Promoting Oral Health: Routine Checkups

Regardless of your at-home dental care regimen, routine checkups with your dentist are essential to oral health. While your brushing and flossing habits may be up to par, clean teeth aren’t the only thing covered in routine checkups. Of course, brushing and flossing are necessary, and Dr. Rosenfeld will even provide your with a thorough teeth cleaning, but there’s much more involved in routine checkups. In short, they’re needed in preventing a variety of both dental and health issues, but ultimately, checkups ensure proper oral health.

Here at our Solana Beach practice, general dentist Dr. Rosenfeld is committed to providing nearby patients with the best in dental care. Backed by an expert team, Dr. Rosenfeld provides patients in Solana Beach and the surrounding areas with a broad range of dental services, and these include routine checkups, as they’re an essential part of promoting great oral health. Take a moment to learn more about the importance of regular checkups, as well as what’s involved in the process. We’ll gladly fill you in.

Routine Checkups: What’s Involved?

As mentioned, routine checkups aren’t necessarily limited to teeth cleanings. While checkups most often include a thorough cleaning, there are plenty more reasons to visit the dentist regularly. While you may brush and floss as recommended, that doesn’t mean dental issues won’t arise. Plus, you may not be aware of some issues, as pain and appearance aren’t always factors. At a routine checkup, Dr. Rosenfeld can check for issues like these. In addition to cleanings, a routine checkup can include any of the following:

  • Oral Cancer Screening: Oral cancer is expected to affect over 40,000 Americans in 2016 alone. Dr. Rosenfeld offers oral cancer screenings at checkups to ensure you’re free of such. You should have these done once a year.
  • Check for Gum Disease: Gingivitis and gum disease are two common issues within patients, but they don’t always notice the initial signs. Fortunately, Dr. Rosenfeld can help and check for issues during your checkup.
  • Address Tooth Pain: If you’ve been experiencing any tooth pain, you can address this with Dr. Rosenfeld during the checkup and he can look for the source of the problem.
  • Additional Issues: In addition to gum disease and oral cancer, Dr. Rosenfeld can look for any concerning issues during your checkup, then schedule an appointment for any necessary treatment to follow.

Benefits of Regular Checkups

Of course, when you come into our Solana Beach office for regular checkups, both your oral and overall health are benefitted. This is because some dental issues can, like gum disease, can actually affect more than just your mouth. But the benefits of routine checkups don’t end there. Take a look at the list below to see more:

  • Prevent cavities and gum disease
  • Maintain a whiter smile
  • Prevent risk of future issues
  • Keeps breath fresh
  • Avoid tooth loss and/or extraction
  • Promote better oral and overall health

"Dr. Rosenfeld is the best! I’ve been going to him for 10+ years now and he’s been nothing but caring and an excellent dentist to me. He really makes a point to make sure that you’re comfortable throughout the whole appointment. He even gave me lip balm during working on my cavity to make sure I was as comfortable as possible! When I come in, I feel nervous and dreadful but Dr. Rosenfeld somehow always has a way of leaving me with a smile when we are done. Not that i will hope for another cavity though, of course."

"Dr. Rosenfeld and his staff are absolutely AMAZING.  I have a fear of dentists and dentistry, but Dr. Rosenfeld and his outstanding team went the extra mile to make sure that I felt comfortable, reassured me that they would do anything and everything to take great care of me, and never made me feel anything but a very valued patient.  I never knew that an office would go so far to help me get through some challenging (at least for me) dental procedures.  Words cannot begin to express my gratitude for this office.  If only all businesses could provide the same level of customer service..  Oh, did I forget to mention that their work is top notch.  Worth every penny!"

"As good as it gets is correct!  Dr. Rosenfeld and his team are no-ka-oi!  He is a caring and kind professional with a bit o bend toward perfectionism.  The latter being a good thing when it comes to one's teeth.  At 58 he filled my first EVER cavity.  I was a bit nervous not having had that procedure ever before.  Dr. Rosenfeld took the time to make sure the area was numb to minimize my discomfort.  We agreed I probably needed a little more so he administered two more doses.  No discomfort whatsoever.  Toward the end of last year, I needed my first ever cap to repair a fissure in one of my molars.  This is where the perfectionism came into play - Dr. Rosenfeld made sure the cap exactly matched the color of my teeth. Dr. Rosenfeld is a marvelous practitioner!  I've recommended four friends to him and they all love him and his incredible team."
