Dental Exams and X-Rays in Yorba Linda, CA
Dental exams and x-rays are an essential part of comprehensive dental care. At Capstone Dental Care, Dr. Jokmels will ask you to have a dental exam at least twice a year, or more if she feels that it is needed. Part of this process includes taking x-rays of the mouth and jaw to assess any problems that may be developing that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
X-rays are a valuable tool in dentistry. They allow us to see what is happening beneath the surface of your teeth and gums. This information helps us to diagnose problems early on and treat them more effectively. Most patients will need to have them done every six months, though it may vary depending on your dentist’s recommendations or specific case history.
A dental exam is a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health. It includes a visual examination of your teeth and gums, as well as a review of your medical history and any current medications you are taking.
Dental exams allow our Yorba Linda dentist to diagnose issues such as:
- gum disease
- cracked or broken teeth
- tooth decay
- impacted wisdom teeth
Early diagnosis allows for effective treatment. Dr. Jokmels works with her patients to educate and inform them of all treatment options.
If you are overdue for a dental exam, or if you have any concerns about your oral health, please call Capstone Dental Care today. We would be happy to help you get the care that you need.
