Dental Exams

Benefits of Regular Tooth and Mouth Care

A comprehensive dental exam by your dentist takes place at your initial dental visit.  Regular check-up exams with your dentist and hygienist will include the following:

  • Examination of diagnostic x-rays: Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss.  X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
  • Oral cancer screening: Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Look for tooth decay: All tooth surfaces are checked for decay with special dental instruments.
  • Examine condition of existing dental work: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.
