As you may already know, your six-month checkup is vital for your oral health. What you might not know are the specific steps involved in your dental appointment. To help you feel more comfortable and relaxed in the dental chair while you visit your dentist, Dr. Kenneth Klassen or Dr. Wendy Quiroz, we are happy to explain the process of your treatment.

First, you’ll receive a dental cleaning and exam. Your dental cleaning will be easy and painless, but it might involve a tiny bit of pressure. To begin, your hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar from your smile with special tools and techniques. This is extremely beneficial because it helps you prevent gum disease. Then, they will examine the gumline and look for any dental issues. Next, they will floss between your teeth and remove the substances that live there. Finally, they will polish your teeth to remove the surface stains on your smile.

To end your appointment, your dentist will visit you and ask about any concerns you might have for your teeth and gums. Then, they will examine your mouth and look for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, enamel erosion, and even oral cancer. If they see any trouble spots, you will be given the advice you need to strengthen your teeth and gums. Then, if there are any dental issues, they will discuss your treatment options with you.
