General Dental Check-Up

It's because keeping your teeth and gums healthy requires frequent medical visits. It's crucial that you work to maintain the cleanliness and health of our teeth and gums in between these evaluations.
And here's some very good news: all medical checkups and sessions at Muskan Dental are FREE. The advantages of check-ups far outweigh any small drawbacks associated with making an appointment, and they will assist you in choosing the best course of action for your dental health.
Regular checkups or choosing not to visit the dentist from all frequently result in complications, pain, and costs that could have been avoided. For instance, untreated, easily preventable dental problems like decay and cavities can harm other teeth, lead to gum issues, or necessitate tooth extraction.

What does a regular Dental Check-up include?

One part of the dental examination includes checking teeth for tooth decay. The dentist will evaluate the health of your teeth and gums. The dentist will also pay special attention to plaque and tartar. The soft plaque can harden on the teeth and irritate the gum tissue. If not treated, plaque can lead to gum disease.

The Dental Examination:

The dentist will assess the health of your teeth and gums by:

  • Examining the gums
  • Looking for signs of gum disease
  • Checking for loose teeth
  • Examining your tongue
  • Checking your bite
  • Looking for visual evidence of tooth decay
  • Checking for broken teeth
  • Checking for damaged fillings
  • Looking for changes in the gums covering teeth
  • Evaluating any dental appliance you have
  • Checking the contact between your teeth
  • Taking X-rays

Frequently asked questions

01. How often should I have a dental checkup?
It is generally recommended to have a dental checkup every six months. However, the frequency may vary based on your oral health condition. Your dentist will determine the appropriate interval based on factors such as your oral hygiene, risk of dental problems, and any ongoing treatments.
02. What happens during a dental checkup?
During a dental checkup, your dentist or dental hygienist will perform a thorough examination of your oral health. They will assess your teeth, gums, tongue, and other oral tissues for signs of decay, gum disease, oral cancer, or any abnormalities. They may also take X-rays, clean your teeth, provide oral hygiene instructions, and discuss any necessary treatments or recommendations.
03. Is it necessary to have X-rays during a dental checkup?
X-rays are an important part of a dental checkup as they allow your dentist to detect dental issues that are not visible to the naked eye, such as cavities between teeth, bone loss, or impacted teeth. However, not all checkups require X-rays. Your dentist will determine if X-rays are needed based on your oral health history, symptoms, and the specific examination findings.
04. Does a dental checkup include a teeth cleaning?
Yes, a dental checkup typically includes a professional teeth cleaning, also known as dental prophylaxis. During this procedure, a dental hygienist will use special tools to remove plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth. They will also polish your teeth and provide guidance on proper brushing and flossing techniques.
05. What can I do to prepare for a dental checkup?
To prepare for a dental checkup, make a note of any concerns or symptoms you may have, such as tooth sensitivity, bleeding gums, or jaw pain. It can be helpful to brush and floss your teeth before the appointment and inform your dentist about any changes in your medical history or medications. Additionally, bring your insurance information and be prepared to discuss your oral hygiene routine and any lifestyle habits that may affect your oral health.
