Exams and Dental X-rays
With age, dental care becomes increasingly important for adults. Every six months, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends dental check-ups and cleanings. Maintaining an oral health routine is essential to maintaining a healthy mouth, preventing cavities and gum disease, as it allows conditions to be detected earlier and treated accordingly, resulting in better outcomes. We at Best Smile Dental understand that every patient has specific dental care needs. As a result, we provide individualized care for patients of all ages in the Philadelphia area and offer a range of general dentistry services. Our dentists take advantage of the latest advances in dentistry. We utilize technology to give our patients the best experience possible. Your dentist uses dental X-rays (radiographs) to evaluate your oral health. Radiation-free X-rays are used to capture images of the interior of your teeth and gums. Your dentist can use this to help identify problems, such as cavities, tooth decay, impacted teeth, or any other abnormality. For a routine dental cleaning and exam, we recommend that you visit us every six months. We may recommend more frequent visits if necessary, and we encourage you to contact us if you experience a dental emergency, pain, or injury.
