Dental Check-Ups in Reno, NV

Scheduling regular dental checkups is part of maintaining good oral hygiene and overall health. These check-ups can include cleanings and X-rays to make sure that your teeth are healthy and to prevent any small issues from escalating. Dental checkups are non-invasive and are not painful, so there is no reason to avoid them.

What to expect:

  1. One of the first things to review in your first dental check-up with Dr. Silvaroli is your previous medical and dental history so that the doctor can make informed decisions for your future care.
  2. Generally, the next step is x-rays and a hands-on exam. Xrays will reveal any dental problems that are not easily visible. In addition to the X-rays, the doctor will also perform a hands-on examination to evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums.
  3. After your exam, the dentist will go over the results with you and decide if any next steps are needed. A professional dental cleaning may also be recommended to remove plaque and tartar build-up. If there are multiple dental procedures needed, a treatment plan will be created for you at this time.
  4. The last phase of the check-up involves a series of recommendations to improve your oral health. Instructions about proper brushing and flossing are common, especially if your existing routine can be improved.
  5. During you following appointments, your dentist may be able to skip some of the steps above, depending on the state of your oral health. Instead of reviewing your medical records, the dentist will check your progress and make sure that any problem areas are addressed. They will also provide feedback on how you implemented their previous recommendations and suggest further improvements or changes in your daily dental care routine.

How often should you go to the dentist?

We recommend dental check-ups every six months. This is the average time span between two check-ups, but depending on your dental health Dr. Silvaroli may increase or decrease the number of annual check-ups. For example, if your teeth and gums are in excellent condition without significant plaque build-up, your dentist may agree to one annual check-up.

Alternatively, if you are having more frequent dental issues, you may need more than two appointments per year. Those individuals who may need more frequent treatments include:

  • Patients who suffer from gum disease
  • Patients with abnormal plaque and tartar build-up
  • Persons with low immunity to infections
  • Pregnant women
  • Patients with diabetes
  • Patients who smoke or chew tobacco
