Regular dental checkups are the best way to keep your teeth healthy and strong. At Greenbelt Dental Associates, we’re here to help you and your family get the care you need. Be sure to visit us every six months to enjoy a lifetime of beautiful smiles and great oral health. Our office offers checkups for patients of all ages and every stage of care.
A full examination at Greenbelt Dental Associates will give you a complete assessment of your overall dental health. First, we’ll examine your teeth, gums, tongue and other oral tissues. This will allow us to check for cavities, chipped or broken teeth, signs of gum disease, or other dental concerns. We’ll also evaluate any dental appliances or repair work such as fillings, crowns and bridges.
Digital X-rays give us a complete view of your overall oral health. We can check your tooth roots, jaw bone and surrounding tissues to look for problems beneath the gum line. Compared to traditional film X-rays, digital X-rays emit up to 90% less radiation.
We offer oral cancer screenings to all our patients as part of preventive and interceptive cancer treatment. Early detection and treatment lead to more effective cancer treatment. During your checkup, we will perform a visual exam of your face, mouth and lips for visible signs or symptoms of cancer. Next, we will perform a physical exam to check your cheeks, jaw and chin.
Professional cleaning is an important preventive treatment that helps keep your teeth and gums healthy. A professional cleaning every six months will remove built-up plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth, reducing your risk of developing gum disease. Regular professional cleanings also help keep your teeth white and your breath fresh between visits.
