Dental Check-ups

Check Ups

Regular check-ups are an integral part of preventive dentistry; they allow for the identification and treatment of dental and oral conditions before they develop into more serious problems.

A healthy mouth and body go hand in hand. Regular check-ups help in maintaining a healthy appearance that can increase peace of mind, and consequently, quality of life.

At Horizon Dental we strive to provide optimal dental health care to all our patients. We use modern technology and equipment to deliver excellent value and level of service. Our wonderful team will make your visits as positive and comfortable as possible.

How Often Should You Visit the Dentist?

The recommended frequency you visit the dentist will depend on the risk of developing oral health problems. At your first complete examination, Dr. Azuma will perform a thorough assessment of factors affecting your oral health to recommend the best frequency for you to visit the dentist. If you or a family member is more susceptible to plaque and tartar build-up that can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, then Dr. Azuma may recommend more frequent visits to help you attain a healthier mouth.

It’s recommended that you plan your child’s first dental check-up at an early age; preferably, by the time they get their first teeth. We want to establish positive dental experiences for your child, teaching them the importance of good oral hygiene at a young age. Our excellent dental hygienists at Horizon Dental make this process easier than ever with their expertise in using gentle techniques to make the experience as comfortable as possible.

Benefits of Regular Check-ups

Regular check-ups will allow you and your dentist to detect early signs of tooth decay and gum disease. In addition, an oral cancer screening is performed at each and every examination. These regular appointments will ensure that you detect any oral signs of disease early and intervene before they can become more serious problems. Some of the key benefits of regular check-ups include, but are not limited to:

  • Cleaner teeth and healthier gums
  • Healthier smile
  • Fresher breath
  • Taking preventive measures against gum diseases
  • Reducing tooth sensitivity
  • Preventing cavities
  • Early detection of serious conditions

New Patients and First Appointments

With your first visit to our office, our staff will guide you through completing a new patient form. Once we have a clear understanding of your current health status and any concerns you may have, we’ll be able to do a thorough examination. Getting to know you and the condition of your mouth will allow us to establish a personalized treatment plan that will help you attain your oral health goals.

At Horizon Dental, we value your time and will ensure that each appointment is as efficient and comfortable as possible. Delivering excellent dental treatment, personalized care, and building relationships with our patients is our top priority.

If you are on a dental insurance plan, please bring all your insurance information so we can assist you with making claims.
