Regular Dental Checkups in Valencia, CA
At Shawn Javid, DDS, we always remind our patients to brush their teeth and floss regularly. But unfortunately, these actions are not always enough. If you want to maintain good oral health, regular checkups are extremely important. We recommend that all of our patients visit our office at least once every six months for a regular checkup.
The first thing we do during a regular checkup is to take a look at the current state of your teeth. We will look for any signs of tooth decay, cavities, or damage. We’ll also look out for plaque and tartar on the teeth. Plaque is the sticky, clear layer of bacteria that forms on the teeth and can typically be removed through brushing, but sometimes the bacteria turns into tartar which is more difficult to remove. In most cases, a professional cleaning will eliminate these substances.
Once we have evaluated the health of your teeth, we will examine your gums. We make it a point to watch out for any signs of gum disease in order to offer solutions as early as possible.
Our dentist will also examine your face, neck, lymph nodes and lower jaw joints. These areas may show signs the first of oral cancer, which should be attended to immediately.
If it’s time for your comprehensive dental checkup, please call our office Shawn Javid, DDS, and schedule an appointment.
