Comprehensive Exams

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of care.”

Like the old proverb implies, we prioritize prevention above all else. We know that catching things early results in a winning situation for everyone. We make your comprehensive exam and cleaning visits thorough, gentle, and infomative.

In order to maintain the best oral health possible, regular comprehensive dental exams are a necessity. In fact, the American Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist at least twice a year. Regular exams are vital to assess possible problems such as gum disease, oral cancer, cavity development, and for replacing old, worn out dental work such as metal fillings and discolored crowns. Catching problems early on will prevent bigger problems from developing down the line, which in the long run will end up saving you discomfort, time, and money.

What Does a Comprehensive Exam Involve?

• We provide a thorough visual oral cancer screening.
• A comprehensive series of diagnostic x-rays will be taken so we can analyze the condition of all your teeth and bone structure.
• We conduct a complete periodontal screening to check for symptoms and evidence of gum disease.
• We check for any possible bite problems or jaw issues.
• A tooth-specific exam is provided for all of your teeth to check for cavities, examine the condition of other dental work, and identify cracked or missing teeth.
