Keeping up with your oral health is an important part of maintaining your overall wellness and can help you prevent the main causes of tooth loss such as tooth decay and gum disease. Preventative dental care is crucial to your oral health and allows you to work with your dentist to ensure the health of your smile. Find out more about preventative dental care and what happens at an initial oral examination with Dr. Ronald Hull at Gentle Dental in Elkhorn, WI.

What is preventative dental care? 
Preventative dental care includes regular visits with your dentist to visually inspect the teeth and oral tissues. Your dentist may also suggest taking x-rays of your teeth to further investigate their health and ensure that there is no hidden decay not visible to the naked eye. You will also receive a professional dental cleaning, which removes plaque and tartar from the teeth.

How often should I see my dentist? 
The American Dental Association suggests seeing your dentist at least twice a year for routine exams and cleanings. These regular visits take only about an hour and can save you the time, effort, and money associated with the treatment of issues like a cavity or gum disease.

What happens during an initial oral examination?
Your initial oral examination with Gentle Dental will include several steps. First, you will undergo a visual examination of the teeth, mouth, and oral tissues. Then, your dentist will chart and diagnose any issues or abnormalities. X-rays, including a panoramic x-ray, help Dr. Hull see inside your teeth to their core, ensuring there is no decay hidden away inside the tooth. Together, these elements which make up your initial oral examination set a solid foundation for your future preventative dental care.
