Dental Exams and Check-Ups
Your First Visit
During your initial exam, we will discuss your general health history, oral health, and any concerns or areas of pain that you have. We will take digital x-rays and the doctor will perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and other soft tissues of the mouth. In some cases, we may start treatment or perform teeth cleaning during your first visit.
In our office, we use digital imaging to give us a better picture of the structures of your mouth and so that we can better see any potential problems. Digital x-rays produce much less radiation than traditional dental x-rays, thus minimizing radiation risk for our patients. We only take essential x-rays that will assist us in diagnosis and treatment.
Regular Dental Checkups
It is important to have regular dental checkups twice a year so that we can catch small caries and issues with the gums before they turn into bigger problems. Patients who have regular dental exams spend less time in the chair and less money on their teeth in the end.
Whether you are a regular patient or haven’t been to a dentist in many years, we are here to help – please call our friendly team to schedule your dental exam today. Scharrington Dental Phone Number 847-891-9999
