Regular care, again, benefits the patient because you're maintaining a stable, sound foundation. You know, pretty much, what's going on with your oral health, if anything. Because again, some patients don't need any type of work to put them at a stable baseline, but it's always good to know to go and get that checkup.
It's no different than your vehicle. You can't drive it for 20,000 miles and never take it to get oil changed. So, the same concept applies with the patient and their oral care. Just coming in and getting it checked out every once in a while, even if there's nothing wrong, even if you don't feel anything wrong, just knowing that, 'I know for a fact now that nothing's wrong and I'm good to go.'
Regular exams and cleanings will:
- Keep minor dental issues from developing into major problems
- Potentially improve your overall health as well as your oral health
- Give you fresh breath and a smile that looks and feels great
To schedule dental cleanings and exams services, call 7 O’Clock Dental, LLC at 504-266-0664.
We Use Patient-Friendly Technology for Your Dental Exams
We don’t just check for cavities during your dental exams. Dr. John Tripp also examines you for signs of problems including gum disease, oral cancer, and abnormal wear on teeth that can indicate teeth grinding. So we don’t miss anything, we use some of the latest dental technologies, such as:
- Digital X-rays to obtain fast and precise images using far less radiation than traditional X-rays. We can easily enlarge or otherwise sharpen images if needed.
- Intraoral cameras to see into every part of your mouth with a minimum of poking and prodding. We can share images with you so you better understand your treatment options.
Take Control of Your Dental Destiny With Regular Dental Exams
Before your dental exam even starts, Dr. Tripp will go over exactly what you should expect and answer any initial questions you have. Following your comprehensive exam, he’ll perform a thorough dental cleaning, removing plaque from your teeth and gumline. Following your cleaning, he’ll provide fluoride treatment or any other preventive dentistry measures you may need. Don’t worry; any treatment will be something you both agree on.
After reviewing your X-rays and other inspections and tests, Dr. Tripp will formulate a plan for any additional treatments you may need. You’ll both discuss your dental care future, then you can schedule any appointments or procedures you need. You’ll be out the door in about an hour and a half with truly clean teeth and, more important, control over your oral health.
