How important are regular dental exams?

Your smile is the first impression given to others. You want it to look great and remain healthy for a lifetime. By attending regular dental exams with our team at Kelley Family Dental Center in the Albuquerque, New Mexico, area, you can rest easy knowing that your smile is in good hands! Drs. Jonathan and Gretchen Kelley are available to provide these evaluations and make recommendations for excellent oral health and wellness!

What can I expect during my upcoming dental exam?

Dental examinations are essential for achieving and maintaining oral health and wellness. They are an excellent opportunity for our dental team to evaluate the health of the teeth and gums and catch any problems early enough for successful intervention, such as the signs of tooth decay and periodontal disease. These issues are entirely preventable with proper oral hygiene habits and regular visits to the dentist. Left undiagnosed and untreated, they can become serious issues for the smile and require expensive and laborious dental procedures to restore in the future. This is why our team takes time to educate patients on how to care for their smile each day to protect it from unwanted and unexpected damage whenever possible.

Do I need dental x-rays?

Our team also offers digital dental X-rays, which expose our patients to much less radiation exposure than traditional dental X-rays do. We always perform them at a patient’s first appointment with us to get a good idea of their oral health. We may also take dental X-rays periodically to monitor oral health or to diagnose a condition that may require the assistance of our professionals to address.
