Dental Examinationin New Carrollton, Maryland

Many people think that dental examinations are not necessary, as they take excellent care of their teeth and oral health through regular brushing and flossing. This just isn't true! In fact, there are many dental problems that are not visible to the naked eye but can be easily diagnosed during a routine checkup. You should make sure that you visit Dr. Lynn every six months!

How Often Should I Get A Dental Examination?

For most people, visiting us twice a year for a dental checkup is enough. For other high-risk patients, more frequent visits may be required to ensure that their oral health status is closely monitored. Your dentist Dr. Lynn will determine the frequency of your visits for checkups. Some of the high-risk dental patients include:

  • Patients with poor oral hygiene
  • Smokers
  • Diabetics, especially those who have a history of prolonged uncontrolled diabetes
  • Having existing gum or periodontal problems
  • Suffering from diseases that affect the immune system, such as HIV or autoimmune conditions
  • Suffering from underlying chronic medical conditions like hepatitis

What Will Happen During My Routine Dental Examination?

When you visit us for routine dental checkup, we will perform a detailed examination of your teeth, oral cavity, and associated structures like the neck and face. We will note down any underlying dental problems you might be having, and we will inform you about them after the examination, along with recommendations regarding their treatment.

  • Gum Measurement – Your gums will be measured to check for pockets created by calculus buildup. If these pockets are deep enough, it could be an indication of gum disease.
  • Dental Cleaning – In the absence of gum disease, a dental cleaning will be performed by the hygienist during your first visit. This procedure removes calculus build up on your teeth that cannot be removed by brushing. If gum disease is diagnosed, a deep cleaning will be required.
  • Preventive Dental Treatment – In the case of children and adults who are at a higher risk of getting teeth cavities, we will protect their teeth with dental sealants. We will also use fluoride treatment with gels or varnishes to make your teeth stronger and more resistant against teeth cavities.
  • Oral Hygiene Instructions – Our doctor will educate  you on the correct method of brushing and flossing, empowering you to maintain optimal oral hygiene.
  • Dietary Recommendations – You will be provided with information regarding the food choices which are best for your oral health and teeth.
  • Cancer Screening – Another important aspect of routine examinations is that we perform cancer screening during each visit. If any suspicious swelling is found, it is immediately sent for further investigation so that early detection and treatment of oral cancer is possible.

At Metro Dental, our aim is to give a beautiful smile to our esteemed patients. This is only possible if you visit us regularly for dental checkups. Act now and book an appointment with us today. We look forward to seeing you!

The best dental experience I’ve had. The staff were all so kind and willing to help. Really the only con was that the appointment took a bit long but for a very good reason. My dentist was being very careful with me to make the experience as painless as possible. As a plus when you get out of your appointment you can enjoy milkshake.
