Oral Health Examination
A comprehensive oral examination is performed by your dentist at your initial dental visit. At regular check-up exams, your dentist will include the following:
- Diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay in places not visible to the naked eye, and bone damage from gum disease or infection. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
- Oral cancer screening: Check the mouth areas for any signs of oral cancer.
Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
- Examination for tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay.
Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.
