Dentistry Q & A

What is involved in dentistry care?

General dentistry includes all care and treatment to keep your teeth, gums, and other oral structures healthy. Dentistry includes preventive care, like routine exams and cleanings as well as oral cancer screenings. The dental team at Clinical San Miguel can help treat minor gum disease and fill cavities too. 

Other important procedures that dentistry care can help with include:

  • Root canals
  • Dental implants
  • Custom mouthguards
  • Fillings and crowns
  • Professional teeth whitening

The team at Clinical San Miguel can also do extractions if you should have a painful tooth that can’t be saved. 

How often do I need dentistry care?

Your oral health is important to the health of your entire body. Tooth or gum infections can cause inflammation in other parts of your body and contribute to poor quality of life. 

Patients with good at-home dental care and who are in generally good health need to see their dentist for a routine visit every six months. The team uses these routine exams to help keep your teeth and gums healthy, in addition to checking for early warning signs of oral cancer, problems with wisdom teeth, or the occasional cavity. 

People with gum disease or tooth decay may require more frequent visits. If you have a severe toothache or other tooth complication, schedule an appointment between your routine visits. 

What happens during a dental exam?

During your routine dental visit, the team thoroughly cleans your teeth. Your hygienist can reach areas that just aren’t possible to reach with a normal toothbrush at home. They also get under the gumline to help keep gum disease away. 

Trust your hygienist to:

  • Evaluate the health of your gums, tongue, and throat
  • Clean each tooth one by one
  • Take new X-ray images
  • Floss between teeth
  • Teach you proper brushing

After your teeth cleaning, the dentist reviews your X-rays and checks each tooth for signs of damage or decay.
