Why do I need regular dental exams?

Regular dental exams are a crucial part of preventive oral care. Brushing and flossing at home are not enough to maintain good oral health. During your exam, your dentist can detect any dental problems that you might not be aware of.

When should I have a dental exam?

It is recommended to see your dentist every 6 months. However, your dentist may request to see you more often if you have ongoing dental problems. Even if you no longer have your natural teeth, it is still important to have regular dental exams to maintain good oral health and make sure that your replacement teeth are in good shape.

What should I expect during my dental exam?

You will see both your dentist and hygienist during your dental exam. Dr. Douglas Kim will review your health history and examine your mouth, teeth, and other soft tissue. He will also check your neck, face, throat, and tongue for indications of swelling, complications, or other diseases like oral cancer.  An X-ray may be conducted to allow your dentist to have a proper look at your mouth’s condition. Your dental hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth to get rid of plaque. He/she will also floss, polish, and apply fluoride to your teeth to protect your them from cavities.
