Dental Exams and X-Rays

Routine dental exams are important to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. The Academy of General Dentistry recommends checkups twice a year for people of all ages. At this frequency, most problems can be caught while they remain in an early stage, eliminating large treatment plans. During an exam, our highly trained dentists will examine your mouth visually and with digital dental x-rays.

These techniques allow us to check for cavities, cracked teeth and oral cancer. Through examination allows our dentists to make a customized treatment plan to meet all your dental needs.

At our dental exam patient’s services completed will include:

  • Medical history review: The dentist will assess how any new medical conditions or illnesses may affect your dental health.
  • Examination of tooth decay: Your mouth will be checked for cracked or decayed teeth.
  • Oral cancer screening: The face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums will be checked for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: Your gums and bone around the teeth will be checked for any evidence of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of existing restorations: Current fillings, crowns, and other restorations are made sure to be in good order.
