Regular Dental Exams

Dr. Christopher Henes and his dental team are proud to offer a wide variety of services, including bi yearly dental exams in Aurora, CO

Dr. Christopher Henes strongly believes in taking a preventative approach to dental care. Promoting health through preventive and routine hygiene care is the heart of our practice. Also through regular preventative maintenance we can catch things before they become an issue causing you less pain and inconveniences in the long run.  More than just “cleaning”, these visits allow us to monitor your health and catch potential problems early.

Regular Dental Exams

Because we are committed to your oral dental care, we recommend a thorough evaluation and cleaning at least every six months.  It is also at this time we will review your oral health goals to make sure that you are meeting them. Whether you are here for a new smile or here for your regular check up, our team at Iliff Family Dental will help you achieve your oral health goals. Most dental problems start small, but can rapidly grow. Regular dental exams are the best way to eliminate the growth phase of dental problems and minimize the time and money you spend in the dental chair.

Fluoride

  • Fluoride varnish – With Fluoride varnish you paint this on your teeth. When the fluoride is painted on your teeth it stays on for a minimum of 4 hours. During this time your teeth take in the fluoride to help strengthen your teeth and help prevent sensitivity. Once the flouride is painted on your teeth you have to wait 2 minutes before you can eat or drink.  We also recommend nothing hard or crunchy for four hours along with anything too hot temperature wise because this can melt the fluoride. This can be applied in as little as 30 seconds but it can do wonders to your teeth.
  • Fluoride foam – The other method of applying fluoride on your teeth is using foam and a tray.  This application is a little different than the varnish because you have to leave it on your teeth for four minutes .

During your regular dental exams, we will complete the following:

  • Update and review details of your medical and dental history, including list of medications.
  • A thorough visual and digital oral cancer screening
  • A series of digital dental x–rays that provide information regarding cavities, condition of existing fillings and condition of bone around the teeth and jaws.
  • A periodontal dental exam, which helps in the evaluation of your gums.
  • A TMJ and bite evaluation to check for bite problems, worn teeth or jaw joint-related issues.
  • A thorough assessment of individual teeth to look for cavities, broken restorations and cracked teeth.
