Oral Examinations

Routine oral examinations, ideally scheduled twice each year, give dentists the chance to identify emerging oral health issues can create a treatment plan based on their assessment.

During your exam your dentist will take a close look at your tooth health as well as the health of your gums, jaw, teeth and bite, These exams may also include diagnostics like oral cancer screenings, X-rays and other procedures.  

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer can affect any part of the mouth or surrounding tissues. During your exam, your dentist will check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer which are difficult to detect with the naked eye. 

Oral Health Care at Home

In order to keep your smile healthy, functional, and bright between dental appointments, make sure you brush your teeth twice each day for two minutes at a time and floss at least once each day.

Hygiene Cleaning

Before or after your exam, your dental hygienist will perform a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums to prevent and treat disease.

To start, your dentist will use a scaler to remove tartar and plaque buildup. Then, they will use a polisher and coarse toothpaste in order to remove any leftover stains or plaque, followed by a thorough flossing of both your gums and teeth.

Fluoride Treatment

If your kid or you have a high risk of tooth decay, your dentist may recommend that you make a fluoride treatment part of your appointment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that may help to rebuild the minerals in your teeth enamel in order to prevent, or even reverse, tooth decay.
