Many people who take excellent care of their oral health at home often ask the question of why they need to visit the dentist regularly. That’s because many dental and oral problems do not become visible or cause pain during their early stages. Examples of such issues are cavities, gum disease, and cancer.
Additionally, regular dental exams not just protect your oral health, but also your overall health. For example, symptoms of some systematic diseases like diabetes, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis manifest in the mouth first.
Routine visits to Jonathan J. Golab, DDS, PA can help detect any disease or disorder in its early stage and allow them to be treated quickly.

At Jonathan J. Golab, DDS, PA, Dr. Jonathan Golab will first perform a visual exam of your entire mouth, including the teeth, gums and other soft tissues , as well as your head and neck area. The exam will include these steps:
To make sure we give you the proper treatment, we will review your dental and medical history. Several diseases, especially systemic and autoimmune disorders, can cause a greater risk of gum disease. Also, bring a list of any medication that you are taking so that we do not prescribe you medicines that may negatively react with the ones you are already taking.
Do not hesitate to let us know if you have sensed any changes in your mouth like prolonged bleeding, persistent bad breath, lumps, burning sensations, cavity, tooth sensitivity, or other issues. By informing us of these issues beforehand, you can help us make an early and more accurate diagnosis.
