It takes more than daily brushing and flossing to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Routine dental exams are essential for maintaining your oral health. 

Some people may think they can push off their dental exams, but these exams are crucial in helping us monitor your oral health, take preventive measures, and treat any issues early. Whether you’re two or 102, we believe you and your family can greatly benefit from visiting your Tampa, FL dentist.  

Routine Oral Care Promotes Good Health 

Dr. Mancuso is a highly skilled and experienced Tampa dentist who helps patients of all ages achieve and maintain excellent oral health. Taking care of your smile requires proper dental care habits at home and professional dental visits. 

Dental exams at our Tampa dental office ensure that your teeth and gums are in tip-top shape so you can reap the benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile. 

According to the American Dental Association, untreated oral health conditions can lead to tooth loss, cavities, gum disease, and even cardiovascular conditions and diabetes. A healthy smile means a healthy body! 

What to Expect During a Dental Exam  

Dental exams are important because they allow Dr. Mancuso to evaluate the health of your teeth and gums so he can promptly treat any problems if they arise. 

During your dental exam, Dr. Mancuso will do the following:

  1. Take full x-rays of your mouth to identify any potential underlying issues 
  2. Clean your teeth by removing plaque, tartar, and harmful bacteria 
  3. Check for cavities, gum disease, and any abnormalities
  4. Evaluate your risk for oral health issues 
  5. Examine your face, neck, jawbone, and mouth for any irregularities
  6. Perform a thorough oral cancer screening 

Routine dental exams and cleanings are essential for keeping your oral health where it needs to be. Dr. Mancuso provides comprehensive services for patients of all ages in a warm and inviting atmosphere. One of our priorities is your comfort, which is why we always strive to make sure you are relaxed and feel at home when you visit us.
