Wichita, KS -

Getting a check up from your dentist every 6 months is very important for oral health and hygiene. At Omido Exquisite Cosmetic & General Dentistry, you can be sure that your trip to the dentist's office is quick, painless, and worth your time.

When you come in for a check up with Dr. Omido, the first thing that's done is a teeth cleaning. A dental hygienist will thoroughly clean all the surfaces of your teeth to remove plaque, tartar and stains. A clean mouth allows Dr. Omido and his team to get a better look at your teeth. Sometimes your check up will include an x-ray, which can show Dr. Omido if you have any loss of bone around your teeth, cysts, abscesses or cavities. Your dental hygienist can instruct you on the best ways to brush and floss your teeth. By properly cleaning your teeth at home, you're more likely to avoid dental problems.

Once the dental hygienist is finished with their part of the exam, Dr. Omido will examine your teeth. He'll check the color and contours of your gums and look for signs of wear on your teeth. He'll also check your jaw joint to make sure there are no problems with your bite. Once Dr. Omido checks you over, your exam is done. If there are any problems that need to be addressed, Dr. Omido will schedule a time to fix them.

Though regular check ups are quick and easy, they are very important for your oral health. Neglecting dental conditions can cause infected teeth, tooth loss, shifting teeth, receding gums, and painful jaw joints. The only way to know if you have a dental condition is to get a check up.
