Oral Examinations

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

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 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 otherwise. 

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 dental appointments. 

Hygiene Cleaning

Before or after your exam, your dental hygienist will perform a cleaning of 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 flossing of your teeth and gums.

Fluoride Treatment

Your dentist may also 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.
