Visiting a dental office regularly is a crucial step in helping you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. At the office of Washington Dental Care, we recommend all our patients have a professional dental checkup at least two times a year. Here's what you can expect during a complete dental checkup at Washington Dental Care:
A Full Dental Exam including digital X-Rays: A full oral exam includes a careful assessment of your mouth, lips, teeth, gums, inner cheeks and jaw bone to check for any symptoms of cavities or other oral problems. These exams help us to stay on top of your dental health and administer timely treatment in case any issues are identified. When necessary, we make use of digital X-Rays to detect any oral problems that may not be visible to the naked eye. We also take the time to listen to your concerns and answer any oral health-related questions that you may have.
Oral Cancer Screening: Regular screening our patients' mouths for oral cancer helps us ensure that they are free of this dangerous disease, and in case any symptoms are present, they can be treated at an early stage.
Professional Dental Cleaning (Prophylaxis): Even if you follow a good oral care routine at home, there are several hidden areas in the mouth where your toothbrush and floss cannot reach. A thorough dental cleaning performed by our skilled hygienists can remove food particles, plaque, bacteria and stains from your teeth and make them look and feel clean and fresh.
