Dental Exams

Stay on top of your oral health with our thorough dental exams. Our experienced dentists assess your teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of issues.

Regular dental exams are a critical component of preventive healthcare. At Select Dental Office, we provide detailed dental exams that go beyond just checking for cavities, encompassing a comprehensive assessment of your entire oral health. These exams help in early detection and management of oral health issues before they develop into complex problems.

Importance of Regular Dental Exams

Dental exams allow for early detection of potential oral health issues, from tooth decay and gum disease to oral cancer. Regular exams are vital because they:

  • Help prevent dental problems before they start or worsen.
  • Save you time and money by avoiding costly and extensive treatments.
  • Keep your natural teeth healthy and intact for as long as possible.

What Happens During a Dental Exam?

  1. Visual Inspection: Using specialized tools, your dentist will look for cavities, plaque, tartar, and any signs of tooth decay or gum disease.
  2. Digital Diagnostics: Depending on your oral health status, X-rays or other digital imaging may be used to view the underlying health of your teeth and jawbone.
  3. Gum Disease Evaluation: Your dentist checks the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
  4. Oral Cancer Screening: We perform a screening for signs of oral cancer, including checking your lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums.
  5. Review of Dental Appliances: If you have dentures, bridges, implants, or braces, your dentist will examine the integrity and fit of these appliances.
