When visiting our Dental Clinic for a check-up, there are a few things that will typically happen. If you don’t have any existing dental concerns or conditions, the first step is usually dental X-rays. Your medical and dental history, your age, and your current oral health will determine how often you need these. Dental X-rays help us find and diagnose tooth decay hiding between the teeth and other places hard to see with the naked eye. We also identify dental and orthodontic issues beneath the gums.
Next, our hygienist will begin cleaning your teeth. We use a small metal tool called a scaler to scrape away any tartar in between the teeth and around the gumline. Then we’ll polish your teeth using a lightly abrasive paste and a polishing tool. This gives your teeth a nice, deep clean and removes any remaining tartar. We finish the cleaning off with flossing.
Once our hygienist is done, it’s the Dentist’s turn. We’ll review your X-rays, check your teeth and gums for signs of decay and gum disease, measure the depth of your gingival pockets, check for swelling and redness, test how well your teeth come together when you bite down, and examine your neck, lymph glands, and mouth for signs of oral cancer. When we finish, we’ll discuss treatment for any dental work you need and give you tips on improving your daily dental care routine.
Even for people with great oral health habits like brushing twice a day for two minutes and flossing daily, visiting the dentist every six months is crucial to maintaining good oral health. The reason for this is that dental problems don’t go away on their own and tend to get worse, which also makes them more difficult (and expensive) to fix. Regular dental checkups catch problems early so that more intense treatment doesn’t become necessary.
Whether it’s been six months or longer since the last time we saw you, we’re looking forward to seeing you again! Schedule your next dental appointment in Acapulco right away, and we can make sure everything in your mouth is healthy and clean!
