Brushing, flossing and doing everything you can but notice changes with your teeth or is your gums looking red or bleeding. These are tell-tale signs that something is not quite right. In general terms they could be discomfort, sensitivity, food trapping between your teeth, broken or chipped teeth, clicking jaws, bite feeling different. Here is something to keep in your mind, most dental problems usually do not produce any discomfort until it gets deeper or spreads around affecting other structures as well. As the saying goes, “Prevention is better than Cure” is the very basis of a dental check-up.
Oral Therapists are trained to pick up on these signs and symptoms and find
ways to manage issues. Dental check-up is a systematic way of documenting what
is picked up during an examination. As a new patient at A2ZDental, the
dentist would conduct a thorough examination of face, lymph nodes in the neck,
Jaw joints, bite, teeth, gums and soft tissues of the oral cavity. The oral
cavity shows signs of medical conditions such as Diabetes, Gastric Reflux and
other gastric problems. As part of the process you would be asked to complete
your medical and dental history. Both the medical and dental history is
available on your dental portal
The Dentist looks for visual and physical signs of issues, photographs of your teeth and gums, dental x-rays to check for any cavities or loss of bone around the roots of teeth along with recording the information is what happens in a dental check-up. Following the check-up, if there are issues noted, the dental team would go over the issues and their solutions and provide you with a treatment plan on achieving optimal dental health.
Overtime, it’s not uncommon for issues to crop up. Simple white lesions noted previously can change are take on other forms which may need to be treated and left untreated can become cancerous. Actively managing issues and problems noted offer the best long term results whether it be a simple cavity or complex issues as a deteriorating bite or oral lesion. These started off as a seemingly simple lesions but then decided to take its own course. Keeping is simple is the most effective management tool for both health and finances
