How Often Should I Get a Dental Exam?
Dental exams should generally take place every six months.However, our dental team can determine how often you should be examined. We take the time to speak to you, learning about your personal history, and determining factors which may lead to more frequent visits such as if you smoke, the frequency of cavities, and genetic factors related to tooth, root, and gum decay.
What Can I Expect from my Dental Exam?
A typical dental exam at our Silver Spring dental practice will involve our team thoroughly cleaning your teeth with the latest in dental technology, removing any surface stains (also known as tartar or calculus) that are more difficult to remove than plaque. We will also check for any signs of decay or gum disease. In some cases, an X-ray may be performed to provide a more detailed summary of your oral health and identify any emerging oral problems including oral cancer. We will also examine the state of any existing dental restorations that you may have.
What Can I Expect from my Dental Cleaning?
Dr. Park and his staff will begin your cleaning by carefully cleaning your teeth with a variety of tools to remove any bacteria (plaque) and hardened mineral buildup (tartar) from your teeth. Because we ensure that dental treatments are customized to suit your specific needs, we may then provide further treatments including Fluoride Treatments! Cleanings generally are not painful but if you have any anxiety about your exam, please be sure to let us know! We want to ensure that you and your family are always comfortable at our Silver Spring office.
