A dental checkup is a routine visit to a dentist to assess and evaluate the overall health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. During a dental checkup, the dentist will perform a comprehensive examination of your oral cavity to identify any signs of decay, gum disease, or other dental problems.

The process of a dental checkup typically involves the following:

  • Medical History: The dentist will first ask about your medical history as this can affect your dental health and any current dental concerns you may have. They may also ask about your lifestyle habits, such as tobacco use and diet, which can affect your oral health.
  • Examination: The dentist will then visually examine your teeth and gums, looking for any signs of decay, gum disease, or other dental problems. They may use special instruments to check for cavities or signs of tooth decay.
  • X-rays: If necessary, the dentist may also take x-rays to check for any hidden problems or areas of concern.
  • Oral Cancer Screening: As part of a routine checkup, the dentist will also perform an oral cancer screening, checking for any signs of abnormal tissue growth or other signs of cancer.
  • Treatment Planning: If the dentist identifies any dental problems during the checkup, they will discuss treatment options with you and help you develop a plan to address any issues.
