A Routine Dental Checkup Helps Prevent Dental Problems

Posted .

Maintaining good oral health is important to your overall quality of life. To aid in this effort the American Dental Association recommends having a dental checkup and cleaning performed by a dentist, every six months. Each dental checkup at Dr. Milan Sata’s dental office is designed to clean your teeth and monitor the overall health of your mouth.

The appointment starts with a dental cleaning procedure performed by one of Dr. Milan Sata’s dental hygienists. They will use special tools and professional techniques to remove plaque buildup and hardened tartar from your teeth. At the end of the cleaning they will perform a dental polishing to remove any surface stains from your teeth. More significant dental stains might require professional measures.

Dr. Milan Sata will then perform a thorough examination of your mouth. If he finds any signs of gum disease, cavities, or other potential problems, our dental team will present you with the applicable treatment options or preventative measures.

An oral cancer screening will then be made. This involves a cursory examination of your mouth, neck, and tongue for signs of oral or pharyngeal cancer.

If you live in the Flint, Michigan, area and you are due for your next dental checkup, you should call 810-694-0200 to set up an appointment at Milan Sata DDS. Let our dental professionals help you get your best and brightest smile today!
