What to Expect at Your Appointment
A routine checkup includes both a dental cleaning and a thorough dental exam at our South Jordan, UT practice. During the cleaning portion, a hygienist clears away plaque, tartar, and calculus that can accumulate on your teeth over time. These substances can build up even if you brush your teeth faithfully, which is one reason everyone should have regular dental cleanings.
During the dental exam, the dentist examines your teeth and the soft tissues in your mouth. We take digital X-rays that allow us to check for internal tooth decay. We check for gum disease and early signs of oral cancer. We also assess previous dental work to make sure it remains in good condition. If we notice any dental problems that require further treatment, we will discuss your options with you.
A routine dental visit also gives you a convenient opportunity to ask your dentist and your hygienist any questions you have about your teeth. You can bring up issues such as toothaches, tooth sensitivity, or TMJ. You can also ask us to evaluate you for cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening. We are always happy to answer your questions about your oral health.
