The health industry strongly suggests that you schedule a dental evaluation every six months. These exams and checkups ensure that you remain proactive in your preventive dental care. They are necessary at any and all ages. By being proactive together we can identify potential issues earlier versus being reactive and chasing a damaging problem that results in expensive dental care in the future.

Regular Dental Exam and Checkup Expectations

Generally speaking, all patients can expect most of the following procedures during a six-month checkup:

  • Initial evaluation-An overall review of your teeth, gums, cheeks, tongue and palette to immediately see if anything is abnormal.
  • A current set of x-rays- To give us the ability to monitor the health and condition of your teeth and jawbone below the gum line. This identifies any root decay. It will also identify tumors, cysts and abnormal growths. The x-rays are crucial in building an oral history of your mouth as you age.
  • Existing Restorations- With specialized tools we will inspect restorations; like fillings, crowns and other tooth replacements or restorations for conditioning.
  • Oral Cancer Screening- a close scrutinization of tissues looking for any signs of cancer that would need to be investigated further.
  • Surface Deposits- We would work to remove any deposits or stains on the surface of the tooth.
  • Teeth Cleaning- The best part of the dental exam and checkup. We will scale all of your teeth removing damaging plaque that has stuck to your teeth. We will work on the hard to reach areas in the back of your mouth and the surfaces between teeth.
  • Deep Cleaning-If we see the onset of any gum disease the scaling may need to go below the gum line to remove the plaque that is infecting the soft tissue.
  • Fluoride Treatment- We will determine together if you would benefit from this simple and quick treatment.
  • Self-care demonstration- By the condition of either your teeth or gums we will be able to make suggestions on how you can either introduce or improve some of your hygiene habits at home. For example, you brush well but are not fond of flossing so we can see the additional plaque between the teeth. We can suggest other small tools to use instead.

Maintaining Proper Prevention and Good Oral Hygiene between Exams

Our exams will go quicker and have even better results if you start at home. The dental industry also strongly suggests that we all brush our teeth twice a day, for two minutes at each time. Then flossing at least once a day is the basis for a good oral hygiene practice at home. This will remove the bacteria carrying plaque daily not allowing it to form on the teeth. The plaque is the culprit behind cavities and gum disease. Prevention is the ticket in the dental business. We like to see patients with healthy teeth and gums. We are also advocates of helping you keep your natural teeth for your lifetime. This can be done together. We might ask you to share your diet and what you might be fond of. Maybe it is your morning coffee or tea, your soda at lunch or your red wine in the evening. Maybe you have a sweet tooth and love your daily cookie or ice cream. We will develop an awareness together of these items that deliver an excessive amount of sugar to the surface of your teeth.

The Costs Involved with Dental Exams and Checkups and the Insurance Coverage Available

The costs that will be associated with your dental exam and checkup will be discussed at the time of your evaluation and consultation. We will start with the simple evaluation and a regular cleaning and then go from there. There might be exceptions pertaining to individual circumstances based on any diagnostic testing. The administrative staff at Bourbonnias Family Dental will inquire with your dental insurance carrier to determine the amount of coverage for the procedure. If there will be a balance due a payment plan can and will be discussed if that is your wish. We also accept all major credit cards. We may also revisit our options if the budget is a driving factor in carrying out our plan. This is us working together in being proactive with your care.
