Comprehensive Dental Exam
Dental exams are a critical part of preventive dental care. The initial exam will involve a thorough inspection of your mouth, tongue and teeth. Most children and adults should get a dental exam every six months. Comprehensive exams also include: Interpretation of Digital Dental X-Ray. Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss. Gum disease evaluation. Oral cancer screening. Dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis). Removal of calculus, plaque and teeth polishing. Deep cleaning (scaling and root planing) may be recommended if excessive plaque and tartar deposits have developed below the gum line. Examination of tooth decay. Evaluation of existing restorations.
