremely important. Benefits of regular teeth cleanings include:

• Reduces the risk of gum disease
• Prevents plaque build-up
• Stops your teeth from developing cavities
• Promotes proper oral hygiene
• Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease
• Cleans vulnerable areas of the teeth where plaque gets trapped
• Teaches you how to properly maintain a good oral care routine
• A white, healthy smile equals a happier, more confidence you!
