Dental checkups and cleanings are an important part of maintaining oral health. Here's what you can expect during your next visit to the dentist.
During a routine cleaning and checkup, Dr. Birkitt will check for cavities. He will carefully look for any signs of decay, such as holes or discoloration, and will also use X-rays to check for hidden cavities. If he finds any evidence of a cavity, he will recommend treatment, which may involve filling the cavity or placing a crown over the tooth. Dr. Birkitt is also experienced in preventive care and can offer advice on avoiding cavities in the future. For example, he may recommend changes to your diet or oral hygiene routine or suggest that you use fluoride toothpaste or sealants. By taking proactive steps, you can help to keep your teeth healthy and prevent cavities from forming. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Birkitt today to learn more about cavity prevention.
Dental cleaning is not only an important part of maintaining oral health, but it is also an opportunity to check for signs of oral cancer. Dr. Birkitt will also examine your mouth for any abnormal growths or lesions during a cleaning. If we notice anything suspicious, we recommend you see a doctor for a more thorough examination. While oral cancer is relatively rare, catching it in its earliest stages is vital to improving successful treatment. Schedule regular dental checkups to keep your mouth healthy and cancer-free.
