Regular Dental Checkups for Adults & Children in Lewiston

Ask any dentist and they will tell you that you should be seeing a dentist at least twice per year. In fact, most dental insurances are designed to cover these two yearly visits. No matter your age, you are never too old to see a dentist for a regular checkup. Dental checkups can help prevent larger dental issues by catching them when they are minor. A lot of dental issues can be prevented and even reversed if caught quickly. That is why every kid, teen, and parent should be seeing their dentist every 6 months.

What Happens At A Dental Checkup & Exam?

At Joy Family Dentistry, we provide a variety of dental services at our regular checkups and exams. Contrary to popular belief, even if you or your child is a superstar at taking care of your teeth and gums, you still need to see a dentist regularly. Dentists have instruments and tools that can help remove plaque that mouthwash, brushing, and flossing simply can’t. When you schedule an appointment for yourself or your little one at our dental office in Lewiston we will provide a cleaning, an exam, and make sure you and your kids have everything you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Our hygienists will remove plaque, demonstrate proper brushing and flossing, and provide dental sealants & x-rays if needed. A dentist will then provide a dental exam to check for any early signs of decay or other issues.

Pediatric Dental Checkups & Exams in Lewiston

As dentists, we know that not every child is excited to see a dentist, even for a simple checkup. That is why we work hard to make our office comfortable and fun for your kids. And of course, scheduling your own appointment and leading by example goes a long way to prevent dental anxiety and fears for your children. When you make an appointment for your kids, our friendly team will make sure your kids are comfortable throughout the entire experience. And on top of getting the dental treatments they need, our team will also teach and encourage them to make great dental habits that will last a lifetime.


Dental X-Rays

Traditionally, dental X-rays are taken yearly or every other dental checkup. X-ray imaging can help track your child’s teeth as the primary teeth come-in/fall-out and the permanent teeth replace them. X-rays are highly valuable for both adults and kids because they can help dentists track any issues with tooth decay.

Dental Sealants

Sealants are recommended for adults and teenagers. Dental sealants are often applied to the adult molars to prevent dental decay and cavities from forming. Often, your dental hygienists will provide a dental sealant during your regular checkup. However, sealants are rarely used on primary teeth (baby teeth).

Emergency Dental Care

Beyond providing routine dental care, we provide a variety of dental services including emergency dental work. If you or your child has a severe toothache, a broken/chipped/cracked tooth, a loose or lost filling, or another dental emergency do not hesitate to give our team a call to set up an emergency dental appointment.
