At Novera Dental, Drs. Rivera, Hosseini, and Nourahmadi in Chicago, Illinois, are excited to help you get your smile ready for your summer days with our dental checkup and cleaning. According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), patients who receive regular dental cleanings every six months benefit from improved oral health. Our dental checkups are the perfect complement to your daily at-home care, brushing and flossing routine, to protect your oral health.
The AGD also says that regular dental checkups may help lower the risk for certain diseases, such as heart disease and stroke. Life-threatening medical conditions, such as oral cancer, can often be detected in their early stages during a dental checkup. Regular dental checkups can also help prevent gum disease, tooth decay and even bad breath. Another benefit to regular dental checkups is that it allows us to detect and fix issues early on, when they are easiest and most economically treated.
During your checkup, our Novera Dental team will clean your teeth, perform an exam, and possibly take X-rays. We will remove tartar above and below the gum line, as well as polish your teeth and floss them. We will also check for the following:
— Signs of tooth decay
— Your gum health
— Your bite
— Signs of tooth grinding or TMJ
— Infection or oral cancer
