Maintain Long-Lasting Oral Health
Even if your teeth look and feel fantastic, every six months is the best time to visit us at Janet L. Goguen, DMD for a dental checkup. When you visit us for this preventive dentistry visit, we can detect problems early, so your smile remains healthy for many years to follow.
What Happens During A Dental Checkup?
Dr. Goguen and our team will thoroughly examine your oral cavity, looking for concerns or signs of change. Dr. Goguen will then take a more detailed look with the assistance of the following advanced dental technology:
- Intraoral Cameras: We will take snapshots of the interior portion of your mouth through a quick, comfortable process. Dr. Goguen can then more clearly and accurately explain what she sees inside of your mouth, by presenting you with a visual image.
- Digital X-rays: By placing a sensor within your mouth at strategic locations, we can gather 2D images of the inner workings of your oral structure. Digital X-rays offer efficient, comfortable imaging that we can see almost instantly.
Why Should I Schedule Dental Checkups?
During your dental checkup, your dentist, Dr. Goguen, and our team will look for abnormalities or signs of change. This may include cavities, impacted wisdom teeth, lesions, areas of irritation, inflamed gums, or other symptoms that point to an illness or developmental concern. The sooner we identify these changes, the faster we can provide treatment. The quicker we begin treatment, the greater the rate of success.
Do I Qualify As A Candidate For Dental Checkups?
Everyone benefits from a dental checkup. We suggest you visit us twice a year, scheduling a checkup in conjunction with a dental cleaning, for your healthiest smile.
