A healthy mouth is a team effort consisting of routine dental exams and good oral hygiene at home. Even if you practice near-perfect home oral care, you must visit a dentist every six months to complete preventive dental care.
Routine dental exams and cleanings at Distinctive Dentistry prevent oral problems and extend the life of dental restorations. If you’re searching for a welcoming dental practice in Eugene, Oregon — where you can receive exceptional care — we invite new patients to schedule an appointment with Drs. Robert Gemmell, Ty Jaros, and Jacob Gubrud.
A routine dental exam can vary in time depending on each specific person and their needs. If it’s your first dental exam, we’ll start by taking your medical history, including previous dental history, underlying conditions, current medication, allergies, etc. This information helps us to provide the best personalized care possible.
Next, we physically examine your teeth and gums to identify signs of cavities and other oral problems. If you are due for X-rays, we’ll take digital radiographs of your mouth to detect any potential issues lurking in areas we cannot physically see, such as between your teeth and beneath your gum line. Through dental X-rays, we can spot tooth decay, jaw misalignment, cysts, wisdom teeth, bone loss, and other dental problems not identifiable to the naked eye.
After a dental exam, our dental hygienist cleans your teeth using special tools and techniques. During dental cleaning or prophylaxis, we clean your teeth surface and along the gum line to remove plaque and tartar. Then, we floss and polish your teeth, leaving you with a healthy, clean smile.
Dental check-ups offer numerous benefits to your mouth and overall body, including the following:
We also discuss how to improve your dental hygiene at home, which includes brushing, flossing, and a healthy diet.
