A dental checkup includes an expert oral examination and routine teeth cleaning.

What Does the Dentist Look for During a Dental Examination?

The oral examination is an important part of the dental checkup we do at Gardena Dental Care. During the examination, the dentist will thoroughly examine the mouth, teeth, and gums. Our dentist is looking for signs of problems such as tooth decay or inflammation of the gums. The dentist will also review the health of the soft tissues of the mouth as well as the tongue.

What Is an Oral Cancer Screening?

An important aspect of a dental examination is the oral cancer screening. The sooner oral cancer is caught the sooner it can be treated and the better the outcome. The doctor will look for tell-tale signs of oral cancer such as lesions and other disruptions in the soft tissue.

What Are Dental X-Rays Used For?

Dental x-rays and other digital pictures are taken approximately once per year to review the health of the teeth structure. The x-rays allow us to see what’s happening “behind the scenes” – what’s not visible to the naked eye. For example, x-rays will let us see whether a cavity is forming and also monitor the progress of tooth eruptions in children.

What Is a Dental Cleaning?

Usually, but not always, we will also conduct a routine teeth cleaning during your dental checkup. A dental cleaning is performed by our certified dental hygienists. Your dental hygienist will remove plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth, which cannot be removed at home with a regular toothbrush. Following the cleaning, the teeth are flossed and polished.

What Is the Dental Checkup Process?

Your routine dental checkup begins with a basic cleaning performed by one of our caring and skilled dental hygienists. During the cleaning, our hygienists will floss your teeth, remove tartar and plaque, and polish your teeth with our modern abrasive cleaner and special fluoride.

During your biannual checkup, we will also be taking x-rays of your teeth and jaw. We use the latest in low-level radiation technology and a protective apron to ensure your safety and comfort during these vital x-rays. We also save you time by using digital scans that make your x-rays ready for immediate viewing.

The last stage of your visit is an expert examination from our highly trained Dr. Omid Barkhordar. He will personally consult with you about any concerns or questions you may have and help create a personalized treatment plan suited just for you.

How Much Does a Dental Checkup Cost?

Dental checkups are an affordable part of your regular oral health care. Most dental insurance plans will cover most or all the costs of a dental checkup. Dental examinations may run from $75 to $150, and the cost of x-rays or imaging may be a little more. If you do not have dental insurance, contact our office to find out about the exact cost of a checkup.
