A key aspect of maintaining good dental health!
Dental exams are an important part of maintaining good oral health.
At your comprehensive dental exam we will examine the jaw joint, do an oral cancer screening and evaluate the head and neck for any tenderness, swelling and discomfort. Your gums are examined to check for active disease, recession and inflammation. Digital x-rays and intra-oral images are used to provide a more accurate diagnosis and to help show you what we see when looking in your mouth. These images allow us to detect problems at an early stage, when they are often most easily treated. We may also recommend additional tests, such as a periodontal evaluation or a CBCT scan, if necessary.
The goal of your dental exam is to identify any problems so that we can develop a treatment plan that will help keep your smile healthy and beautiful for years to come.
