Quality comprehensive dental care is the foundation of good overall dental health. At Beauty and the Teeth Dental, Dr. Tadros offers comprehensive dental care through routine dental exams to check in on your oral health. By scheduling regular comprehensive dental exams in Fort Lauderdale, you are prioritizing not just your dental health but your overall health.
Comprehensive dental care refers to the routine dental exam that you have with your dentist, typically every six months to a year. Through comprehensive dental care, Dr. Tadros can monitor your teeth, gums, and overall mouth for signs of dental disease or tooth decay and help you maintain good health. Your comprehensive dental appointment is also your chance to ask any questions you might have and to have your teeth professionally cleaned.
Excellent care provided by warm, welcoming, kind hearted team of professionals. This was my first ever visit to a dentist’s office and I was made to feel completely at ease by Dr. Tardos and her staff. I don’t think many places could take something as uncomfortable as a teeth cleaning and make it a rather fun and pleasant experience. Thank you!
During your comprehensive dental exam, a hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth, and Dr. Tadros will examine the teeth, gums, and soft tissues of the mouth to check for any disease or decay. This ensures that you are in good oral health. During the appointment, Dr. Tadros or your hygienist can also answer questions you might have about your everyday oral hygiene and educate you on how to best preserve the health of your teeth and gums.
Your comprehensive dental exam will include the following:
- A dental health evaluation to review your dental history, concerns, diet, medications, or other relevant information
- An assessment and examination of your overall dental health
- A cavity check
- Examination of your bite and jaw health
- Explanations of proper oral hygiene as necessary
- Examination of any restorations such as crowns, dental bridges, or veneers
- Dental x-rays as necessary
- Oral cancer screening
Comprehensive dental care is the best way for patients to prevent serious dental health concerns and prevent advanced diseases. Most dental health issues are either preventable or treated more easily when they can be diagnosed early. In addition, many complications with your overall health have symptoms that are clearly identified in the mouth. Dentists like Dr. Tadros can identify signs of diseases that affect the whole body, including symptoms of diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, cancers such as leukemia or pancreatic cancer, or a higher risk of heart attack. For these reasons, comprehensive dental care is important not just for your oral health, but your overall health.
