Regular dental exams are an essential part of preventing cavities and gum disease. Dental exams are not only good for your oral health but also for your overall physical health. Some diseases present themselves in the mouth first, so getting a regular exam can help you to catch symptoms of a disease early on. Because of this, it is important for those with natural teeth and those with artificial teeth to schedule regular exams. For dental exams and more, schedule an appointment with us here at Drake Family Dental.
Most adults and children should get a dental exam every six months during their routine cleaning visit. More frequent exams may help prevent serious gum disease or advancing dental decay
In preparation for your dental exam, you only need to know your medical history and allergies before visiting your dentist. These exams can be the difference between the need for invasive dental procedures, and a future of straightforward visits to the dentist.
