Oral Examinations

Regular oral exams, ideally twice a year, give your dentist the opportunity to identify any oral health issues and create a plan to treat them accordingly. 

During your examination, your dentist will take a close look at the health of your teeth, gums, jaw and bite. Examinations may also include dental x-rays, an oral cancer screening and other diagnostic procedures.

Oral Cancer Screening

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

Maintain Oral Health Care at Home

To keep your smile healthy between dentist appointments, be sure to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, and floss at least once a 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 any diseases.

They will being by using a scaler to remove any tartar and plaque build-up. Next, they will use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any leftover stains or plaque, followed by a full flossing of your teeth and gums.

Fluoride Treatment

If you or your child has a high risk of tooth decay, your dentist might also recommend a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can be used to help rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel to prevent or reverse tooth decay.
