Saint Paul, MN General Dentist Discusses the Dental Exams

Written by Drs. Mark and Rachel Malterud on Mar 10, 2015

The dental exam and dental cleaning are two important elements of great oral health care. Most people understand this, and the St. Paul, MN General Dentist strives to educate our patients about these two preventive procedures. The recommendation is that you schedule your family’s dental exam every six months. The reason behind this timing is to ensure that you and your family receive regular, thorough examinations. In this way we are able to address any underlying issues or potential problems in a timely manner. The dental exam and cleaning are essential steps that provide your dentist with enough information to treat problems effectively.

When you schedule regular appointments at the Minneapolis Dentist Office you ensure a sound routine of at-home oral health care. But this routine will also give you peace of mind in knowing that you and your family receive individualized care. You can also be confident that your oral health care is being monitored regularly by a dentist familiar with your history.

Introducing children to regular dental checkups helps get them started on a routine of good oral health care but also allows them to become accustomed to the dentist and the office setting. Many adults who did not have the advantage of regular early childhood office visits developed an aversion to dentists and dental treatments, creating greater potential for oral health care problems in the long-term. The importance of regular office visits is most evident when this routine is not followed and subsequent problems develop, becoming painful, debilitating and costly to correct.

Maintaining your basic oral health is very importance to us. By scheduling routine dental checkups you will maintain your family’s oral health in both the short and long term, ensuring bright and beautiful smiles for all of you!
