It is very important that you have a dental checkup every six months in order to be sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy. This is because during a dental checkup, the health of your entire mouth is evaluated and problems can be found early while they are still small, and are easy to treat. When you come to our practice, Pangborn Dental Center, you can receive a thorough dental checkup in Maywood from one of our eight top-notch dentists, such as Dr. Vladimir Meskin.
During a dental checkup in Maywood, the health of your entire mouth will be completely evaluated. It is very important that you come in for biannual dental visits, unless for some reason our dentist recommends that you come in even more often than every six months. This may be the case if you currently have gum problems, or have certain medical conditions. X-rays may be taken which will let our dentist know if you are developing any cavities between the teeth or any problems beneath your gum line. During our dental exams your mouth will also be thoroughly screened for any signs of oral cancer. Your teeth will also be examined to make sure that you do not have any problems such as cracked fillings, or marks being made because you are grinding your teeth at night. Our dentist will always thoroughly evaluate the health of your gums to make sure that you are not developing gingivitis, or gum disease. If our dentist sees that you have gingivitis, he probably will recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. If you have developed deep pockets between your teeth and gums, you are developing gum disease and will most likely need to have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment. This treatment can also be obtained at our office, and will most likely get your gums back to good health.
