Regular Dental Exam in Madison
Regular Checkups: An Investment in Your Dental Health
While Oak Park Dental is best known for cosmetic dentistry, we are committed to helping patients keep their teeth and gums healthy. This starts with a regular dental exam and cleaning every six months.
A regular dental checkup not only gives you the feeling of a freshly cleaned mouth; there are many benefits of seeing your dentist often:
Regular exams help avoid more serious problems down the road. Small cavities are much easier to fix than big ones and the earlier we find these problems, the less invasive the treatment will be.
They give Dr. Gyurina the chance to discuss good oral hygiene habits with patients. We'll teach best practices to help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Our dentists are happy to answer questions about new technologies and train you on the best ways to brush, floss, and eat for your oral health.
Frequent dental cleanings help keep your smile radiant and white. Everyday activities can cause teeth to lose their natural shine over time. We can help reduce this impact by removing tartar and surface stains every six months. If you would like a more intensive teeth whitening option, we can help you with that as well.
People who commit to regular dental checkups tend to be more devoted to their dental hygiene. Committing to a regime of caring for your teeth makes it more likely that your teeth and gums will stay healthy longer so they are less likely to need dentures and other extensive work later on.
How Your Dental Exam and Cleaning will Proceed
Dr. Gyurina will do a careful tooth by tooth exam looking for early signs of cavities, cracks or chips, gum disease, and other potential issues. Then you'll receive a thorough cleaning to remove plaque and tartar and leave your mouth feeling refreshed. She may also recommend a fluoride treatment or dental sealants.
If the dentist does find a cavity or cracked tooth, she'll recommend an appropriate treatment. In most cases we'll be able to take care of it right here in our office. Whatever treatment you require, we will strive to make you as comfortable as possible and provide the best dental care in Madison.
Oral Cancer Exam with Your Regular Checkup
Early detection of oral cancer can greatly improve the success of treatment. Dr. Gyurina recommends adults receive an oral cancer screening each year. This is a quick and painless test that can be done during the same visit as your regular dental exam. At Oak Park Dental we use a very reliable screening system called ViziLite Plus.
