DENTAL CHECKUPS IN CERRITOS, CA

If you want to have a healthy smile that lasts a lifetime, the best way to do this is through regular dental hygiene and routine dental checkups at Dentist of Cerritos. Everyone, no matter their age or level of oral health, should see their dentist at least twice per year, even if nothing appears to be wrong on the surface. As a critical part of your health and wellness, dental checkups are a small price to pay for a lasting smile!

WHAT HAPPENS AT A DENTAL CHECKUP?

At your routine checkup at Dentist of Cerritos, our friendly and knowledgeable team will examine your teeth, gums, and jaw, as well as take X-rays and images to track your progress. You might also receive a thorough teeth cleaning to keep your pearly whites free from tartar and plaque buildup.

WHY ARE DENTAL CHECKUPS IMPORTANT?

A dental checkup is more than just a quick exam and routine teeth cleaning. It is a way to monitor the health of your teeth and gums to prevent problems down the line. It is also an important part of your overall healthcare, because your dentist is the main doctor who performs your yearly oral cancer screening. This standard part of your dental checkup only takes a few minutes and is pain-free.

HOW DO DENTAL CHECKUPS HELP MAINTAIN ORAL HEALTH?

Despite our best efforts at brushing and flossing, many of us will still have problems with our teeth, ranging from positioning and placement to cavities. Also, natural wear and tear can impact the health of the teeth and gums. Over time, our tooth enamel can wear down and tooth sensitivities arise. Some people are just more genetically prone to problems such as gum disease (periodontal disease).

Sometimes, problems can develop under the surface that we are not aware of, including cysts, tumors, and tooth decay. When you get regular dental checkups, problems can be caught early on when they are easier and cheaper to treat.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A DENTAL CHECKUP?

If we perform your dental checkup and everything looks good, we will schedule a routine dental cleaning and recommend you maintain a regular schedule with us.

If we find anything amiss in your dental exam, we will let you know and discuss treatment options. Common issues include cavities and gingivitis (gum inflammation). You may also need an orthodontic treatment if you have crooked teeth, crowded teeth, or bite issues. We will discuss these issues and different correction methods such as braces or Invisalign with you.

You should also ask us questions at this time and let us know if you are interested in any cosmetic dental treatments such as Zoom teeth whitening or porcelain veneers.

WHAT DO DENTAL CHECKUPS COST?

Dental checkups are very affordable, and if you have dental insurance, possibly free! Many dental plans now include a yearly dental exam as part of the benefits package. This actually helps the insurance provider because dental checkups prevent problems down the line that could cost the insurance company more money per patient! Thus, you can see how valuable dental checkups really are!
