Dental assistants should recommend to their patients that a regular dental exam will help preserve dental health. Dentists and dental assistants will try to keep treatment affordable while still providing the most valuable treatment they can provide. A health mouth is only achieved with regular visits along with an oral health care routine.
Hygienists and dental assistants will need to see patients about every six months to clean and polish a patients teeth and make sure the oral care is going good. A dental assistant will also make sure that all x-rays have been taken or take x-rays so oral health care can be explained. Usually a dental assistant with the guidance from a dentist can talk with patients about other oral health care that might be needed.
Dental Surgery – Dental assistants help with these procedures which include everything from a simple tooth extraction to a complicated procedure like dental implant surgery. This is done to help relieve pain as well as to boost the appearance and function of the patient’s smile. It will often be performed in the dental office without having to be referred to another office.
Panoramic X-ray – Dental assistants will often perform this x-ray of all of the mouth as well as upper and lower jaws to gain a clear picture of the patients mouth’s condition. It will show the entire mouth in one image, this helps dental assistants identify problems like fractures, bone abnormalities, infections, tumors, and impacted teeth. This imagery method is often used when planning treatments like dentures, braces and implants.
Oral Dental Exam – This will help detect problems such as fillings that are deteriorating or other conditions affecting patients health such as oral cancer and gum disease. A dental assistant will explore each tooth, gums, the tongue.
Dental Care Basics that a dental assistant recommends to patients:
Brush minimum twice a day – Do not rush brushing. Proper brushing usually requires two minutes. Also, do not forget the gum line, the areas around fillings, and hard-to-reach areas.
Clean between teeth – A toothbrush can’t reach all the areas to be cleaned. As such, it is very crucial to use floss or interdental cleaners to clean the areas that the toothbrush cannot reach. Even brushing the tongue is important since this will remove bacteria to ensure fresh breath.
Try a balanced diet – Patients should make it a habit to eat a balanced diet that contains foods from the five major food groups. Limiting snacks that contain high levels of sugar.
Go to the dentist regularly – Dental visits must be done every six months or more for early detection of any dental problem including tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer. Routine fluoride application is also a must. This can be done during routine dental exam and cleaning.
Dental care is something that a dental assistant can help their patients understand. A patient’s smile will greatly depend on these basic practices. A good dental assisting professional makes sure that the patient knows about these simple tasks to help with their oral care.

A dental assistant can help with the root canal process to check to see if there has been any damage to the pulp or nerve of the tooth. This damage, if serious, can lead to infection and will cause the mouth to swell and be very painful.
Usually the root canal process is not very painful despite what it looks like. It really doesn’t take up to much time either since it can be done in a single visit with the help of a dental assistant.
The patient often needs to make several trips to the dental office while the dental assistant helps deal with pain or other complications. Special restoration, such as the application of a dental crown, is included in the procedure. A multiple visit treatment from the dental assistant and doctor is often broken down into two visits. The first one is where the dental assistant will do cleaning and help the dentist shape the area for the root canal. The second will be where the patient will get the actual restoration done.
Today, the single-appointment approach has become more popular with the help of dental technology and dental assistants. Most people prefer this because of their busy schedules. Everything that needs to be done (including X-rays) can all be accomplished at the same time all in one place. In a single sitting, a root canal process treatment can be completed without the quality getting compromised. These single sitting appointments can take just 30 minutes to over an hour if there are no complications present.
If a patient needs a root canal, the advice that dental assistants should give is for the patient to set aside adequate time for it in their schedule. This is particularly important if they wish to have the entire treatment done in a single appointment. The patient won’t want to try to rush the dental assistant and the doctor.

Kelly and Michelle are AWESOME! Great & loving instructors who make this process soooo smooth (its not easy) but this dental assistant course is definitely worth it.
We were taught in a digital / state of the art dental office and had the pleasure of learning from 6 General dentist, 6 hygienist, a periodontist and oral surgeon as well as other dental assistants who were very knowledgeable and helpful in the process of receiving our certifications. I cried and at times I did want to give up but they never let me fall and always encouraged and pushed me to be the best DA, I could be. I am forever grateful for this program and my instructors.
