Good oral hygiene is key to having a beautiful smile, but we all need help. Regular dental checkups with BridgeView Dental in Austin keep your teeth in smiling shape.
At BridgeView Dental, we believe prevention is the best form of dental care. That is why we are proud to offer regular checkups to families in Austin and the surrounding area. A regular dental checkup will ensure the dental health of your entire family and treat small concerns before they become bigger issues.
The American Dental Association recommends you and your family visit us every six months for a regular dental checkup. Here is what you can expect at your next regular checkup with BridgeView Dental:
Our team will check your entire mouth to evaluate the health of your teeth, gums, cheeks and tongue. We will examine your teeth for signs of decay or damage, and determine the condition of any fillings, crowns or dental bridges you have. Your gums will also be checked for signs of gum disease, gum recession and other concerns.
Compared to traditional X-rays, digital X-rays emit up to 90% less radiation. Digital X-rays allow our dentist to check for signs of tooth, tooth root and jaw bone issues. This is a safe and essential part of your exam that will help us diagnose problems below the gumline.
Early detection of oral cancer can ensure a faster treatment and recovery period for you. We will begin your screening by checking your face, neck, lips, inside of the nose and mouth for visible signs and symptoms of cancer. We will then perform a physical exam to check your jaw, under your chin and around the inside of your mouth.
In the final part of your checkup, our team will thoroughly clean your mouth and freshen your breath. We will remove any built-up plaque and tartar, floss between your teeth and polish the surface of your teeth to restore a brighter, healthier appearance. We will also review any recommended brushing and flossing techniques to ensure your oral health.
