What to Expect During a Dental Check-Up

If you are visiting the dentist for a basic checkup, the doctor will most likely start by taking x-rays. These pictures allow the dentist to see if there are any cavities in between the teeth.

The dentist will also use a mirror and explorer to perform a more thorough exam. The explorer helps the dentist determine if there are any cavities in the teeth. You can also expect to get a good cleaning.
