You may already know that having regular dental checkups with an experienced Poway dentist can greatly help with your dental health, but did you know that checkups can also help you save money? Although a dental checkup evaluates your oral health, many assume that it only covers your teeth. The truth is that it can cover a whole range of diseases that if caught early can be treated affordably and easily.
Early Detection of Diseases
Knowledgeable Poway dentists like Dr. Justene Doan, DDS of A+ Family Dentistry often start a dental exam by checking your head and neck first. This focuses on your facial and neck area, as well as your lymph nodes and your lower jaw joints. Checks in these areas can show whether you have developed oral cancer or TMJ disorder, both of which can be treated if caught early.
