What Is a Dental Exam & Checkup?

An old man smiling in the park

Your dental exam is an important part of your overall health care. During this examination, our Las Vegas dentist will examine your teeth and gums, looking for tooth decay, gum disease, and infection. We may also take digital X-rays using the latest technology, and these images alert our dentist to changes in your oral health over time.

  • Why Do I Need a Dental Exam?
    • To maintain a healthy and beautiful smile
    • To prevent decay, infection, gum disease, and tooth loss
    • To catch issues early, before they become more expensive

Does It Hurt?

Not at all. Dental exams and digital X-rays are painless, and your dentist will make sure you’re reclined and comfortable during the examination.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Exams

  • If my teeth feel fine, do I need to go to the dentist?

    Yes! Keeping your six-month checkups will give your dentist the chance to find problems while they’re small and easy to correct.

    For example, if there’s a cavity, you may need a small filling rather than a root canal or extraction. This preventative care saves you time, money, and potential pain.

    To schedule your exam with our dentist in Las Vegas, please contact us today.

  • How often should I get a dental exam?
    Dental exams and cleanings are recommended twice a year. If you have had gum disease in the past, we may recommend you come in a bit more often.

    Behind on your checkup? Don’t worry! We’ll never judge you. We understand that things come up.

  • How can I prepare for a dental exam?
    Brush your teeth before your appointment.

    Your dentist may ask you questions about your oral healthcare routine. Please be honest. We’re here to help.

  • What if I have a specific dental concern?
    Speak up! Your dentist wants to know all about your dental history, your needs, and any concerns you have. If there’s a specific area of concern, we’ll be sure to address it.
  • What if I experience dental anxiety?
    The team at Edge Dental and Orthodontics in Las Vegas sees and helps patients with dental anxiety every day. We’re here to help you remain calm and offer sedation dentistry options if you want them.
