The dental care team at Acadia recommends that you visit the dentist at least once every year for a dental exam. Doing so gives your dentist a chance to address existing oral health issues and identify any potential problems before damage is done and costly treatments are required.
EARLY DETECTION IS KEY
Many oral health problems begin without symptoms and can only be detected in early phases by a professional. During a routine dental exam, your dentist will inspect your mouth for any damaged teeth, eroded enamel, and early signs of tooth decay or gum disease. They also check the condition of fillings or other prior dental work and make sure that everything is still working as it should. Digital radiography during your checkup allows your dentist to gather a more complete picture of your oral health status and detect any changes to your oral health that may have been missed during the visual inspection.
Patient education is an essential component of preventive care. As a patient, you need to understand the findings of your checkup so that you can make informed decisions about your oral health—ask questions and make your oral health care plan a collaboration between you and your dentist.
