Dental Conditions That Can Be Found During Your Dental Exam

To wait until you experience pain is certainly not a good way to find out you if you have a dental condition. Since your teeth are protected by enamel, which is the hardest substance in the body, pain usually does not occur until your dental condition is well advanced and your smile is at risk.

Dr. Adrian Guerra - Dentist, North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Juno Beach, Jupiter, FL

If you have some catching up to do where your oral health is concerned and are looking for a dentist in North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Juno and surrounding areas, Dr. Adrian Guerra is currently welcoming new patients at AMG Dental Group. Dr. Guerra can help you achieve your best smile possible, and catch some dental conditions before they progress too far.

Dental Decay

It's not always true that dentists can detect decay through a visual exam, which is why dental x-rays assist with early diagnosis. When decay is left undetected, it can advance very quickly, which can lead to an infection in your nerve which would require a root canal.

Cracked Teeth

Your dentist's trained eye can look for cracked teeth which may not be easy to spot. Finding a cracked tooth or teeth is essential to maintaining your oral health because a cracked tooth can lead to tooth loss unless it is protected with a dental crown. At AMG Dental Group, our goal is to avoid more serious dental conditions that arise when you miss your dental exams. We recommend dental exams at least twice yearly so that we can identify any problems that put your oral health at risk.

Gum Disease

Periodontitis, also generally called gum disease or periodontal disease, begins with bacterial growth in your mouth and may end, if not properly treated, with tooth loss. Early gum disease may cause mild symptoms that can be overlooked. Gum disease may progress painlessly, producing few obvious signs, even in the late stages of the disease. Our hygienist will measure your gums to determine their oral health.

Digital Dental X-Rays

Digital radiography (known as digital X-ray) uses an electronic sensor instead of traditional X-ray film to capture X-ray images. The digital images are then stored directly to a computer, which allows Dr. Guerra to diagnose dental problems early, when they are easier to treat. When combined with regular dental cleanings and other preventive dentistry, such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants, you can enjoy a healthy smile! Also, another benefit is that digital X-rays produce up to 90% less radiation compared to traditional dental X-rays
