The Dental Examination
The American Dental Association recommends regular dental examinations every six months for adults and children. The duration of the exam consists of a professional cleaning by our experienced hygienist as well as an exam performed by our Gresham dentist. Dr. Reichlein inspects the oral cavity for tooth decay, signs of gum disease, and looks for any damaged or broken teeth. Additionally, all patients are screened for oral cancer symptoms and temporomandibular joint disorders. The culmination of our exam procedure allows us to access your oral health and create a personalized oral treatment plan specific to your needs.
X-Rays are utilized to ensure your bones and teeth are healthy below the gum line. Typically, we recommend X-Rays to be taken once every year. This helps our Gresham dentist and staff detect cavities, abnormal lesions, and premature bone loss early. The earlier a problem is diagnosed the easier it is to remedy the situation.
At every visit, before any procedure begins, we discuss with you our action plan and how it relates to your oral health care treatment plan. We want our patients to understand the end goal and the steps needed to accomplish that goal. This open communication provides you with information about our services so that you understand how each service will benefit your health.
The leading causes of tooth loss are dental decay and bone loss, or periodontitis. Professional cleanings every 6 months are encouraged so as to prevent or slow the progression of decay, gingivitis, and periodontitis.
Aside from regular cleanings and dental examinations, good oral hygiene at home is essential. Brush your teeth twice each day and floss daily to keep the teeth free of plaque and bacteria. Drinking water and avoiding stain-causing foods are other necessary tactics to keep your gums and teeth in good condition. Talk with our Gresham dentist about any concerns you have at your upcoming appointment, or give our office a call so you know how to properly care for your gums and teeth.
