Complete Check-ups

Regular visits to your dentist play a vital role in helping you maintain a healthy mouth and teeth. This is true for people of all ages. We recommend our existing, as well as new patients visit us for a comprehensive evaluation of their oral health at least twice a year.

Here's what to expect during a complete dental check-up at Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry of TN

  1. Oral Exam: This involves a careful examination of your teeth and mouth to check for any signs of cavities or other dental problems. These exams help us keep track of your dental health and administer timely treatment if problems are identified.
  2. Digital X-Rays: We make use of digital X-Rays to detect any oral problems that may not be visible to the naked eye. Digital X-Rays are much quicker and safer than film X-Rays as they emit less radiation.
  3. Professional Teeth Cleaning: Getting your teeth and gums professionally checked and cleaned regularly at a dentist's office is the best way to maintain your oral health. Even if you follow a good home-care regimen, there are certain areas in the mouth where a toothbrush and floss cannot reach. A thorough dental cleaning can remove plaque, food, bacteria and stains from your teeth and make them look and feel fresh again.
  4. Oral Cancer Screening: An oral cancer screening for our patients helps us detect any signs of oral cancer at an early stage and act before it reaches an advanced stage. If you notice any changes in your mouth such as sores, swelling, difficulty in chewing and swallowing or numbness, please let us know during your checkup. Sometimes oral cancer may not show visible symptoms in early stages, hence it is very important to undergo regular screenings to rule out the possibilities of its occurrence.
