Comprehensive Dental Exam
The dental examination is a diagnostic evaluation of a patient’s overall oral health and hygiene.
During a dental examination, the doctor or hygienist may…
- check for signs of decay or periodontal disease
- ask about any medications
- take dental x-rays
- evaluate occlusion (bite)
- evaluate jaw
- discuss proper cleaning
- remove stains or debris
- take a dental impression
The doctor or hygienist will also perform an oral cancer exam. This involves feeling around the cheeks, gums, and tongue, under the jaw, and the sides of the neck for signs of oral cancer.
Good oral hygiene can mean the difference between healthy teeth and gums or serious dental problems. We believe in providing exceptional patient education for our guests at Champagne Smiles, helping you maintain good brushing and flossing habits, in addition to having your teeth evaluated and cleaned on a regular basis. Our dental team can recommend a number of options to make sure you have a bright, healthy smile for years to come.
