What Happens During a Dental Exam?

During your dental examination, our dental team will take a look at the condition of your teeth and gums. Our first step is a visual examination to determine if you have tooth decay, damage or cavities that could impact the health of your teeth. We will then check for inflammation of the gums that could be early warning signs of gum disease or infections. If we find any issues, we will let you know right away and will provide you with effective solutions possible for your dental care needs.

Your dental exam will also include a thorough teeth cleaning. This is necessary for a few reasons, which include improving your breath, eliminating pockets of bacteria that could otherwise lead to gum disease and tooth decay and ensuring that your teeth look great and that your smile is as bright as possible. Regular cleanings will allow you to remove plaque and tartar that can sometimes lead to tooth decay and that will often increase your risk of periodontal disease. By working with The Dental Center of South Bend (Dentistry and Braces for Children and Teenagers), you can rest assured that you will get the care you need to maintain the best dental health.
