What Is A Dental Exam?
Many people believe that a dental exam is something that should be conducted only when they have some sort of discomfort in their mouth. However, that is far from the truth. A dental exam is something you should visit us regularly for, irrespective of whether you have dental issues or not.
A dental exam is a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, throat, and neck. This exam is like a preventive measure to make sure you have no underlying dental issues. Plaque built up and tartar is something that could also cause major dental issues when ignored, which is why our professionals need to inspect your mouth to enable good oral hygiene.
This dental exam is a non-invasive procedure that not only rules out dental problems, but also looks for early signs of cancer. Sometimes, the tiniest of growths in your mouth, which you may think are nothing, could turn out to be cancerous. When our professionals examine your mouth, they take into consideration these little details and do not ignore any signs of dental or cancer problems that may appear in your mouth. This helps you to stay healthy. A dental exam is something you should come in for at least once or twice a year.
People with dental issues as small as a cavity problem or something like dental implants greatly benefit from the dental exam. It helps our professionals inspect your fillings or implants so that they can decide whether it needs to be changed or not.
Sometimes children get dental fillings and they tend to grow up with the same filling in their teeth. This filling will not fit properly in the tooth because of the change in the size of the jaw as the child grows. This could make the filling loose and when left unattended, it could cause a lot of problems for that tooth. Our professionals can examine and provide the right advice with regards to what needs to be done in such a scenario.
Dental implants also need to be looked after properly and our professionals will advise you with regards to what needs to be done to maintain the implants properly. This helps increase the life of your implants and helps you get comfortable with the various orthodontics that you have.
Dental advice can also be given to individuals that may be considered dental procedures such as veneers, Invisalign®, straightening crooked teeth, crowns, fillings, or implants. A dental exam is a thorough examination and provides an insight into the health of your mouth and gums.
