As a new year is approaching, you may be considering ways to improve your health. Visiting your dentist for routine dental cleaning in Bellflower, CA is an excellent way to support a healthier way of living. Regular professional teeth cleanings help to prevent oral infections and diseases that could affect your overall health.

What to Expect During Your Visit

Your dentist will take the proper measurement when it comes to diagnosing the health and condition of your teeth and gums and bones prior to coming up with a treatment plan and a regimen for your cleaning. In addition to studying the X-rays and the level of the bone and tartar buildup, periodontal probing is also done to make sure there has been no attachment loss between the gums and the teeth.

Depending on these findings, proper diagnosis as far as the type of cleaning and the frequency of cleaning are made during the consultation appointment. Since periodontal disease is the number one reason for tooth loss in adults over the age of 30, proper dental cleanings and diagnosis are key in making sure you hold on to your teeth as long as possible.

Many dentists rely on digital x-rays to give them the best picture of their patient’s oral health. It has become common practice to offer x-rays during a routine dental exam and cleaning appointment, so how are digital x-rays better than traditional ones?

Understanding Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays use lower dosage radiation and ensure the highest quality of care is being delivered. Dental x-rays are pictures of the teeth, the bone, and the surrounding soft tissue and help in diagnosing the root cause of the dental problems. Usually, a full set of x-rays are taken at the initial appointment in order to give a comprehensive evaluation, and follow up x-rays are taken every 6 months to a year as necessary in order to update the treatment plan, check on the quality of work previously done, and help diagnose and detect newly formed decay or problems.

In addition, digital x-rays are more detailed and have lower radiation compared to the conventional film x-rays and are easily stored and can be transferred to other dental professionals if needed in diagnostic aid.

For many patients, avoiding routine dental care is common.  Fortunately, understanding what to expect during an oral exam and cleaning can help deter any anxiousness.  Before beginning your dental exam, your dental team will walk you through what will happen during your visit and answer any questions you may have about your exam or cleaning.

The Steps

During your oral exam, your dentist will perform a comprehensive head and neck exam which will include an oral cancer screening. The detection of many systemic diseases and oral cancers can be done by your dentist, and early detection is key to a good prognosis when it comes to many diseases. A comprehensive exam is not only limited to the evaluation of your teeth but will also include the remaining oral cavity such as the inside of your cheeks, tongue, TMJ, occlusion, the roof of your mouth, and your gingiva which can all be involved in the presence of many systemic diseases and cancers.

During your dental exam in Bellflower, CA, your dentist will also record your vital signs such as blood pressure to make sure that your overall health is in a good condition. In many occasions, your dental team has diagnosed patients with high blood pressure to refer to their general medical doctor for followups. Many dentists believe to treat oral health we need to treat the entire body first.
