At LoPour & Associates DDS Family and Cosmetic Dentistry of Albuquerque, we want to guide you to the best dental health possible in a warm, friendly and relaxing environment. Our dental exams are a vital part of preventative dentistry, which will help you attain and maintain a high level of oral health.
The Importance of Exams for Your Dental Health
At LoPour & Associates DDS Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, you will find a dental office that is dedicated to exceptional dentistry and your family’s oral health. We use dental exams to help us discover a wide range of dental health problems that are treatable and less of an investment of time and money if they are caught, and corrected, early.
During our dental exams, with the help of digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, we look for:
- Areas of excess tartar buildup
- Chips or cracks
- Irritated gums that could be a sign of gum disease
- Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD)
- Oral cancer
As a patient-centered dentist office, we also use our dental exams to educate you about your dental health and reaching optimal dental health. Most patients can anticipate a large decrease in the investment of money and time for dental procedures as you get closer to your oral health goals.
Once you have achieved a state of full oral health as outlined at your new patient appointment, our dental exams are used as a tool for oral health maintenance. If we discover any problems, we will go over treatment options with you so that you can make the best decision possible for your smile. In rare cases, we may refer you to a specialist.
