A: While you hopefully brush your teeth at least twice a day, even the most stringent home oral hygiene regimen can’t completely prevent the buildup of plaque. Much more importantly, dental patients themselves will rarely be able to spot the early warning signs of dental caries forming, nor know how to spot the early signs of gum inflammation or other oral abnormalities.
Thankfully, a routine examination can help spot the earliest signs of cavities forming and/or more complex gum concerns. This is why during your next routine examination, your Sloan dentist will:
Take a full dental chart of your teeth and assess each tooth's condition
Check for gums for signs of inflammation and the onset of periodontal disease
Check your occlusion (bite) and jaw movability
Check the stability of existing filled teeth, veneers, crowns and bridges
Assess your need for replacement or restoration of decayed teeth
If necessary, take X-rays to check for hidden oral health problems
A: Did you know that even minor gum inflammation can be indicated if diabetes?
At Sloan Dental, our dentists use routine examinations as an opportunity to check for signs of everything from tooth decay to oral cancer. This is important as detecting such problems early is vital. In fact, because gum disease itself is the leading cause of tooth loss in the UK, a simple routine examination can save you thousands in the long term.
