A dental checkup is a routine appointment with the dentist to assess your oral health. It is recommended to have a dental checkup every six months, but the frequency may vary depending on the individual’s oral health status. A dental consultation is essential for maintaining good oral health, and here is what you can expect for your dental checkup at Dr Joy Dental Clinics.
Medical history and screening
Our dentist or dental hygienist will review your medical history and ask about any changes in your overall health since your last visit. If you visit us for the first time, they may also screen you for oral cancer by examining your mouth, throat, and neck for any abnormalities.
Dental examination process
Your dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of cavities, gum disease, or other oral health problems. They may use a dental probe to check for soft spots on your teeth that could indicate tooth decay.
Your dentist may take X-rays of your teeth to look for any issues that may not be visible during the visual exam, such as cavities between teeth or problems with tooth roots.
If any issues are identified during your dental checkup, your dentist will discuss treatment options with you and develop a plan for addressing the issue.
Teeth cleaning session
Our dental hygienist will then clean your teeth using advanced teeth cleaning GBT technology to remove plaque and tartar build-up. Once the cleaning is done they may also polish your teeth to remove surface stains.
Guidance on how to maintain oral hygiene
The dentist or dental hygienist will then provide education and tips on maintaining good oral hygiene at home, including brushing and flossing techniques, and may recommend specific products.
Your dentist may schedule a follow-up appointment for any necessary treatments or to continue monitoring any issues identified during the checkup.
Overall, a dental checkup is a comprehensive examination of your oral health to identify and address any issues before they become more serious problems. It’s important to schedule regular dental checkups to maintain good oral health and prevent future issues.
