Exam and X-Rays
The American Dental Association recommends that most people receive a dental exam every six months. Good dental health requires the right balance of at-home dental hygiene and care, good dental habits and routine dental checkups. Our Los Angeles exam expert offers comprehensive dental exams that help support holistic health and keep your smile strong.
Exams Los Angeles
At your dental exam, our expert in exam in Los Angeles will visually examine your smile for signs of problems. Because your smile is intricately connected with your whole body, this evaluation is critically important. We will evaluate not only the teeth but also the soft tissues of your mouth. Certain symptoms, such as sores, thrush, patches and dry mouth may indicate the presence of more serious health problems.
X-Rays Los Angeles
Dental X-rays may be taken annually depending on your personal needs. Our Los Angeles X-rays expert understands the need for safety and will take all necessary precautions to minimize your exposure. We also offer digital X-rays to provide us with an enhanced view of your teeth and underlying structures with as much as 90 percent less radiation exposure as traditional dental X-rays. Your dental health and your overall health are our priorities from the moment you walk through our doors, and our expert in X-rays in Los Angeles will work with you to create an appropriate treatment schedule.
Cleaning your teeth is the final step to your exam. We will use special tools to clean away any tartar buildup. Tartar is a hardened substance that develops when plaque is not adequately removed. Once plaque and tartar have been removed, we will polish your teeth, which leaves them smooth and healthy-looking while removing superficial stains and discolorations. We may make recommendations that can help you improve your hygiene regimen.
If we identify areas of concern during your exam, we will make treatment recommendations that focus on both your smile health and overall balance. We take a holistic approach to each dental health issue we treat and may recommend dental treatment as well as nutritional therapies and lifestyle changes.
