Dental Exam & X-rays

Routine dental exams are important to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Additionally, they can help to avoid the financial costs associated with large treatment plans later on. We recommend  twice yearly checkups for people of all ages. At this frequency, most problems can be caught while they remain in an early stage.

How it's done

The dentist first examines your mouth visually, using dental equipment such as mouth mirrors, dental explorers, and high intensity lights.  He will look for cracked and decayed teeth, as well as review other important items such as:

  • Medical history review: The dentist will assess how any new medical conditions or illnesses may affect your dental health.
  • Examination for tooth decay: Your mouth will be checked for cracked or decayed teeth.
  • Oral cancer screening: The face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums will be checked for any signs of cancer.
  • Gum (periodontal) disease evaluation: Your gums and bone around the teeth will be checked for any evidence of periodontal disease.

Examination of existing restorations: Current fillings, crowns, and other restorations are examined to confirm that they are in good order

Additionally, your dentist will take diagnostic x-rays to reveal any other hidden problems.  Bitewing x-rays, which detect decay between the teeth, are typically taken every 12 months. Periapical x-rays are taken for a detailed view of the roots and surrounding structures of your teeth.  A panoramic x-ray, which involves standing in a machine that revolves around the head, is taken every 3-5 years to screen the entire jaw for any problems. .
