What Is a Dental Checkup?

A dental checkup is a dental examination performed by your provider here at the Bixby Knolls office. Your dentist will check the health of your teeth, gums, tongue, and mouth and identify any visible problems. You may also have dental x-rays performed to look for problems that are not visible.

Why Should I Get a Dental Checkup?

Dental checkups are a great way to catch developing issues early before they require costly restorative care. Your provider will be able to spot visible issues such as tooth decay, inflamed gums, and other oral issues that might need to be addressed.

What Happens if You Find a Problem During My Dental Checkup?

It happens all the time and it is nothing to worry about- that is what the checkup is designed to do! Your provider will carefully evaluate the issue and recommend a treatment plan. You may need to have x-rays or photographs taken to assist in the evaluation process.

Once you have agreed to a treatment plan, our staff will contact your insurance to find out what is covered and what you will have to pay out of pocket. Most problems are easy to take care of, especially if you have been having regular dental checkups.

How Much Does It Cost to Get a
Dental Checkup in Bixby Knolls?

Most dental insurance plans will cover two checkups a year with little or no copay. When you make your appointment, we will contact your insurance and find out what they will and will not cover so that you will know what you will have to pay ahead of time.

We also accept cash patients and offer a variety of payment options and financing arrangements to help you get the dental care you need. Our staff will be happy to discuss these options with you if you would like.

Should Children Get Dental Checkups?

Absolutely. Children should start getting dental checkups as soon as they have two teeth that touch or reach their first birthday, whichever is sooner. They should get a dental checkup every six months thereafter just like adults.
