Are Dental Exams Truly Necessary?

We understand that going to the dentist may seem optional, especially if you strictly adhere to a good dental hygiene routine. Unfortunately, even regular brushing and flossing can leave several spots in your teeth and gums untouched.

As long as you maintain that routine, you won’t need more than one to two annual check-ups in most cases, but those check-ups are vital. We use specialized equipment and sophisticated tools to thoroughly examine every space in your mouth, down to the fraction of an inch.

Another, perhaps more pressing, reason you need to schedule regular dental exams lies out of sight and hidden away. As part of a routine dental cleaning at Waterman Family Dentistry, we carry out a thorough examination for any signs of problems such as gum disease and oral cancer. Catching these issues early can prevent tooth decay or tooth loss and improve the outlook of your recovery.

Dental examinations help keep your teeth and gums healthy and act as a sort of insurance against more serious oral conditions. 

What Can I Expect During a Dental Exam?

Our patients choose us—and continue to stay with us—based not only on our expertise and professionalism but also on the patient-focused bedside manner of our entire team. From the moment you walk in all the way to any follow-up care, you can count on friendly, professional service.

During your exam and cleaning, our dental hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth and any build-up between your gums. We’re also happy to apply preventive sealants or fluoride treatments at this stage to help protect your teeth.

Then, we’ll take x-rays of your teeth. Our dentist, Dr. Jennifer Waterman, will review your x-rays and exam your mouth. She’ll go over any problem areas and help you understand the best course of action to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
