What should You Expect from Your Dental Checkup

Posted on 1/24/2022 by Brandon Cooley
What should You Expect from Your Dental CheckupSeveral practices will enable you to maintain good oral health such as brushing and flossing. However, you can still develop oral issues even if you maintain dental hygiene practices. This is because, our bodies are different, and some oral issues can be a result of an allergy and not necessarily neglect on your part. That is why routine dental checkups are important. At our clinic, our experts perform checkups on our patients, to check whether they are developing any oral problems. This is important as it allows for the personalization of a care plan if there are any observable problems.

Expect treatment from experts

Our practice consists of professionals who are qualified in different fields. You can expect our hygienist to examine your oral health initially. They are also responsible for dental cleanings if you will require any dental cleaning. The hygienist will document health issues observed but will diagnose them, as this requires an oral examination from our dentists.

After the checkup by the hygienist, they will refer you to our dentist, who will conduct a thorough oral examination, note any changes in your oral health, diagnose any issues and devise a treatment plan.

X Rays

Expect to have an X-ray exam at your appointment. Our dentist performs dental X-rays to detect any hidden dental issues such as cavities located in between your teeth. This will help in the diagnosing of the dental issue.


You can also expect to get your teeth polished by our experts. This is mainly done to improve the aesthetics of your teeth, which is important in improving your smile.
