Dental Examinations

100 million Americans fail to see a dentist each year. Dental examinations and good oral hygiene can prevent most dental disease. According to the American Dental Association, it is recommended that you should visit the dentist every 6 months. Dental examinations are critical to your overall health and can prevent serious medical problems.

Dr. Jay Elbrecht and his team at Advanced Dental Care of Anderson understands how hard it is to fit a regular dental checkup into a busy schedule. Requesting an oral examination is fast and easy. We have found and corrected many oral health issues through dental examinations.

Our dental examination process

During a dental examination, Dr. Jay Elbrecht or a hygienist will clean your teeth and check for cavities and gum disease. They will evaluate your risk of developing other oral health problems! A dental exam might also include dental X-rays (radiographs) or other diagnostic procedures.

Dr. Jay Elbrecht can remove a lot of tartar and plaque during a regular cleaning. You will still have to perform proper maintenance on your own mouth each and every day. Routine dental cleanings and proper daily care will help keep your teeth and mouth clean, fresh and disease free.
