Oral Examinations

Regular oral exams, performed twice a year, give your dentist the opportunity to identify developing oral health issues and make a plan to treat them accordingly. 

During your exam, your dentist will take a close look at the health of your teeth, gums, jaw and bite. 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 dental exam, your dentist will take the time to 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. 

Oral Health Care at Home

Brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day, and flossing once a day can help to keep your smile healthy between dental appointments. 

Dental 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.

Your hygienist will begin 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 thorough flossing of your teeth and gums.

Fluoride Treatment

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