Dental Exams Murrieta California

Patients aren’t always aware of what is going on while they’re in the dental chair. All they know is that the dentist is poking and scraping teeth,  and every now and then taking x-rays. It’s not a bad idea to find out a little bit more about the dental exams and why they are important in helping you maintain good health.

These dental exams do more than just take a look at the teeth for possible decay. In oral cancer screening will check for any signs of oral cancer developing in the mouth. The guns are checked for any instance of periodontal disease. That is very important because problems with the gum can lead to serious problems with the teeth themselves. A dentist can immediately detect problems thanks to those dental exams. Something like oral cancer if caught in the first stages is easily treated. The dentist may be the first medical professional to spot that developing in a person. The dentist can alert the patient to what is happening and help the individual make arrangements to have the early stages of cancer addressed. Periodontal disease doesn’t have to destroy a person smile. Early detection through the gum disease evaluations can steer person to the proper oral hygiene.

The x-rays take a look at possible tumors in bone loss that may have happened. Bone loss, by the way, is something that does occur with age. There are a number of dental procedures that can offset any problems caused by bone loss, and the examinations stop problems from growing. Dentists are always concerned about the oral health of their patients. The examinations are all intended to help maintain a healthy mouth which, in turn, ensures a healthy body.

How to Stay on Top of Your Oral Health

A dentist will tell any patient how important it is for that person to take charge of his or her oral health. There’s more to maintaining mouth hygiene than twice a year checkups with the dentist. Routine dental maintenance helps prevent gum disease as well.

Brushing should be done at least twice a day and definitely before going to bed at night. The outer, inner, and biting surfaces of each tooth should receive the scrubbing with a soft bristle brush and toothpaste. Brushing the tongue helps remove bacteria, and with the tip of the brush a person can clean the inside of the front teeth. Flossing prevents the plaque buildup which can lead to gum disease. It also cleans out the spaces between teeth. This doesn’t have to be a rough brushing. Gentle movement of the floss is sufficient to clean out the spaces. Rinsing is a great way to prevent bacteria from causing more than just bad breath.

The home care does not take hours of a person’s day. Just a few minutes every day can make sure that plaque is not building up in the mouth and those harmful bacteria are not present. It is up to the individual to maintain good oral hygiene. Dentists can advise what to do but that’s about it. Poor oral hygiene can result in some very serious consequences. Tooth decay and gum disease can cause stabbing pain in the mouth. Damaged teeth may have to be removed and that can cause problems with digestion. It is better to take a little time to do brushing, flossing, and rinsing than having serious dental procedures being performed in order to save teeth, or to eradicate the presence of gum disease.
