Comprehensive Dental Exam

When you first come to your dentist, you will get a comprehensive dental exam. Such exams include:

X-rays are extremely helpful in detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss.

X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.

Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for signs of oral cancer.

Check the gums and bone around the teeth for signs of periodontal disease.

Tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
