Having regular dental exams is one of the best things you can do for your oral health. When you come in to see us twice a year, we can diagnose and treat a condition early and without the added cost of additional procedures.
At Thiells Dentist - Michael Bleyzer, DDS we are always ready to see you even if you have not been to our office in months or years.
The Importance of Regular Dental Exams
Dental exams are a preventive measure, and its goal is the early detection of conditions such as cavities to avoid more extensive problems in the future. When caught early, successfully treating cavities to prevent further decay is easier than waiting until the problem grows worse.
Another benefit of dental exams is the detection of severe disease such as oral cancer. Every time you come to visit us, our dentist will do a complete visual examination of your oral cavity. If you have any of the risk factors for oral cancer, we will do a more in-depth examination of your mouth, gums, cheeks, palate, the floor of the mouth, and tongue. We can also teach you how to do a self-examination at home.
Dental exams also reduce the need for long treatments. When we catch a cavity early the process to fill that cavity is short and less uncomfortable for the patient, then when the time has passed, and the decay has progressed. Cavity prevention is one of our primary goals and the key to avoiding more severe conditions that can affect the root of the tooth.
