Oral Examinations & X-Rays in Pueblo
Preventative Care for Optimal Dental Health
Oral health is closely linked to your overall health. Scheduling regular dental exams is the easiest way to preserve the health of your teeth and gums. At Pueblo Dental, we offer oral exams and x-rays at affordable prices to help our patients identify dental problems early and prevent small problems from becoming more severe and putting your oral health at risk.
If it is time for a checkup, call (719) 722-3584 to schedule an appointment with our Pueblo dentist.
How Often to Schedule Dental Exams
Too often, people only call the dentist when they are experiencing pain. By that time, you could have a cavity, gum disease, or another problem. Regular exams allow the dentist to diagnose potential problems, which can prevent the need for more invasive dental work. We provide oral exams and x-rays in Pueblo to help you save money and preserve your oral health.
We provide exams and cleanings according to a schedule that best suits each patient’s oral health. Most people with healthy teeth and gums need to visit the dentist about every six months for cleanings and exams. However, patients with gum disease or at greater risk of developing a specific problem may benefit from more frequent visits.
Comprehensive Oral Exams
Our comprehensive oral exams and x-rays in Pueblo evaluate your overall oral health, assess risk of developing dental problems, and check for abnormalities. While x-rays are not done at every visit, they provide valuable information about your oral health and diagnosis of problems that may be developing below the surface, between the teeth, or are too small to be detected with a visual exam.
During oral exams, we will:
- Assess your overall dental health and oral hygiene
- Check for signs of tooth decay
- Evaluate your jaw and bite
- Take x-rays, when needed
- Discuss proper cleaning and oral hygiene
- Clean your teeth to remove stains
- Assess your medical history and risk for developing oral health problems
After the exam, our dentist will discuss your risk of problems, such as tooth decay or gum disease and recommend preventative measures to improve your dental health. If your oral exam uncovers any potential problems, such as tooth decay, gum disease, or the need for tooth restorations, we can recommend the most effective treatment options to restore your oral health.
