Oral Examinations

Having a routine oral examination preferably twice a year gives your dentist the opportunity to look for any oral health problems and develop treatment plans as needed.

Throughout your exam, your dentist will look closely at the health of your gums, teeth, jaw, and bite. Your exams could also include dental X-rays, oral cancer screenings, and other diagnostic procedures.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer can impact any part of your mouth and surrounding tissues. At your exam, your dentist will inspect your throat, lips, tongue, neck, face, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer which could be hard to see with the naked eye.

Caring for Your Oral Health at Home

To maintain your healthy smile between dental appointments, you need to brush your teeth two times a day for two minutes every time and floss a minimum of once a day.

Hygiene Cleaning

Either before or after your exam, your dental hygienist will conduct a full cleaning of your teeth and gums to treat and prevent disease.

They will start by using a scaler to remove any plaque and tartar build-up. Then, they will use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to clear away any leftover plaque or stains and finish with thorough flossing of your teeth and gums.

Fluoride Treatment

If you or your child is at a higher risk for tooth decay, your dentist might suggest using a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel to reverse or prevent tooth decay.
