When you schedule a dental check-up and exam with our Summerville dentist, you should expect for Dr. Thomas Riley to examine your teeth, gums, and oral cavity for symptoms of tooth decay, inflammation, infection, gum disease, and any dental abnormalities. At Azalea Dental, we believe that the best dentistry is preventative—it's easier to prevent or treat minor issues than to fix long-standing oral health problems.
During your dental cleaning, you will receive a thorough tooth cleaning that removes plaque, tartar, and debris from your tooth surface. We may recommend fluoride treatment or dental bonding to aid and protect weakened teeth.
Benefits of Regular Dental Exams
Some of the benefits of regular dental examinations include:
- Detect cavities early to prevent more invasive and expensive dental treatment.
- Diagnose oral disease and systemic disease that may present in the oral cavity.
- Detect susceptible “plaque traps” that could benefit from sealants or other preventative treatment.
- Detect fractures in teeth BEFORE they break and become painful.
By getting routine dental check-ups in Summerville, you benefit your health and well being. Dental exams are integral in identifying and diagnosing any issues and treating them early before they grow into costly monsters. You also benefit from walking away with polished and fresh teeth and gums, which is a uniquely satisfying feeling.
Prevent tooth decay and other oral issues before they even happen!
