Helping You Make Amazing First Impressions

Although dental exams are often the last entry in a person’s healthcare plan, they really should top the list. Why? Because your smile is your first impression and great first impressions are important in so many contexts, ranging from your career to your social life. In fact, a recent study revealed that people with whiter, stronger-looking teeth were perceived as trustworthy, professionally successful and more likely to be hired. Unfortunately, individuals with stained, crooked or broken teeth were viewed as under-qualified and thought to have poor oral hygiene.
Society places a lot of emphasis on the appearance of smiles and beautiful teeth have become a social norm. Thankfully, achieving the ideal grin is easy with regular dental exams. These checkups are the basis of preventative care and allow us to keep a close eye on what’s going on in your mouth.

What Happens at Your
Dental Exam
As always, at MDCS, we customize the experience to you and ensure you’re comfortable throughout the process. Our dental exam includes:

Looking for Tooth Decay

Tooth decay is serious as it can advance into infection, illness and the loss of teeth. It’s always best to deal with tooth decay when it’s minimal. While checking for cavities is what a lot of people think of as the main reason to visit the dentist, we look for many other things as well.

Checking for Gum Disease

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, causes people to lose more teeth than cavities do. It has also been identified as a major contributor to inflammation of the arteries, which leads to blockage, strokes and heart attacks.

Evaluating Your Fillings

Fillings can become old or damaged and tooth decay can hide underneath of them. Through the exam and x-rays, we can spot this and determine if a filling needs to be replaced.

Cleaning the Teeth

You brush and floss your teeth regularly at home so why have them professionally cleaned? Well, we have the tools and expertise to remove hardened plaque from the teeth and under the gums, which is the first line of defense against gum disease. We always finish up by polishing the teeth to smooth their surfaces and enable them to resist foods that stick to the enamel.

Helping You Create a Homecare Routine

Proper dental hygiene starts at home. Your dentist or hygienist will give you important advice and guidance on how to clean your teeth effectively and the steps you can take to keep your smile dazzling. Caring for your teeth is a lifetime commitment but it also carries a lifetime of benefits.
