Dental Exams & Xrays


Routine dental exams are important to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Additionally, they can help to avoid the financial costs associated with large treatment plans later on. The Academy of General Dentistry recommends twice yearly checkups for people of all ages. At this frequency, most problems can be caught while they remain in an early stage. At Mountain Dental, we prioritize prevention above all else. We make your six-month check-ups and cleaning visits fast, gentle and fun. We catch things early to keep you in top health! Maintaining your mouth is our number one priority. We are dedicated to making your experience as pain free as possible.

How it's done

The dentist first examines your mouth visually, using dental equipment such as mouth mirrors, dental picks, and high intensity lights. They will look for cracked and decayed teeth, as well as review other important items such as:

Additionally, we may take digital diagnostic x-rays to reveal any other hidden problems, especially in the areas below the gums. Bitewing x-rays are typically taken every 12 months and a full mouth series of x-rays, is taken every 3-5 years. Dental X-rays help the dentist visualize diseases of the teeth and surrounding tissue that cannot be seen with a simple oral exam. In addition, X-rays help find and treat dental problems early in their development, which can potentially save you money, unnecessary discomfort, and maybe even your life.
