Dental Exams and Checkups in Dumas

Staying Up to Date with Your Dental Health

Having comprehensive oral hygiene habits is crucial to good dental health, but you still need to visit your dentist regularly to get a professional checkup. This will help keep your mouth healthy and prevent a variety of health concerns such as inflammation, decay, or even tooth loss. Dental exams generally happen every six months, but our team at Casa Dental may recommend another schedule based on your medical history, such as the presence of gum disease or multiple cavities, or your lifestyle factors such as smoking. Routine dental examinations play a significant role in detecting any issue early, which allows you to get timely care and minimize future complications.

Casa Dental can perform your routine checkups to make sure you’re up to date with your dental health. Call us today at (806) 835-5030 or use our online form to schedule an appointment.

What to Expect During a Dental Checkup

During a standard dental checkup, we may ask you questions about your oral hygiene regimen and other lifestyle habits. We may also discuss your medical history if this is your first time visiting us or if a significant change that can impact your dental health has happened. 

We will likely take x-rays of your whole mouth to help us look for infection or decay in your teeth and jawbone. We will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums and look for anything out of the ordinary with your lymph nodes and neck. 

The next step is a teeth cleaning that removes surface deposits that require professional dental instruments beyond your usual brushing and flossing. We can also recommend and demonstrate proper techniques for your daily dental care. 

Depending on your situation, we may schedule a follow-up appointment for any additional treatment or procedure.

Benefits of Routine Dental Exams

Going to your dentist twice a year for your routine checkups has many benefits, such as:

  • Preventing plaque, tartar, and cavities
  • Treating bad breath
  • Reducing the risk and development of gum disease
  • Limiting future complications
  • Learning new tips of everyday oral hygiene
  • Screening for oral cancer
  • Detecting systemic health issues 

Many health conditions develop their first symptoms in the mouth, neck, and lymph node areas, which your dentist checks during routine visits. If they find anything abnormal, they refer you to an appropriate specialist.
