What is a Dental Exam?

Regular dental exams are a crucial part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy. These regular dental exams will include:

  • Diagnostic x-rays: These are essential in the detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss, as well as determining tooth and root positions.
  • Oral cancer screening: They will check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: The gums and bones around the teeth will be checked for signs of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of tooth decay: Your dentist will check your tooth surfaces for signs of decay.
  • Examination of existing restorations: All current fillings, crowns, etc. will be checked to ensure they do not need to be replaced.

    What Happens During A Dental Exam

    During your visit to the dentist for a dental exam, your dentist or oral health specialist will clean your teeth and check for cavities, gum disease, and other oral health issues. During a dental exam, your risk of developing oral health issues are evaluated and some procedures include dental X-rays, and flossing, and polish.
