Oral Exams

An oral Exam is an essential part of your oral health care. You need to have your teeth checked to make sure that they are healthy, as well as to identify any problems that may need to be addressed. If you need to have your teeth cleaned, then you should contact our professional team to ensure that you get the treatment you need.

ROUTINE CHECKUPS AND PROFESSIONAL DENTAL CLEANINGS

Dental checkups and professional dental cleanings are essential to the overall health of your mouth. They help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. These problems can have a severe impact on your oral and general health. During a routine dental checkup, Our dentist will evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaw joints. He or she will also perform a thorough dental clean to remove plaque and tartar buildup.

It is important to visit a dentist at least once every six months to maintain a healthy smile. By visiting regularly, you are able to detect small problems before they develop into major issues. This can save you time and money. If you have dental problems, our dentist will be able to identify the problem, diagnose it, and recommend an appropriate treatment. Our dentist may also suggest a plan for preventing future dental problems. Depending on your needs, you may be referred to a specialist.

There are many different dental checkups available. Our dentist will examine the area of your mouth to look for any signs of oral cancer, broken fillings, tooth decay, and other conditions. The dentist will also look for early warning signs of gum disease.

Early detection of problems is the best way to ensure that treatments can be administered quickly.

Professional dental cleanings in South Plainfeild can also improve your overall health and wellbeing. This is because dental cleanings can prevent plaque and tartar from building up on your teeth.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF DENTAL X-RAYS?

Dental X-rays are important in detecting and diagnosing oral health issues. This can help prevent unnecessary pain and problems. It can also save you money. To ensure you receive proper care, it is important to know what types of x-rays are available. When you first visit us, you will most likely need to have x-rays performed. These will give us information about your teeth, bones, and other parts of your mouth. The dental X-ray will usually be taken in the same room as the dental treatment you are having.

A dental X-ray can help detect cavities, root canals, cysts, abscesses, and other problems. Our dentist can then make a recommendation on how to treat these conditions. They can also check for changes in the bone around your teeth. There are several different types of dental X-rays. Each type is used for different dental needs. While some patients only need to have X-rays once a year, others may need to have them more frequently. X-rays are very easy to perform, and you can expect to be in and out of the office in a few minutes.

Some people need bitewing x-rays, which are designed to help the dentist identify cavities. Bitewing x-rays are usually taken in sets of four, and they can be a helpful tool for early detection of decay. Panoramic X-rays use more radiation, but they provide a three-dimensional view of the anatomy surrounding your teeth. Panoramic X-rays are very good at detecting abscesses.

Cephalometric X-rays are often used in orthodontic treatments. Cephalometric X-rays can help our dentist detect certain problems with your jaw, including airway, TMJ, and cancer. These types of x-rays can also show impacted teeth. Other types of X-rays include extraoral x-rays and intraoral x-rays. Extra oral x-rays can help our dentist find dental issues in the jaw, skull, and skull bone. Intraoral x-rays are used to see the inside of your mouth, where there are less dense structures. In addition to using x-rays, our dentist can also check the condition of your salivary glands. Sialography involves injecting a dye into the salivary glands, which allows the technician to visualize them.

WHAT DO DENTAL X-RAYS SHOW?

Dental x-rays are a great way to see if you’re missing teeth, have gum disease or other dental problems. This is an important preventive method of dental care, and can save you time and money. X-rays can also show hidden signs of damage and decay, so it’s important to keep up with them. X-rays are made with electromagnetic waves, and these waves pass through soft tissues and bones in your mouth. Our dentist uses these x-rays to diagnose dental issues and treat any abnormalities. The x-rays can help detect cavities, tumors, abscesses, and other oral diseases. They can also show if there are any areas of infection.

X-rays can be uncomfortable, but they can be very helpful to your dental health. During the procedure, you’ll be asked to position your mouth in a specific position. You may also have to remove jewelry or a lead vest to ensure you’re a safe patient. These x-rays provide a deeper look at the inside of your mouth than is possible with a visual exam. X-rays are a necessary part of preventive dentistry because they can help us to locate an object that might cause injury. They can also identify impacted teeth, cysts, and other problems.

Depending on the type of x-ray you need, you may have several images taken to examine specific areas of your mouth. For example, if you need to have a tooth removed, Our dentist may order a series of periapical x-rays to look at the roots of your teeth. In addition, a new dental professional might ask for old X-rays so that they can get a better understanding of your teeth. Your dentist will also use X-rays to check for the development of your permanent teeth.

X-rays can also help your dentist see if you’re impacted by a wisdom tooth. They can also help us toF determine if you’re missing teeth or need orthodontic treatment. X-rays can reveal early dental problems so that you can avoid more severe health problems in the future. Dental x-rays are also useful in identifying dental implant materials.

If you've lost a tooth due to injury, decay, gum disease, or any other reason, we recommend dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dental implants come the closest to replicating the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth.

 
 

Absolutely! Both flossing and brushing regularly are equally important to maintain your oral health. While brushing cleans the surface of your teeth, flossing cleans in between them. Flossing is important to prevent plaque buildup, which can cause gums to recede and lead to periodontal disease.

 

Even if you have dentures, it is still necessary to see a dentist! Dental checkups help ensure that your dentures are comfortable, fitting properly, and that there are no other problems. Beyond assessing your dentures, our dentist will also perform a thorough examination of the jawbone, and surrounding soft tissues both inside the mouth, the face, and neck, to confirm that you remain in good oral health.
