Dental Checkups in Flint, MI
Preventive dentistry serves as the foundation for lifelong oral health. With routine dental checkups at the office of Dr. Chitra P. Naik, you can keep your smile looking and feeling its best for years to come. Conveniently located in Flint, MI, our practice offers a comprehensive menu of general dentistry services, including dental checkups and cleanings.
The Importance of Regular Dental Checkups
The American Dental Association recommends that patients in good oral health visit their dentist at least once every six months. Patients who are being treated for periodontal disease, or gum disease, typically require more frequent checkups.
During your dental checkup with Dr. Naik, we will closely assess the health of your gum tissue as well as each and every one of your teeth. X-rays may be taken to provide Dr. Naik with a more comprehensive look at your dentition. One of the services that we often perform at a routine checkup is oral cancer screening. Early detection of oral cancer significantly increases the likelihood that treatment will be successful. Other issues that we look for during a checkup include signs of bruxism (teeth grinding) and TMJ disorder.
Dental checkups also provide the ideal opportunity for patients to bring up any concerns they may have. We specialize in offering valuable, helpful patient education tips to ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy between appointments. For children, dental checkups quickly become the building blocks of a healthy future relationship with the dentist. If you’d like to introduce your child to the idea of regular dental checkups gradually, we invite you to bring them with you to your own appointments. Our practice wants every smile in your household to look beautiful and remain healthy for life.
