Dental Check-Ups Mean Better Health

It’s an essential part of dental health, but one that far too many people tend to overlook: the dental checkup. If you have been putting off your check-ups because of anxiety over visiting the dentist, fear no more. At Glendale Dental Group, we specialize in providing gentle, anxiety-free checkups for every patient.

Why is it Important to Have a Check-Up Twice a Year?

Having a checkup performed twice a year is the industry standard for good reason. During your routine dental check-up, your dentist may discover issues that you cannot see or feel. This could mean buildups of bacteria that could lead to periodontal disease and painful tooth decay.

When you schedule a checkup with our professional and gentle dentists, we’ll spot and treat such issues before they become larger, painful problems.

A checkup with usually involve just the dentist, or a dentist and dental hygienist. The hygienist will clean and polish your teeth while a dentist will perform an oral examination and diagnose any potential issues, such as gum disease.

Your dental checkup is likely to include x-rays, but it may not. It depends on what your dentist finds during the initial oral examination.

At the end of your checkup, your Glendale dentist will make recommendations for treatment. It might be something you can take care of at home, or one of our dentists may recommend you come back to address cavities, gum disease, infection or other issues.

What Should You Talk About With the Dentist?

Medical History and Health Issues: It’s important to discuss your medical history as well as any current health issues you may be having, even if they are not related to your mouth. This includes any medications you may be taking, as some medications can increase your risk of cavities or gum disease.

Dental Anxiety: If you have certain fears or anxiety about visiting the dentist, your checkup is a great time to talk about this. One of our dentists may recommend sedation dentistry for certain procedures. This method has helped countless patients who would otherwise avoid the dentist because of anxiety.

At Glendale Dental Group, we don’t believe anxiety should keep anyone from enjoying a healthy, pain-free mouth. Our professionals will provide you with the most gentle care possible and do everything to ensure you are at ease during your procedure.
