When we perform a checkup, we want to offer a diagnosis with accuracy and precision. To accomplish this, our team actually implements advanced technology. In today’s blog, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist will explain how we use digital x-rays to offer a more accuracy diagnosis, and help you obtain the treatments you need!
Why You Need a Checkup
The issues that threaten the stability of our smiles, or could cause serious discomfort, such as cavities, infection, gingivitis, and gum disease, take time to develop. Which means attending routine checkups is a chance for us to catch these issues in the early stages, treating them before they progress and cause problems for your oral health. A checkup every six months is a great way to monitor your smile, also watching for issues like oral cancer, TMJ disorder, bruxism, and more. People of all ages, from three and up, benefit from seeing our team every six months for a simple exam.
Digital x-rays use about 80% less radiation than traditional systems. In addition, the images will be available instantly chairside, no need to develop them in harsh chemicals. Instead, we can walk you through the diagnostic process and help you better understand your oral health, and what treatments you will need to preserve the health, beauty, and stability of your smile. We’re proud to offer a greener and more comfortable option for diagnosing your smile with greater precision and accuracy. We then create a treatment plan, crafting restorations and other options to help protect your smile, so you continue to smile and laugh with confidence!
Cleaning Your Smile
During the same visit we also offer a cleaning. While brushing and flossing are crucial, they cannot remove plaque and tartar from the teeth. Unless removed, this bacterial buildup could mean a greater risk of decay and gum disease, as well as teeth stains and bad breath. However, with a cleaning we use an ultrasonic scaling device and a manual tool to break up and remove all buildup before we polish the smile. The process only takes a few minutes, and helps improve your oral health substantially. If you have any questions about our checkup and cleaning appointments, the digital technology we use, or about any of our treatment options, then contact our team today. Let’s work together to help you enjoy your best possible smile in 2021!
