If you want to make sure that your teeth stay as healthy as possible, it is important that you come to our dental practice, Gauri Savant DDS, for a dental exam. When you visit our dental practice for an Uptown NYC dental exam, you will be seen by our expert dentist, Dr. Gauri Savant.
Having a dental exam on a biannual basis is recommended. This way, any emerging dental problems will be found early. Many people think of their dental exams as being cost-effective because the sooner a problem is found, the more easily it can be treated. For example, if our dentist finds that you have a tooth with a small cavity during a dental exam, it will be much easier to treat rather than wait until the tooth becomes damaged and you will need a root canal treatment in order to save the tooth. Our Uptown NYC dental exam is comprehensive and will cover all aspects of your oral health. X-rays will be taken to make sure no problems are developing between the teeth or below the gum line. Our dentist will examine your teeth to make sure that they do not have any cracks or chips that need to be attended to. If you are grinding your teeth, this too will show up on a dental exam. Our dentist will also check the health of your gums. If you develop gum disease, it will never go away by itself; it needs to be treated. If you have gingivitis, a common precursor to gum disease, our dentist will most likely recommend that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. During our dental exams, your mouth will also be checked for any signs of oral cancer, and our dentist will examine your bite to make sure it is not showing any problems from teeth grinding or TMJ.
