Benefits of Routine Oral Exams
Tooth decay is the most common type of chronic disease among U.S. adults. Recent studies by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research indicate that 60 percent of adults have not seen a dentist in the last year; 12 percent have not seen a dentist in the last five years. Unfortunately, this type of dental neglect doesn’t just lead to a lack of smile confidence; it can exacerbate medical conditions and put patients at increased risk for other health problems.
Those who see a dentist regularly are less likely to develop gum disease, oral cancer, TMJ (temporomandibular muscle and joint) disorder, cardiovascular disease, blood sugar problems, immune disorders, and more. The mouth is a window to the body, and a healthy mouth is an indicator of physical health and longevity.

Daily brushing and flossing are essential to tooth and gum health, but so are routine cleanings and oral exams. During your visit, our doctors and dental team remove tartar and plaque that home hygiene leaves behind—reducing the chance of oral disease and bacteria growth. Most importantly, our team will assess your teeth and gums to recommend corrective care, diagnose caries (cavities), and treat small problems before they become major health concerns.
