What to expect during dental exams &

During dental exams and cleaning, we check the structure of your
mouth and look for signs of gum disease as well as cancer. Here’s what
you can expect;

Initial examination

During an initial examination, we use X-ray imaging technology to
create images of your teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues. We also
physically examine your jaws, cheeks, tongue, neck, face, and head to
check for potential problems. An Initial examination is usually
non-invasive. The initial examination also involves a discussion between
you and the dentist about your oral health with regard to lifestyle
habits, eating, brushing, flossing, etc.

Dental cleaning

Dental cleaning involves cleaning your teeth and gums by removing
plaque and tartar that build up over time and can cause tooth decay.
Having healthy gums is just as important as having healthy teeth. A
dental cleaning can reduce the risk of getting gingivitis (an initial
stage of gum disease).

Oral cancer screening

With increasing cases of oral cancer, we screen our patients for the
disease during regular dental exams to detect and treat it early.
