Farmingdale Family Dentist

When you go to a dentist for the first time, you can expect the dentist to take a good look at your mouth and teeth. This enables the dentist to be able to spot problems with your teeth, gums, and other parts of your mouth. Dental examscan help you save a lot of money.

Getting Early Treatment

The longer a dental problem is allowed to continue before being treated, the more money it is going to cost. Most dental problems do not get better with time; instead, they only grow worse and more costly. Some procedures could cost thousands of dollars to correct something that could have only cost a fraction of that if treated sooner.

Preventive

When you have a dental exam, the goal is prevention. An x-ray will be given so that the dentist can see the condition of the roots of your teeth and the jawbone. If you have wisdom teeth, it will also reveal whether or not they are causing, or can be expected to cause, problems with neighboring teeth.

Oral Cancer Screening

The dentist may also look for lumps or signs of oral cancer. He or she will feel your neck and throat for lumps, as well as looking for lumps or growths on your face and in your mouth. Dentists are trained to recognize oral cancer and other diseases that can manifest symptoms in your mouth. Oftentimes, the dentist is the first one to spot health problems.

Grinding or Clenching Teeth

Some problems will be evident to the dentist that may be unknown to you. Simply by looking at the condition of your teeth, the dentist can know whether you grind or clench your teeth or not – even if you are not aware of it. This problem leads to cracked or chipped teeth, as well as teeth that are ground down until they are shorter than they should be.

This may lead to being encouraged to see a sleep specialist because these habits are often symptoms of sleep apnea. The dentist can also help with sleep guards to protect your teeth from further damage.

Oral Health

As the dentist performs the exam, it will be noticed how well you are doing at brushing or flossing your teeth. Spots you are missing are apt to be pointed out to help you do a better job at protecting your teeth.

If you have gum disease at any level, it will be pointed out. Tips for treating it will also be given so that it does not cause severe damage to your gums, teeth, and jawbone.

Diet

You will also be asked about the kind of diet you eat regularly. Since it will affect the health of your teeth, you may also receive advice on how to eat healthier to help keep your teeth looking good longer.

patient-review-Lev Ibragimov“An absolutely fantastic experience in dentistry the likes of which I have never experienced. I went to this office on the referral of my friend, and I’m so glad i made the appointment. Dr. Vera is truly one of the finest dentist I’ve ever experienced. I have had so many problem with my teeth and felt like wherever I went previously it took a year and never done right. I frankly gave up on getting veneers done.

Dr. Vera where able to repair the mistakes of my previous dentist in one visit. I was in so much pain for weeks, so on a recommendation I took a chance. Let me tell you, i will never ever let another dentist work on me. She was so gentle, she explained what needed to be done. My goodness, she is polite, professional, and truly artistic in the work she did on me. I’m gong back to finish all my teeth. I cant wait. I highly , highly , highly recommend this office and Dr. Vera. I wish i could give 10 stars. Go there you won’t regret it.” By Lev Ibragimov
