The Importance of Dental Exams

Partaking in regular oral assessments allows youto take an active stand to preserve the health of your smile. A thorough dental exam at The Tooth Studio detects tooth caries, periodontal disease, cancer of the mouth, and various other concerns that might be hurting your oral and overall health.

Oral Cancer Screening

About 50,000 people in the U.S. receive a diagnosis of oral cancer each year; however, the condition may be incredibly treatable if detected immediately. Oral cancer is defined as a quickly expanding multiplication of cells that can develop inside of or throughout the oral cavity, like on the mouth, face, tongue, saliva glands, jawbone, or the throat, along with other oral structures. Dr. Gujaran performs an oral cancer assessment at each comprehensive exam to detect benign cells, malignant tumors, or various other irregular areas. Some of the typical symptoms of oral cancer are sores, bumps, raised or textured areas, and inflamed or pale regions of skin. Certain areas of concern might be excised and analyzed, or you could be sent to an oral cancer doctor for thorough management.

Who Should Get Dental Exams?

Danbury, CT locals of all ages would benefit from receiving oral exams no less than one time each year for preventive care. Dental exams might also be done as needed to evaluate oral sensitivity, trauma, or further localized problems that may arise between appointments. Periodontal disease, the leading factor in missing teeth, and tooth decay might not cause notable signs to form until the more advanced stages. When oral problems are discovered immediately, our team can often provide a wider range of options for management.

The ADA (also known as the American Dental Association) states that all infants and toddlers should see their dental practitioner before they are one year old. To treat kids at this early age, our team can focus on many issues (like the eruption of new teeth and sucking on the thumb) and guide you in cleaning your child's teeth and gums as their jawbone tissues develop. Routine comprehensive oral exams could help your growing family develop proper oral habits at a young age and make sure they achieve glowing smiles for many years.

What To Expect During Your Visit

Annual exams at our Danbury, CT practice always include a review of your health history. A member of our team may also talk with you about any health problems or aesthetic smile goals you have to find out more about your overall dental well-being. At certain yearly exams, a set of detailed x-rays might be taken to give Dr. Gujaran more knowledge of the health of your enamel and bone tissues. She might then perform a screening for cancer of the mouth, evaluate the alignment of your arches and jaw joints, and assess your teeth for abnormalities, as well as the wear of any dental appliances. A gum exam can also be conducted to detect possible areas of periodontal disease.

About Us

After Your Dental Exam

Practicing good oral health routines (such as routine brushing twice a day, as well as flossing at least one time daily) may help to reduce your chances for developing tooth decay and gum disease. Dr. Gujaran performs comprehensive dental exams typically one time a year, usually during one of a patient's twice-yearly teeth cleaning appointments, but may arrange exams more frequently for patients with certain dental wellness disorders. Our office performs a large number of comprehensive solutions, like state-of-the-art dental fillings, bridges, and ceramic veneers, to help suit your special smile goals. When beneficial, our dental professionals can help you arrange check-in visits.

Insurance Coverage for Exams

Dental assessments are classified as preventive solutions, which means that they are generally paid for by insurance programs. Prior to your exam, a member of our staff will review your personal plan and inform you of any potential additional expenses. The Tooth Studio is thrilled to offer a number of easy payment methods to help assure that all individuals can get excellent, accessible treatment.

Do I really need to floss?

Yes, flossing is essential. It removes food particles and plaque from between your teeth, areas where a toothbrush can't reach. Regular flossing helps prevent gum disease and tooth decay, maintaining your oral health.

Does a rinse or mouthwash help?

Using a mouthwash can be a beneficial addition to your oral hygiene routine. It helps reduce bacteria, freshens breath, and can reach places that brushing and flossing might miss. However, it should not replace regular brushing and flossing.

What are early signs of dental trouble?

Early signs of dental issues include increased sensitivity to hot or cold, persistent bad breath, bleeding or swollen gums, and discomfort when biting or chewing. It's important to address these symptoms promptly at The Tooth Studio for effective prevention and treatment.

How often should I replace my toothbrush?

It's recommended to replace your toothbrush every three to four months or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won't do a good job of cleaning your teeth, potentially leaving behind plaque and food particles. 

Can dental exams detect oral cancer?

Yes, during a dental exam at The Tooth Studio, the dentist not only checks for cavities or gum disease but also screens for oral cancer. This involves examining your mouth, gums, and tongue for any signs of abnormalities or lesions. 

Is it normal for my gums to bleed when I brush or floss?

Occasional bleeding from the gums can happen if you brush too hard or if you're adjusting to a new flossing routine. However, if your gums bleed regularly, it might be a sign of gum disease. Early intervention at The Tooth Studio can help manage gum disease and prevent further complications. Always use a soft-bristled toothbrush and gentle flossing techniques to minimize gum irritation.
