What to Expect During a Dental Exam at Silvaroli Dental

Welcome to Silvaroli Dental! If you’re preparing for your first dental exam with us, or if it’s just been a while, here’s what you can expect when you visit our clinic.

Initial Consultation

This is your opportunity to discuss your dental history and any current issues you might be experiencing. Our team will ask about your overall health, medications, and any changes in your oral health, providing a comprehensive approach to your dental care.

Teeth Cleaning

The Cleaning Process

Our dental hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth, removing plaque and tartar build-up that regular brushing can’t handle. This cleaning helps prevent cavities and gum disease.

Importance of Professional Teeth Cleaning

Regular professional cleaning is vital for preventing dental diseases and maintaining the longevity of your teeth. It also provides an opportunity to identify potential issues early and leaves you with a clean and fresh feel that enhances your smile.

Examination by the Dentist

Checking for Signs of Decay and Disease

Our dentist will conduct a visual inspection and carefully examine your teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of problems, such as decay or gum disease. We use the latest technology to ensure accurate diagnostics.

Discussion of Findings

After the examination, we’ll discuss any findings with you. If any issues are detected, we’ll explain your options for treatment and suggest the best course of action, helping you make informed decisions about your dental health.

Dental X-Rays

If necessary, we may take dental X-rays to get a better look at the health of your teeth and jawbone. X-rays allow us to see beneath the surface of your gums, helping detect issues hidden from the naked eye, such as impacted teeth, abscesses, or jawbone damage.

Additional Assessments

Oral Cancer Screening

We perform oral cancer screenings as part of our routine dental exam. This quick and painless process is vital for early detection and successful treatment. We check for lumps, irregular tissue changes, or other signs of oral cancer, especially important for patients who use tobacco or have a history of oral cancer.

Cosmetic and Functional Evaluation

If you’re interested in cosmetic dental procedures, like whitening or straightening, or have concerns about the functionality of your teeth, we can assess and provide recommendations during your visit.
