Everyone needs to have regular dental exams, no matter the state of their oral health. Our extreme makeover dentist in Los Angeles recommends that patients visit their dentist for a professional cleaning and oral exam twice a year. This exam gives your dentist the opportunity to monitor the health of your teeth and gums. This is important because many oral problems are too small for you to detect in their early stages. Most dental issues are not noticeable by patients until they progress into advanced stages. By this time, they are more difficult to treat than if they had been caught early.
Ideally, at this appointment, your teeth and gums will be found in good shape and you will say goodbye to your dentist until your next scheduled visit. But if there are any issues, such as early signs of tooth decay, gum inflammation or even oral cancer, this appointment will give your dentist the opportunity to spot and address them before they advance into more serious problems.
If it has been more than six months since your last oral exam, contact us to schedule an appointment with our expert in dental exam in Los Angeles.
