We can’t wait to meet you!

Dental Exam

During your initial dental visit, your dentist will conduct a thorough dental exam, which includes essential elements. At regular check-up appointments, both your dentist and hygienist will perform the following procedures:

  1. Examination of Diagnostic X-rays: X-rays are crucial for detecting issues like decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. They also help assess tooth and root positions.
  2. Oral Cancer Screening: A comprehensive screening of the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, and gums is done to identify any signs of oral cancer.
  3. Gum Disease Evaluation: The gums and bone surrounding the teeth are examined for indications of periodontal disease.
  4. Tooth Decay Examination: All tooth surfaces are inspected for decay using specialized dental instruments.
  5. Examination of Existing Restorations: Current fillings, crowns, and other dental restorations are checked for their condition and effectiveness.
