Oral Examinations

Regular oral exams, ideally twice a year, allow your dentist to identify any oral health issues and develop a treatment plan. 

During your exam, your dentist will look closely 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 exam, your dentist will check the 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

Be sure to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, and floss at least once a day to keep your smile healthy between appointments. 

Hygiene Cleaning

Before or after your exam, your dental hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth and gums to prevent and treat disease.

First, they will use a scaler to remove any tartar and plaque build-up. They will then use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any leftover stains or plaque, followed by thoroughly flossing your teeth and gums.

Fluoride Treatment

Your dentist may recommend a fluoride treatment if a patient has a high risk of tooth decay. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel to prevent or reverse tooth decay.
