If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy, then you will want to come to our dental practice, ValleyWide Dental, for biannual dental exams and cleanings. A Palmdale CA dental checkup with one of our expert dentists, including Dr. Robert Haze, will go a long way toward ensuring your excellent dental health.
When a patient comes to our dental practice for a Palmdale CA dental checkup, the health of their entire mouth will be assessed. Our dentist will review your teeth and x-rays to make sure that there are no cavities developing on or between the teeth. Our dentist will also check your teeth for any signs of cracked fillings, cracked dental restorations, or signs of tooth grinding which can appear as chips or even as loose teeth. Your mouth will be thoroughly checked for any signs of oral cancer. Our dentist will make sure that there are no problems developing with your bite which can be caused by TMJ. Our dentist will also examine your gums to make sure that they are healthy and that you are not developing gingivitis or gum disease. If our dentist finds that you have gingivitis, it will be recommended that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. If it is found that deep pockets have developed between your teeth and gums, it means that you have gum disease. At this point, you will need to have a scaling and root planing treatment which will remove all plaque, tartar, food debris, and bacteria from these deep pockets. During this periodontal treatment, any gum infection can be topically treated, or our dentist can prescribe oral antibiotics, as well. Biannual dental exams will make sure that any dental problems are caught early, saving you future time in our dentist’s chair, and saving you money, as well.
