what is a Dental Exam?

A huge part of dentistry is preventative care, which includes dental examinations to check for any current problems and stop future ones from arising. Cosmetic Dental Associates in Houston, Texas offers thorough exams where dentists not only check the teeth and gums, but the complete oral cavity. This includes conducting oral cancer screenings. Using advanced technology, the dentists use digital x-rays for clearer, more detailed images. With the diode laser, a number of issues can be safely and effectively addressed with comfort and convenience. To detect early cavities, DIAGNOdent and CARIVU are hand-held, advanced laser technologies used without the need for x-rays.

what does a dental exam include?

The dental examination seeks to evaluate the overall health of the patient’s teeth, gums, bones, and jaw. During the examination, the dentist will look at the patient’s mouth as well and take X-rays to get a more in-depth understanding of their oral care needs. Through physical exams and X-rays, the dentist will be able to assess and diagnose any cavities, chips, disease, and decay in the mouth. Patients will also receive a teeth cleaning following their examination. The dentist will discuss any issues or concerns regarding their exam as well as offer recommendations for care options.

How often do you need a dental exam?

Dentists highly recommends that patients receive a dental examination and check-up at least once a year, in addition to cleanings being received every six months. This ensures optimal dental health for each patient.
