Benefits of Dental Exams
During a dental check-up, the dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and oral and facial structures to get the full picture of your oral health.
We can detect issues like tooth decay, gingivitis and oral cancer early on. At this point, treatment is more likely to be successful. It will also be less invasive and expensive.
We’ll give you personalized recommendations based on your unique needs to help you take your homecare routine and oral health to the next level.
What is a dental exam?
When our Vancouver general dentist, Dr. Sonia Sahi, performs an oral examination, she looks closely at your teeth, gums and oral tissues. She also checks your head and neck. This visual exam, in conjunction with digital x-rays, lets her detect signs of tooth decay, gum disease, oral cancer, faulty dental restorations and more.
Are dental exams really that important?
Yes! Dental check-ups are considered preventative care. They give your dentist the opportunity to identify where you’re doing great with your oral hygiene and where you could use a little improvement. The dentist can then team up with you to create a personalized homecare routine for outstanding oral health.
As with any type of health concern, oral health issues are best detected early and that’s only possible with regular dental exams. Sometimes, like in the case of very early tooth decay or gingivitis, we can stop or reverse the problem. Even if we can’t, treating a cavity when it’s very small is easier and less expensive. Waiting until it actually hurts can mean needing a large filling, a dental crown or even an extraction.
What happens at this appointment?
We offer dental check-ups in Vancouver for kids, teens and adults. When you visit our Fraser Street dental studio, you’ll receive a warm welcome. A team member will take you or your child back for digital x-rays, if necessary.
Dr. Sahi will then conduct a comprehensive oral exam. She’ll chat with you about her findings, answer any questions you have and provide you with personalized recommendations to give your oral health a boost. You’ll leave our office with some cool swag and confidence knowing your smile is in good hands.
