Oral Examinations

Regular oral exams, ideally every six months, allow your dentist to identify any oral health issues you may have and create a treatment plan accordingly. 

During your exam, a dentist will take a close look at the health of your teeth, jaw, bite, and gums. Exams may also include dental X-rays, an oral cancer screening, and other diagnostic 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 possible signs of oral cancer which aren't easily detected by the naked eye. 

Oral Health Care at Home

When caring for your mouth between dental appointments, be sure to brush your teeth two times a day for two minutes each time while flossing 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 disease.

First, they will use a scaling tool to remove any tartar and built-up plaque. Next they will use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any leftover stains or remaining plaque, followed by a thorough flossing of your teeth and gums.

Fluoride Treatment

If you or your child has a high risk of tooth decay, fluoride treatment may be recommended by your dentist. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel,  preventing or reversing tooth decay.
