If you want to make sure that your teeth and gums stay healthy, come to our dental practice for periodic dental checkups and dental cleanings. At our dental practice, Alan F. Robinson DDS, PC, our top-notch dentist, Dr. Robinson, provides comprehensive dental care Sterling Heights.
It is very important that you come in to see our dentist for periodic dental exams to make sure that your teeth, gums, and mouth are staying healthy. During our regular dental exams, your complete oral health will be reviewed. You may have a complete set of x-rays taken, depending on the last time you had x-rays taken. The x-rays will be reviewed and the teeth will also be reviewed for any signs of dental cavities or problems developing below the gum lines. Your entire mouth will be thoroughly examined for any signs of oral cancer. Our dentist will also check your bite to make sure that you do not have any problems such as TMJ which can push the bite out of alignment. Our dentist will also check the health of your gums. If it is seen that your gums are developing gingivitis, a common precursor to gum disease, it may be recommended that you have several regular dental cleanings over the coming months to help your gums return to good health. If deep pockets have developed between the gums and teeth, you will need to have a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment to get your gums back to good health. It is very important that you also have dental cleanings every six months to help prevent gum disease and also help your teeth to stay cavity-free. Additionally, if a problem is discovered during a regular dental exam, it is much more likely that the problem will still be in an early stage when it can be more easily and more cost-effectively treated by dental care Sterling Heights.
