What Are Dental Checkups?

Dental checkups, also known as dental exams, are routine appointments with your Farmington Hills dentist to assess the state of your oral health. During these appointments, Dr. Shlafer will examine your teeth, gums, tongue, and mouth to identify any potential problems and recommend appropriate treatments.

Benefits of Dental Checkups

  • Preventive Care: Dental checkups help to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. During these appointments, your dentist will clean your teeth, remove plaque and tartar, and give you advice on how to maintain proper oral hygiene.
  • Digital X-Rays: Dr. Shlafer uses digital x-rays to get a clear picture of your teeth and gums, allowing him to detect any problems that may not be visible to the naked eye. This technology also reduces your exposure to radiation.
  • Oral Cancer Screenings: Dental checkups include oral cancer screenings to detect any signs of the disease early. Early detection is crucial in treating oral cancer and improving the chances of successful treatment.
  • Fluoride Applications: Fluoride applications help to prevent tooth decay and strengthen tooth enamel. Dr. Shlafer may recommend fluoride treatments based on your individual needs.

Many dental insurance plans cover routine dental exams and preventive care, such as cleanings and X-rays. However, the extent of coverage can vary depending on your specific plan.
