Comprehensive Dental Exams
Our dental team knows the importance of thorough cleanings and exams to prevent any major medical issues with your oral health. At your first appointment, Dr. Wood and his licensed dental hygienists perform a comprehensive exam that includes:
- Clinical examination of the teeth and existing restorations to check for cracks, tooth decay, and abnormal conditions.
- Take any necessary dental x-rays to detect tooth decay, loss of the bone supporting the teeth, and abnormal conditions in the bone.
- Periodontal examination to check the gums and bone around the teeth for any indication of gum disease.
- Oral cancer screening examination to detect abnormalities in the tissues in and around the mouth, face, and neck.
- Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) screening examination.
- Evaluation of the patient’s symptoms and attention to the patient’s concerns relating to their teeth or other oral structures.
Effective Teeth Cleanings
Prevention is one of the most effective ways to keep poor oral health at bay. Scheduling and keeping your routine six-month checkup are vital to maintaining healthy teeth and gums.
Our Thorough Teeth Cleanings Include:
- Remove dental plaque and tartar, which causes gingivitis, gum disease, and tooth decay.
- Polish and floss teeth to remove stains and debris.
- Apply topical fluoride when necessary.
- Perform an oral cancer screening examination.
- Take and examine any necessary x-rays.
