How Often Should I Go to the Dentist?
When it comes to your oral health, prevention is the greatest form of care. Diagnosing concerns as early as possible can help you receive the treatment you need and reduce costly procedures in the future. Our dentist recommends adults visit our Cordova office every six months for a routine dental checkup.
You should bring your child in for their first exam as soon as their first tooth comes in, or by their first birthday. As your child gets older, their needs will change, and our dentist will recommend a checkup schedule that works for your family.
At Arlington Dental, you can expect a full dental examination at your next checkup. Our team will thoroughly examine your teeth for signs of decay, damage or other concerns. We will check the health of your gums, tongue, cheeks, and other soft tissues. If you have any oral appliances or dental repairs such as fillings, crowns or bridges, we will assess their condition. Finally, we will check your bite to make sure your teeth are lining up correctly.
Once your examination is complete, we will provide an update on your overall oral health and make any recommendations as necessary. We will be sure to help instruct you and your child on good at-home hygiene and maintenance to ensure great health between visits.
Digital X-rays are an important diagnostic tool. We use digital X-rays as part of our checkups to asses the health of your teeth, tooth roots, and jawbones below the surface of your gums. Digital X-rays emit up to 90% less radiation than traditional film X-rays and are safe for children and pregnant women.
