Preventative Dental Checkups Oxnard, CA

At See Me Smile Dental of Oxnard we want to provide you with the healthy, shining smile that you deserve. The best way to take care of your smile is with good oral hygiene habits at home and regularly scheduled dental checkups. Routine checkups are an important part of your dental health care and are important for your dental health care team to develop a custom plan that fits your needs.

Why Are Dental Checkups Important?

Dental checkups are essential for allowing your dental team to identify oral health problems early. You should have regular dental checkups even if you do not have current dental health issues. Your dental health is directly connected to your overall health. During a dental checkup your dentist will check for multiple oral health issues to help you live a happier and healthier life.

Tooth Decay and Cavities

During your dental checkup your dentist will check for any signs of tooth decay or cavities. When left untreated, tooth decay can cause pain and even loss of your tooth. The sooner it is identified the easier it is to treat. It is often less costly to treat early signs of tooth decay before more extensive procedures are necessary.

Oral Cancers

Your dentist will also examine your mouth, jaw, and neck for signs of oral cancers. These cancers can become serious and even life threatening. It is important that any sign of cancer be identified as early as possible so that treatment can begin immediately. Fortunately, oral cancers are usually treatable when discovered in the early stages. During your checkup your dentist will look for any signs of oral cancers and recommend follow-up procedures should any causes for concern be identified.

What Can I Expect at A Dental Checkup?

Your dental checkup will be tailored to your personal needs. Because no two patients are exactly alike, you can expect that no two dental exams will be alike either. However, there are general steps in every dental exam that you can expect:

Review of Medical History

A member of the See Me Smile Dental of Oxnard team will discuss your medical history with you. You will be asked about any previous or current health issues as well as concerns you may have. You will also be asked about your diet and any medications you may be taking.

Discuss Questions or Concerns About Your Oral Health

Your dental team will ask you about any questions or concerns you may have regarding your oral health. This allows them to specifically look for any issues that may be affecting your mouth or teeth as well as inform them if any additional procedures may need to be performed.

Perform An Oral Exam

Your dentist will perform an examination of your mouth and teeth. A visual examination of teeth and gums will be performed, as well as a visual check for signs of cancers. Your dentist will also check the alignment of your teeth, the development and set of your jaw, and look for any signs of tooth decay or gum disease.

During the exam your dentist may determine that digital x-rays are necessary. X-rays can be used to assess areas that cannot be easily seen like between or inside teeth.

Create A Treatment Plan

After the exam your dental team will discuss treatment plans with you to help keep your mouth healthy. Treatments may include additional dental procedures and dental office visits. Often a treatment plan will consist of healthy routines and procedures you should do at home to keep your mouth and teeth healthy.

Schedule Your Next Appointment

The last step of your dental checkup will be scheduling an appointment for your next one! You should see your dentist for a routine checkup at least twice a year and more often if you are receiving treatment for current dental issues.
