A comprehensive exam and cleaning is the first step to a healthy mouth. A healthy mouth is the first step to a healthy you! Something we hear all the time here at Dayspring Dental is “That was the most thorough check up and cleaning I have ever had!” We spend a great deal of time getting to know each of our patients. In these days of managed care, long waits, and quick doctor visits, we believe that one of the things missing in health care today is time, attention, and listening. We also know that your mouth provides a small window to your entire body. Healthy teeth and gums help keep your entire body healthy. Unhealthy teeth and gums often hint at systemic conditions like diabetes. So, it is of utmost importance to make sure your mouth stays healthy.
Your visit begins with x-rays to show any hidden problems. Next we will do a head and neck/oral cancer exam. Oral cancer results in about 150,000 deaths every year! The earlier it is caught, the better. We then move on to checking your teeth and gums. We will discuss any concerns you have such as missing teeth, misaligned or discolored teeth, jaw pain, etc.
