What are dental exams?

Dental exams consist of comprehensive oral health examinations the Morita Dental team completes to detect cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems early before they become serious. To achieve or maintain optimal dental health, schedule dental exams every six months or more often recommended by your Morita Dental provider.

What happens during dental exams?

When you arrive at Morita Dental for a dental exam, you’re greeted by friendly, welcoming staff. You sit in a comfortable dental chair while the team reviews your oral health history and asks questions about symptoms you may have. 

The dental professionals clean and floss your teeth using specialized dental instruments, such as Waterpik®, and they take X-rays to detect potential oral health issues. Your Morita Dental provider recommends treatment when necessary to repair teeth or reduce the risk of oral health problems. 

Are dental treatments right for me?

Based on the results of your dental exam, the team at Morita Dental might recommend one of the following treatments:

Preventive treatments

In addition to thoroughly cleaning your teeth and gum line, your provider might recommend you or your child receive fluoride treatments or sealants to help prevent tooth decay.

Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings can repair teeth with minor tooth damage or decay, and they blend in perfectly with your natural tooth color. Getting a filling is a noninvasive procedure without any downtime.

Root canals

During a root canal, your dental team cleans out the inside of an infected or severely decayed tooth and restores it to prevent serious complications, including tooth loss.

Crowns and bridges

Crowns and bridges can attach to dental implants to replace missing teeth or fit over your natural teeth to improve their function and appearance.

Dental implants

Dental implants are artificial, titanium tooth roots the Morita Dental team implants into your jawbone to support artificial teeth if you have missing permanent teeth.

Dentures

Removable or implant-supported dentures replace some or all missing permanent teeth to restore your smile and self-confidence.

Veneers

Veneers fit over the front part of natural teeth to improve their color, shape, and overall appearance. Veneers are helpful if your teeth are chipped, misshapen, discolored, too small, or have other imperfections. 

Invisalign®

Invisalign clear aligners are a noninvasive orthodontic treatment that straightens crooked teeth or corrects a misaligned bite to improve the appearance and function of your smile.

Don’t neglect your oral health and let minor dental issues turn into serious problems. Schedule a dental exam with Morita Dental over the phone or book one online today.
