Annual dental exams are one of the most important steps you can take for optimum oral health. Too many people let fear stand in the way of getting their dental checkups. As a result, little things can wind up turning into big problems. Pacific NW Dental Center has an inviting atmosphere geared to help patients feel at home. We want our patients to look forward to these visits, so they can keep their smiles bright and healthy. We provide complete dental care services for all family members, including comprehensive exams, cleanings and consultations. Healthy teeth and soft tissues of the mouth are foundational to overall well-being. Pacific NW Dental Center provides you with the information you need for you and your family members can enjoy continued oral health.
Dental examinations include more than just looking for cavities in your teeth. Our comprehensive checkups and exams are the first step in preventing and mitigating problems in the mouth. In addition to checking for caries or dental decay, we look at your overall health, and particularly your oral hygiene. We check for any problems you may have with your jaw or bite. Issues with your gums, tongue or cheeks may also surface during your exam. For those with prosthetics – dentures or bridges – we check to ensure that they are fitting properly. Another important part of your exam is the oral cancer screening. This painless procedure is simple and critical in making sure that you do not have any problems brewing. When caught early, oral cancer is one of the easiest to cure.
When your exam is completed, we will consult with you on the findings, make suggestions as needed and answer any questions or concerns you may have. At Pacific NW Dental Center, your oral health is our primary concern. We provide education for our patients so that they will know how to practice good oral hygiene and keep their teeth and gums in the best possible shape.
