What Is A Dental Exam?
Dental exams are an important part of any dental care routine because they allow you and your dentist to play a proactive role in maintaining the health and appearance of your smile. An annual oral exam at Say Cheeze Dental is effective for diagnosing caries (cavities), gum disease, oral cancer, and other concerns that could be harming your oral and overall health. Generally conducted during biannual dental cleaning visits, regular exams allow our skilled dental team an opportunity to study the teeth, gums, bite, jawbone, and further oral structures for signs of oral problems so we can start the proper treatment as soon as possible. Give our dental office in Apex, NC a call to schedule comprehensive dental exams for yourself and your family.
What Can I Expect During A Dental Exam?
During your visit, our dentists will start by going over your dental record and discussing any problems you're dealing with, cosmetic or otherwise. We may also perform a series of digital x-rays to get a better picture of your teeth and jawbone and determine if there are any issues we may need to address. We can also perform a screening for oral cancer, evaluate the alignment of your bite and temporomandibular joints, and assess your teeth for cavities and the fit of any dental appliances. A gum screening may also be performed to detect any indications of periodontal disease.
