What Does a Routine Dental Appointment Look Like?
At our routine appointments, we provide dental cleanings and detailed examinations. It is important for patients to schedule these routine care appointments so we can keep track of their oral health and any developing dental problems.
A dental visit typically includes:
- Dental x-rays
- Professional dental cleaning
- Gum disease screening
- Dental cavity screening
- Oral cancer screening
Our dental hygienists perform thorough dental cleanings to remove bacteria and plaque from around the teeth and gums. They use special dental tools to treat hard-to-reach areas of the mouth for a deep clean. Scaling and root planing may also be performed at routine oral health visits if there are signs of developing gum disease. These treatments are used in tandem to remove plaque from beneath the gums and smooth down the tooth roots. Scaling and root planing can treat the early signs of gum disease to prevent it from progressing.
We may also use x-rays to take images of the teeth and gums. If patients have current dental concerns, or if we find problems during an examination, our dentists may give a treatment recommendation. During a consultation, patients can ask any questions about their treatment options or symptoms.
What Are Oral Cancer Screenings?
During an oral cancer screening, one of our dentists will conduct a thorough examination for abnormalities in the face, neck, lips, nose, and mouth. With a tongue depressor, they will also examine areas of the gums, throat, roof of the mouth, inner cheek, and tongue. Ulcerations, bumps, swelling, patches, or discoloration can denote signs of developing oral cancer. One of our dentists may also feel the neck or face for masses or bumps. If they do find any signs of oral cancer, they will complete a biopsy.
Developing signs of oral cancer include:
- Swelling inside of the mouth
- Difficulty swallowing and speaking
- Red and white patches in the mouth
- Unexplained fever
- A persistent sore throat
- The feeling of something stuck in the throat
Contact our office as soon as possible if you have noticed these symptoms. We want to ensure that all of our patients receive the care they need in a timely manner. Not visiting the dentist soon enough can increase your likelihood of oral cancer developing.
