The Importance of A Dental Checkup
Maintaining a healthy smile should be important to every member of your family. Dental checkups allow our team to examine the teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of complex dental problems. Early diagnosis can reduce your risk of dental health complications such as tooth loss, dental infection, and tooth damage.
Most dentists recommend patients visit their office every six months for a preventive care examination. In some cases, patients may need to visit the office more regularly. Avoiding the dentist can allow a minor dental issue to develop into an advanced dental problem. So not only do regular visits to the dentist keep your smile healthy, but it may also save you time, money, and discomfort in the long run.
Our goal at Infinity Dental in Fox Lake, IL is to help keep each member of your family smiling with comprehensive, patient-focused dental care. We offer a full range of treatment options to help every member of your family improve their smile.
What To Expect During A Dental Check Up
A dental checkup is a positive and informative process. The goal of a dental checkup is to assess the condition of the teeth, gums, and mouth. If necessary, we will recommend any further treatment to restore function and health to your smile.
If time allows, one of our experienced hygienists will perform a dental cleaning. A dental cleaning helps remove plaque buildup on the teeth and gum line. Professional dental cleanings are an essential part of maintaining a healthy smile because it can remove debris that regular brushing and flossing cannot.
A routine dental checkup may include:
- Gum disease screening
- Oral cancer screening
- Dental cleaning
- Screening for cavities
- One-on-one consultation with Dr. Prendergast
- Diagnostic x-rays
