Dental Checkups in Albuquerque
You know the saying: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” That rings true when it comes to your dental health. Regular dental checkups from your family-friendly general dentists at Davis Gribble Hollowwa Dental can help you maintain a healthy and beautiful smile and prevent painful, costly restorative work down the road.
What We Check For
During a regular checkup, the dental hygienists and dentists check for a number of oral health issues, including:
We test for soft spots in your enamel and use digital X-rays to see if decay has progressed into the softer tissues below the enamel.
We thoroughly examine your mouth, face and neck to check for any spots or sores that may be early warning signs.
We measure the pockets between your gum and each tooth to assess if there is gum disease and what stage of gum disease is present.
We ask questions to find out if you have any pain or tightness in your jaw. If you do have any indication of TMJ disorder, we can do further evaluations to see if you would benefit from TMJ treatment.
If there are any signs or symptoms of these problems present, our family dentists will discuss your treatment options and help you develop a comprehensive dental care plan.
