Oral Examinations

Ideally twice a year, you'll visit your dentist for a routine oral exam. This gives them the opportunity to identify any emerging oral health issues and develop a plan to treat them accordingly. 

During your exam, your dentist will closely check the condition of your teeth, gums, jaw and bite. This exam may also include an oral cancer screening, dental x-rays and any other diagnostic procedures that may be required. 

Oral Cancer Screening

Any part of the mouth or surrounding tissues can become infected with oral cancer. During your exam, your dentist will check your face, neck, throat, tissues, tongue, lips and gums for any signs of oral cancer, which can be difficult to identify with the naked eye. 

Oral Health Care at Home

Keeping your smile healthy between dental appointments is key to excellent oral health. Remember to brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes each time, and to floss at least once per day. 

Hygiene Cleaning

The deep cleaning is an essential component of your dental exam. Your dental hygienist will perform this critical task before or after your exam to prevent and treat disease. 

To start, a scaler will be used to remove any plaque buildup and tartar. Next, the hygienist will use a polisher topped with coarse toothpaste to remove any remaining plaque or stains, followed by a thorough flossing of your teeth and gums. 

Fluoride Treatment

If your dentist finds that you or your child is at high risk of tooth decay, a fluoride treatment may be recommended. This natural mineral can help to rebuild the minerals in your tooth enamel to prevent or reverse tooth decay.
