Comprehensive dental exams are essential, preventative screenings that play a vital role in your overall health. All children and adults should see the dentist twice a year for comprehensive dental exams. Maintaining excellent oral health and hygiene can help reduce your risk of myriad health conditions affecting much more than your teeth and mouth. This is because your mouth serves as the entry point to your digestive and respiratory tracts. For example, maintaining good oral health can reduce your risk of:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Kidney cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Blood cancers
  • Endocarditis
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Pneumonia
  • Pregnancy and birth complications

During a comprehensive dental exam at Bellissimi Dental, our dentists and hygienists will thoroughly examine your teeth, tongue, gums, and tissues to look for signs of problems due to bacteria.  

During this diagnostic examination our team will:

  • Look for signs of gum disease or periodontal disease
  • X-ray your teeth 
  • Note any signs of infection or decay
  • Identify teeth needing treatment
  • Evaluate your jaw and bite

Following your examination, you will receive a dental cleaning and an explanation of any problems that are found. You may receive a fluoride treatment.

If further treatment is needed, you may have various scans taken, or impressions made to create bridges or crowns. In some cases, minor cavities may be filled during a dental examination. 

Before you leave, our team will answer any questions you may have. If you request services such as at-home whitening kits, you will receive instructions on how to properly use the whitening kits. Our team may also recommend different kinds of toothpaste, brushes, or mouth rinses. If you require additional treatment, your next appointment will be scheduled before you leave your examination. 

Call 330-741-3334 to schedule your appointment.
