A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by one of our experienced practitioners at your initial dental visit. At regular check-up exams, one of our dentists and a hygienist will include the following:
Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): This procedure is essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
Oral cancer screening: We will check your face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
Gum disease evaluation: We will check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
Examination of tooth decay: We will check all tooth surfaces for decay using special dental instruments designed for early detection.
Examination of existing restorations: We will check current fillings, crowns, and removable appliances.
