Dr. Tram provides state-of-the-art care for patients of all ages in and around Rancho Cucamonga, CA, including routine dental checkups aimed at identifying disease and other issues as early as possible, as well as helping teeth and gums stay healthy at every age.
A checkup begins with a medical history and a discussion of any symptoms you've been experiencing, followed by a visual exam of your teeth and gums. Your teeth will be carefully cleaned to remove bacteria, plaque and tartar on every surface, and you'll receive guidance on how to improve your brushing and flossing techniques so your teeth and gums stay as healthy as possible. You may also have dental x-rays to provide a more complete picture of your oral health. Next, every tooth will be thoroughly examined and checked for signs of decay and other issues like tiny cracks or chips that need to be repaired. Your gums will be checked for signs of gum disease, and an oral cancer screening will be performed. Finally, you'll learn about recommended treatments to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Both adults and children should see the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and checkup, according to the American Dental Association (ADA). Seeing the dentist twice a year for a checkup helps ensure any diseases or decay are caught as soon as possible so they can be treated to prevent those issues from becoming more serious. Routine checkups and cleanings are essential for maintaining optimal oral health throughout your lifetime.
Yes, having dental x-rays plays a very important role in maintaining oral health throughout your lifetime. Dental x-rays enable the dentist to see the tooth structure that's below the gum line and not visible during visual examinations. Plus, they can provide important information about the health of your jaws as well as detecting issues affecting your tooth roots. Today's dental x-rays use far less radiation than techniques used in the past so your exposure is minimal.
