About Dental Exams
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.
Dental Examination Reviews
"I had work done on two teeth last month and cleaning of the teeth 3 days ago. Dr.Spike's staff is amazing, warm, caring and professional. Dr.Davis has been my dentist for several years.

"My trips to the dentist are not dreaded. At Cosmetic Dental Associates I am always greeted by name, with a smile and am in the back within a minute or two. I feel that I always get a thorough cleaning and examination. I refer Cosmetic Dental Associates to my friends who are looking for a dentist. They are always delighted with their experiences as well.

"Dr. Davis and Nicole are wonderful....very patient. (Especially for someone as fearful of the dentist chair as I am). He is very thorough and always tells me step by step what he is going to do and what to expect before he does it. His office staff is also great! I would highly recommend!

"I like going to my dentist, Dr. Davis ! I have erased the first statement because I know it is difficult believe. I had an emergency on 6/28. Liz and Nicole got me into the office I was aware that Dr. Davis would not be there but I saw a great young Dr. Colt Reilly, he was very caring and concerned about my pain. So here is the thing, if you are looking for a dentist to care for your dental health with gentle care and concern, Spiker Davis is the dentist for you and if he says you can trust someone else, believe him. After the first visit I realized how important those who greet and assist are to my feeling of well being, so, Nicole, Liz and everyone, you are the greatest.With much respectJean "- J. / Demandforce / Jun 29, 2014
What to Expect
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.
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.
The cost for an annual dental examination varies among practices, but it averages between $100 and $300. The front office will consult with the patient’s insurance companies prior to their visit, since most companies cover this cost up to 100%. Patients paying out of pocket may discuss payment options during their consultation.
