Oral Examinations

Regular oral exams, ideally twice a year, allow your dentist to detect any oral health issues and devise a treatment plan to address them.

Your dentist will examine the health of your teeth, gums, jaw, and bite during your examination.

Dental X-rays, an oral cancer screening, and other diagnostic procedures may be included in your exam.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral cancer can affect any part of the mouth or the tissues around it. During your exam, your dentist will look for signs of oral cancer that are difficult to detect with the naked eye in the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums.

Oral Health Care at Home

Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, and floss once a day to try and keep your smile healthy in between dental appointments.

Hygiene Cleaning

Your dental hygienist will perform a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums before or after your exam to prevent and treat disease.

To begin, they'll use a scaler to scrape away any tartar or plaque.

They'll use a polisher and coarse toothpaste to remove any remaining stains or plaque, then floss your teeth and gums.

Fluoride Treatment

Your dentist may also recommend fluoride treatment if you or your child is at high risk of tooth decay. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can aid in the rebuilding of minerals in your tooth enamel, thereby preventing or reversing tooth decay.
