What is a Dental Check Up?

In the process of a dental treatment, you go to a dental office and the first person you will meet is the receptionist who will ask you your reason for coming. An available dentist will be sought to help you with your dental needs. When an appointment is fixed for your dental checkup, you will then meet the dentist. Considerable time will be spent with the dentist to make sure that you tell them about your condition and ask as many questions as you want.

the dental hygienist will go through your medical history before any procedure can be done to your mouth. The dentist should know if this is your first dental check up or not. The reason for this is to help them determine whether there are any changes in your overall health or not. Telling the hygienist about your health concerns, anxieties, and allergies is important for this reason. If he dentist know this, he will be able to decide what course of action to take for the right help.

While sitting for dental check up, inform your dentist about your fears. If you start shivering at the sound of the drill, the dental team will have a difficult time to perform any surgery or procedure. There is nothing wrong with being scared of a dentist. In order for the procedure to go smoothly, the dentist will try to calm you done.

They will start working on your teeth once the concerns and anxieties are shared. Teeth cleaning is the first step that is taken during any dental check up. A scraper is used by the dentist to be able to remove the build up or plaque and tartar. Dentists use a tooth polisher and slightly abrasive toothpaste so that the teeth will have a white and shiny finish. When there is leftover plaque, it can easily be removed when the dentist starts polishing your teeth. There is no more plaque accumulated when the teeth has become smooth after polishing.

After cleaning our teeth, the inside of your mouth is examined for problems. The dentist uses a metal probe with a small angled mirror to see behind and between the teeth and gums. This will help them in checking how soft the enamel and dentin is. The dentist will also check for gum swelling, mouth sores, and redness. Measuring the periodontal pockets is another important procedure in a dental checkup. If the pocket is any deeper than one and three millimeters then you are suffering from gum disease.

Dental x-rays are then taken to examine deeper the surface of the mouth. After checking everything including the x-rays the dentist will determine what is next. The results of the x-ray will help them to see whether there are any bone loss, fractures or any sort of abnormality within the visible surface of the gums.
