What to Expect During Dental Checkup
The first step involves cleaning and polishing your teeth. Typically, this is done using a hand scraper to remove tar from your teeth. Your dentist then uses a rotating rubber brush to smoothen the surface and eliminate remaining stains.
Additionally, the dental hygienist will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your mouth, gums, and teeth. This is done using a special tool that measures the “pockets” between the gums and teeth to determine the presence of cavities, and X-rays to uncover problems underneath your mouth’s surface.
In case a problem is detected, your dentist will either recommend specific treatment or refer you to a specialist who deals with the nature of your dental problems, such as an endodontist, an orthodontist or a periodontist.
