Seeing Dr. Blevins and our experienced dental hygienists for a routine oral health examination is critical to maintaining your oral health and well-being. After all, the first line of defense against serious health issues is prevention and early detection.
When you visit Blevins Dentistry for your routine dental exams every 4-6 months, we will be able to keep a close watch on your oral health, which is a major factor in preventing serious and costly dental problems down the road.
Here are just a few services we provide as part of a thorough dental exam:
- Oral cancer screening
- Visual examinations to check for tooth decay, gum erosion, or bone loss.
- Diagnostic x-rays to look for tumors, cysts, and other problems that are not always seen with the naked eye.
- Evaluation of dental work you’ve had done in the past (such as cosmetic, restorative, or orthodontics) to see if everything is still functioning correctly.
- We also do a thorough periodontal disease evaluation. According to the CDC, approximately half of adults over age 30 have periodontal disease.
