Check-Up

Regular dental check-ups are non-invasive and painless and essential for good dental health.

Regular Dental Check-Up

What to Expect

✓ Your first dental check-up involves a discussion about your medical history, including any existing dental and medical conditions. Also, the dentist may ask about your diet, regular supplements, and medication.

✓ Dental X-rays are taken, revealing cavities and other teeth-related problems. A physical examination completes the evaluation of your gums and teeth.

✓ After the examination, the dentist explains your results and options. If cavities are discovered, the dentist suggests fillings or crowns. Broken or missing teeth can be fixed with caps, bridges, or implants. Infections are first satisfied with antibiotics before dental procedures.

✓ If your teeth and gums are in good shape the dentist may proceed with dental cleaning to remove plaque and tartar build-up.

✓ Finally, recommendations are provided along with brushing and flossing instructions and answers to any questions you may have.

✓ Subsequent check-ups are faster since your dental baseline has been established. Problem areas are identified and recorded, while you and the dentist discuss concerns and recommendations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental check-ups and teeth cleaning are recommended every six months, which sometimes varies by patient. If your teeth and gums are in good condition, and plaque build-up is minimal between visits the dentist may suggest annual check-ups.

Alternately, high-risk patients may be advised to have three or four check-ups per year.

High-risk patients include:
✓ Patients who smoke or chew tobacco
✓ Pregnant women
✓ Patients with diabetes
✓ Patients with gum diseases
✓ Patients with a high plaque and tartar build-up between cleanings
✓ Persons with low infection immunity

Your dentist will help you determine your ideal check-up schedule. Regular check-ups are an effective proactive solution to keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy, promote good breath and keep you smiling.

My family and I have been going to Arat Dental for over 7 years now, and there’s a reason why we still go! - the dentist is the best! She’s detailed, gentle and explains every step of the process while she’s performing a cleaning or procedure.

Ararat Dental has been our family dentist for over 10 years at both of the jersey City and North Bergen locations. Dr. Youssoufian has a wonder sweet and caring demeanor. The staff is always very nice and courteous and they are always able to accommodate you for any emergency visits you might have. She’s also very thorough and considerate. She’s isn’t the type of Dr. to preform any major, or risky procedures, unless absolutely necessary. This has saved me more than one tooth and a lot of money, where another Dr. might be eager to perform a root canal or oral surgery, etc. She and her staff are wonderful and I can’t recommend them enough.
